Had to start doin some work on this one again, its been awhile but I got it in paint. De-chromed the block and painted silver, leaving just the top covers in chrome. Studded the seat , de-chromed the light and added a visor, this will also be body color. This is just a quick mock up , nothing cemented in yet...the studs photograph odd, made them out of small pin-heads , they look like they need to be pushed in a little more.......

It looks great, Ken! Nice cut fenders, paint, springer, custom handlebars, studded seat. It's all coming together nicely. I REALLY like those handlebars. Did you bend them from aluminum?
