- Custom Headlight Bracket (made by me) with two Hella FF75 mounted (Bottom for low beam Top and Bottom for High Beam)

I think you're right. Most of the comments I overheard about the other bikes were about bolt on items rather than the amazing amount of customization that went into a lot of these bikes.

How loud are the cherry bombs? Looking at doing a 4-1 into expansion into cherry bomb as an under-body.
Loud enough to give me a headache until I made silencers out of 6" long 3/4" nipples, now it has a deep soft rumble and the back pressure is back to where it should be.

That's a sick looking bike.

Nothing like some store-bought individuality to really blend in with the herd. I saw a guy once set the alarm off on a Harley by getting on the wrong bike, quickly hopping off, looking around, going "oh", and going a few bikes down to his virtually identical "custom" Harley.

Great looking bike. Love the lack of chrome. Chrome is for those that like to spend their time polishing and cleaning, not riding. It seems to me some motorcycle owners are more interested in what a dealer can install from a catalog, rather than what they engineer and or build. Just remember any idiot can spend money.
