I would like to find another set of skins from that era and have it painted back to the stock colors. I like the blue though, not many of them out there in that color.Ironworker40 - I don't believe the rake was changed, I had no Harley experience back then so a shop did the initial assembly work (I did gain plenty of mechanical experience soon after, a good life lesson in there somewhere about the concept of buyer beware...…) but neck area doesn't appear to have been altered. It handles well with the main limiting factor being ground clearance.
Always liked the look of a springer front end and am happy to have something unique.
BOWEN - welcome. I do like the tank artwork on your bike now, were you thinking of returning it to stock colour as part of a full restoration?
