    Sweet man, im glad you got rid of the black on the nose cone and rocker boxes. I want to do the same to mine. Did you polish them up while on the engine or did you remove them for polishing?

    That front end and wheel is also a big improvement

    In the end I took the motor apart to get some of the hard to reach areas { I am OCD } Here is a shot of it back on the bike

    That's a great result!

    It cleaned up nicely. Don't really get what this whole welded on backbone thing was meant to be. Would be fun to see more pictures of it in action

    Thanks for the welcome messages.

    Here are a few more shots of it. Side profile of the bike.I used a 2012 Sportster 48 front fork set. It is 48 front tripple trees with 39mm forks extended 2 inches. newer style wheels. 21 inches for the front, 16 in the rear both with sealed bearings. I also added a new style 4 piston rear caliper - since its my only way to stop
