Great look, might want to consider lengthening the swing arm while you are at it to keep a balanced look. A Sportster has you sitting on top of the wheel and on a Softail you sit on top of the tire. By making the swing arm 3 inches longer it gives you softail dimensions and a balanced custom look. Also if you switch to a chain a 180 tire will fit without having to widen the frame, just cut the struts and make your fender with internal struts. Just a thought while you got the tool box open......
