    Thanks for all the compliments. Now if I could just get my wife to do something other than roll her eyes...

    Form, fit and function check of the front-end complete. Fairing and bag lids to the shop tomorrow to be re-painted with the stretched bags and fenders. Talked to FBI today and the drop seat kit should ship later this week.

    Matched rear wheel to the front is the only way to go... Not that you see it that much but at a show or when someone looks at it that is the extra wow that usually throws your bike over the edge. I understand more $ but definitely a more finished bike with it. Even with air ride and stretched bags you still see it.. Only one way to go!!! MATCH REAR WHEEL TO FRONT!

    2" shorter dampeners with the 12 degree tree and 23" wheel in front. Arnott 9.5" air ride in back. I'm waiting to see how close the rear fender LEDs will be to the rear tire before trying to go any lower in back. Unfortunately, I go to work in the dark and come home in the dark and not enough room in the garage to get a good side shot. I'll set it outside this weekend and get a pic with it "slammed".

    I didn't really want to know the actual number but I need some more stuff so this is probably a good exercise...

    The tally so far:

    23" Ness G3 Wheel $1260
    Ness G3 rotors $600
    23" Cobra tire $148
    Yaffe stretched classic front fender $495
    Kewl Metal 12 degree tree $1050
    Rinehart 4" slip-ons $585
    Sinister raked fairing $800
    S&S intake $470
    D&M Spike cones & filters $830
    FBI Drop Seat kit $2,100 (painted)
    FBI ABS manifold $200
    Arnott 9.5" air ride $950
    10 " PYO monkey bars $350
    Extended Cables and wire $280
    LED kit, turn signals, load balancer $280
    Blue gauges and radio LEDs $200
    True Kustom rear fender with tri-bar LED signals $900
    True Kustom 4" stretched bags $600
    Paint $700
    Clear bra $400
    Razor pak, solo & two-up racks, pad $1300

    With some other misc, shipping and taxes ~$16k so far...

    Still need banana boards, chrome controls, custom flairing of the FBI side panels, stretched tank, and front LED tri-bar turn signals in the fairing. I'm so happy, I'm just gonna go s**t a brick and cry now... because my wife is gonna be so pissed...

    Side shot for Classic$98

    1) I suck at photography and 2) had to borrow an image from the internets to find a similar angle for comparison.

    Its not as radical as I had hoped and doesn't "slam" at all. I hope the drop seat and the stretched bags help or I may have to rake the frame sooner than I thought...
