I think it's cool which is why I was asking. Anxious to see how it looks with the clear on it.

Fine as a frog's hair split 30 ways. Looking good.. He did a great job. I love the tank looking like gas spill causing the patina down the side.

I also swapped out my stock cast wheels 16" front and 15" rear to spoke 18" front and 15" rear all black with white walls and lowered the bike 3"s in rear and 1.5 in the front to make up the height difference to the new front tire. going to start reassembly tonight will try and post up pics tomorrow together.

well here it is fellas/gals shes back together. so everything i did for the rebuild,
1. 16"/15" cast wheels removed and replaced with factory spoke wheels 18"/15"
2. some DIY white wall tires so far about 100 miles on them and look like they did when i sprayed them (will update every month)
3. SS customs POD kit w/ 152.5 mains
4. parts painted/airbrushed, Tank, side covers, rear fender (1300 front fender mod), bars, headlight, helmet
5. progressive front springs lowered 2" to make up for the extra height from the new front tire/wheel setup
sorry for poor pics will get better ones tomorrow before leaving for vacation
