Do have any pics of how you straightened the line?

Sweet bike, is that an actual Nightster tank... or a re-pop?

changed it up a bit until winter, then it's getting changed again...

satin blacked the tins, 48 tank, and Harley "bobber style air cleaner cover" that i had to wait for 2 months for...

4 inch tank lift

tried a little pin striping. first attempt and i must say it's hard as shit to do.

the old filler piece for the top of the brow fell off at 80mph so i made one from an old piece of carbon fiber i had lying around.

new tail light. FTW= Forever Two Wheels?, F The World?, For The Win?... you be the judge..

hound dog, still not impressed...

If the next one is defective too, I will be posting an open letter on the interweb slamming HD's customer service and..... oops wrong thread.
