Changed sprockets to run better smoother on highway also, running o-ring chain . Tank is original early sportster, rear fender is narrow flat rigid type. very clean and mounted no hardware on rear of fender and seat shock was incorporated into the fender also. The coils , battery and wiring are in the ammo box which worked out perfectly. It was also blk. powder coated and tooled leather insert was made to match seat and theme of bike inserted into the lid. I fabricated the forward controls and ran the rear brake on a cable , way cleaner than anything else and works great .

I painted the bike in Pirate Tattoo Graphics . with goldleaf and pinstripes around panels. Bike was originally satin blk. with gloss urethane over the panels . Then I painted it Inferno orange pearl and saved all the artwork , added orange metalflake scallops and re cleared everything.Bike is very detailed ,Chrome and polishing everywhere. Running 36 mikuni carbs .This Bike is Fast and Loud , READY TO SHOW & GO .. This Bike is up for SALE $5,000.00 o.b.o  E-mail me or Contact Freebird Cycles in Lompoc, CA
