Default My '83 Ironhead

Hey guys,
I just dropped off my tanks and fenders at the powder coating place. I figure I'll post a couple before photos and keep track of the work I do as I go along.
I picked up the bike a couple of weeks ago, it's an 83 XLH with 24k miles.
Here are the the pics:





So far I've bought lowering shocks, forward controls, drag bars, stretched tank, solo La Rosa seat, front & rear fender (bobbed) and air cleaner.
Once I get everything all together I'll post the next set of pics.

Thanks; I can't wait to get the new parts on. I think the copper vein powder coat I went with should look pretty cool, lots of texture. I'm trying to find a place to get some smaller parts copper plated, might just have to find a metallic copper powder though.

That's very nice, though I'd keep it just the way it is! How much did you give for it?

I paid $2500. I'm going to keep all the original equipment off to the side so I can go back to original if desired. It was registered and inspected for the year and started right up. I was very happy with it.
