Thanks everyone for your kind words. I wanted to build something factory ish that HD would be afraid to do. With the small tank I can still go about 110 mi.

It's a 250. I think 240 or even the stock 200 on the newer FXST's would of been nice too.I had to do a lot to get the 250 to fit the stock frame.
