Default Opinions on my customization?

Didn't like the factory look of my fatboy. Doing some customization to give it an old look. Saving the original parts so I can put it back to stock if I decide to later. The painted parts were all picked up on Ebay.
Trying to get an old rusty look. Original seat pictured here has been lowered and moved back. Picked up a LePera barebones today and will test fit it tomorrow. Next steps are a 21" big spoke front wheel in black and some 16" apes. I got this color using flat black sprinkled with some burnt copper. Looks really nice, but spray can paint is easy to scratch. Rear fender is a generic heavy steel fender I'm custom fitting.

Good choice on the bike, and I like where you're going with it a lot.

Looks great! The rear fender was a nice choice. When you do the wheel swap it's going to finish it off nicely.

I am liking it quite a bit, though I'm not 100% sold on the stock, painted football AC cover. It's not that I don't like it, I do. Perhaps if the picture were bigger and clearer. Overall, the bike looks really cool.
