    It's growing on me. Doesn't quite make me gag any more, lol.

    Anyone have a slick way to protect/attach the wiring under the fender? I'm all ears on that one. I have some things tossing around in my head, but not real keen on any of them yet.

    I looked at the Harley loom tape. It sticks on to the underside of the fender. It is used on new bikes, so it must work somewhat. But then I chickened out and just ran it under the seat to the tail light housing.

    I had a fender painted and had to do it. Like drag says I used tube, but with tabs, with nuts welded to the tab , then welded to the tube. 2 small screws from the out side, tube secure and paint ok. My only suggestion is run it on the left side, cant see it on the kickstand. LOL

    Here's how I would do it, since ya already got paint laid on ...

    You got two holes drilled into the fender to mount the light ...
    Take a piece of flat stock, drill two holes in it to mount inside the fender on the taillight bolts ....
    Make it long enough so the pipe can be welded to it ....
    Now you can just drill one hole at the other end of the fender for the pipe with a ear tab welded on ....

    I just use auto motive tubing and silicone it to the inside of the Fender .
    A few small globs to hold it in place at first. After it hardens put a bead along the top and bottom and then over the top of the whole thing. Won't ever budge and take vibration well. Have it on the shovel since 2004 and the knuck since 2009.
    Simple and no hard edges.
    Counter sink that tail light under the Fender until the lens is about a 1/4" under the Fender .
    It will look a lot cleaner.
    Sideways pics show the lights tucked under the Fender on both bikes.
    Looking good.

    Gotta love V-Twin fitment, lol.

    How the heck did they get the bend in this return line so far off.

    I had the same problem with 2 out of the 3 repop hard lines on my U model. Mine were so far off I ended up cutting them where they go behind the rear pipe and finishing the connection with rubber. Worked great!

    Yesterday she started for the first time in 37 years! Still need to finish up the exhaust and a few other things and dial in the carb and timing, but it was awesome to hear it come to life!

    No, I had to bend it around the over-the-transmission exhaust.

    It started out like in the photo a few posts up....

    Trust me, it's upside down. Those two lines are supposed to go down by the tank behind the pipe. All those repop lines fit like shit, but if you are routing them properly getting them to fit should not be too bad.
