    Headlight seems a bit on the low side……kidding…Looks great! just what is the whole “green is bad luck” thing about?
    Also, what are you using for a gas cap?

    IN the early days of dirt track raceing the Harley team had drab green paint jobs and they had a lot of crashes so it was said that green bikes were bad luck. Later one of the team racers had a pet pig he took with him to the tracks and that ‘s how Harleys got the nick name HOG’S

    The bike handles really good with the rake I do need longer forks though it is a little low in the front. I picked the green for the “bad luck” reason and so far it has held true I have laid the bike down twice”kickstand drags” but got that fixed up and he has not failed me again.
