Looks very good. Love the Fatboy wheels especially. IMO that's the only way a Sporty should have a Wide Glide...

That is perfect! . You might consider putting a fork brace where the fender mounts are for the front end. It would help, and look good. Good job man!

Thanks guys. I tried to keep it simple since this was my first attempt.

I am not going to put the rear fender back. I built it for my wife and she wanted it clean the way it is now.

look great, really dig the tank paint. Only thing I dont like is the rear brake plumbing and light wires that run across the open area. route them along a tube and it will be cleaner. other than that look really really good
