Here she is up to this point... that fatboy seat was a bugger to get modded on!...the slip ons are coming off and being replaced by sportster slip ons (the onl ones do not have a mount bracket)

I really like the look of the seat. Bugger or not, looks like you did a great job.

Don't see the rear t/s...are they going back in the stock location, or do you have another plan?

Forgive me for asking, are there spikes sticking out of your license plate? Maybe it's just an "optical contusion." LOL

Your ride is looking good, Clock. Keep it up.

I made a C from some straping material I picked up at Lowes and bolted it to the front of the tab on the front seat and then had to mock up a strap for the pasenger seat.. bolts thru the rear fender... kind of a pain to to get it off but it is secure.

I added turn signals to the tail light.. I am also adding some to the hard bags.. the chrome side rails are going away soon.. I have a sprotster back rest that I will be replacing them with.. fits right on with only one bolt hole to drill.
