As far as headlight bucket goes you can get really nice 7" side mount buckets and vintage style headlight ears from Dime City Cycle. They are awesome guys.
Really?!?!? I will be PM'ing you!!

We always go through the garage and you really can't see our front door when you do. Well today I discovered that the Post Office had left my ignition switch and key yesterday. Here is a video after the installation was complete. After the install I didn't have a tail light. Thanks to the search function and the members of this site, it mentioned that if the fuse is blown, that the speedo light won't work either. Well I hadn't ridden at night so I didn't even know that the speedo light wasn't working either. So upon checking it, sure enough I had a blown fuse in the #8 fuse holder. Installed a new one and went for a ride at night for the 1st time and loved the ride!! Planning on taking it to work in the morning!!

Here is a video of how the bike is looking and in particular the key being installed.

If you replace the cam cover gasket, replace the four sealing washers under the bolts. They probably have more influence on the seepage than the gasket itself.

Well what do u think of this look? Do the colors contrast nicely or do they just clash? Please be brutally honest, as this is just a Photoshop my son did. So at this point no actual changes have been made!!

Well I pulled the trigger on this tank about 3 minutes ago!!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/160934792875...84.m1497.l2649

I kind of chickened out on the green/cream tank too long and it sold. And I REALLY like this black one. And I got it for the $400 I had said was the most I wanted to pay on page 4. (Plus another $37 shipping). It was a buy-it-now of $599 or best offer and he took the $400. And actually it will be less, because even the old tank should be worth $100-$150 I would think

Going riding now to burn all the gas out of the old tank!! Lol. And have some fun of course!
