NICE. dig the color scheme, and the sissy bar...

the only critique i have is that front heat shield.. really catches my eye.

if you dont mind me asking, where did you pick up that s&s air cleaner insert?

and what kind of hand grips/throttle controls are those?

This bike looks really nice. I was curious as to where you got the gas tank, oil tank, and handlebars from? Im looking to upgrade my 81 Sporty, so just looking for some places to look.

The gas tank is known as a "Porkster." I'm pretty sure you can get a new one from J & P but you might be able to find a used one on Ebay or at a swap meet. The oil tank is just a chrome version of the stock tank and the handlebars are just drag bars on six inch risers. I have sold this bike since this thread was started.
