Antny, love the pinup on the side covers. I wanted to do the same on my black Bonnie, is it a sticker or painted on?

Here is mine. Had some Aluminum Bar Stock laying around the shop ant work.... some time on the lathe and this was the outcome.... Matches the brushed aluminum and "Sporty" look of the bike IMO.

Close Up.....


"Far" Shot....

Nice mod, but I've found that Telecaster knobs really smooth out the bottom-end and give considerably better low-end power. And the top-end is virtually the same. But there's much more to be had.

I've made about 20 dyno runs with different knobs and, so far, the '57 Gibson "Les Paul Sunburst" knobs beat them all, as they hold about a solid 6 lb/ft advantage from 2500 RPM all the way to the redline.

Just so you'll know,
