Anodized black allen head caps for forks (used to be a socket head in chrome (I dislike chrome)
Drag bars
Blacked out ring for gauge cluster
Harley digital gauge cluster
flipped mirrors upside down
Diamond black HD grips
Forward controls
relocated the ignition switch and coils to left side of bike.
2in tank lift
wire tuck
Screaming Eagle air cleaner (blacked out)
Cobra Fi2000 programmer
Vance and Hines short shots, but about to install 2" LAF pipes
HD thumb screw for seat(s)
