I have been going over my 2005 Softail Deluxe FLSTNI with a retro makeover and have finally finished Phase I of the project. So far, to add even more retro appeal to the already old school Deluxe, I went with the BB Reproduction saddlebags, nostalgic round air cleaner with SE A/C and Stage 1 ECM, H-D mustache bar, Heritage Classic bag guards, Corbin Classic Solo seat, H-D solo luggage rack, frenched lights, tear drop script mirrors, V&H Bigshot staggered exhaust, Metzeler ME880 wide whitewalls, chrome toolbox and layback license plate. Phase II of this project will most likely be a Stage II 95" kit.

Looking Great, I like the old style bags.

Current issue of American Iron magazine. It's even the same color. I guess great minds think alike. I would love to have a bike like that.

Actually I was reffering to the banner the top of the page but is it in AIM?

Also did you send Bean an email because he has been trying to reply but it keeps getting returned, possibly your aol spam blocker settings or something. Anyways if you did and haven't heard from him, give him a call sometime.

Here's a comparison. The top bike is my project, the middle bike is the Klock Werks late model Fatboy in the November '05 AIM and at the bottom is the original, a late 50's/early60's FLH Duo-Glide. We're getting there!

While we are on the nostalgic kick, I thought I would post a couple of mine. My pics didn't turn out to well because of the light. I recently added the half-moon floorboards, I though they belonged on this bike.

I need to find a host server so I can show them bigger.

Ni-i-i-ce! I like the floor boards, and the round mirrors. You're kicking a$$ in the photo contest! Whose slip-ons are those? They look to narrow (streamlined) to be stockers and too long to be C/S?

Good em from M and M Cycles. They are HD issues. I really like them, to me the stock Deluxe footboards look like the old gas pedals from the 70's that looked like a big foot!
