Got the bike back together just before work tonight. Rode it to work, took some quick pictures with my phone. Still waiting on the front fender and the rear fender strut covers.
Triples trees coated black, black risers, pipe shileds coated black, rear turn signals gone, black turn signals up front, Progressive 430's and Progressive HD springs up front, and polyurethane bushings installed.

Looks good man! Bet it rides a lot better with the new suspension.....
Thanks Tex!

I didn't have time to fine tune the shocks, once it was together I had to head to work (midnight shift), but did some adjusting this morning, then took it out on some backroads. Definitely an improvement, all the way around. Really smooth at 75.... Also got those damn marks off the tire, I didn't even realize they were still on there when I left for work (lack of sleep).
Probably do the rocker covers next....

Lookin Good! I also like the blue color. Those slots in the headlight, are they white or chrome? Can you paint them the same blue as the bike? I might vote for no fender either but would like to see it on first.

The headlight is black anodized and then has the contrast cuts machined in. Not white or chrome. It matches all the covers I put on (handlebar clamp, rear shocks, etc.). It is a new item that Headwinds just started making, once I seen it, I figured it would be a good fit.
Again, thanks for the comments about the bike, glad you all like it!

lookin' good! Check out Doss front directionals, which are a low profile type that fits under the mirrors. Don't have 'em in my sig pic. but I've attached one. Since you've removed the rear directionals, I figured you were going for the minimalistic approach. I really like those bad ass spokes!
