Latest pic of the iron.

Did a 2 inch tank lift as well as swapped the old 4.5gal tank to the stock 3.1 gal tank. Moved the ignition and coils to other side and tucked the wires a bit. I plan to powder coat the heat shields flat black as well as the bar that's on it right now.

heat shields on the pipes matte black? I could have sworn you had matte black shorty's last I saw you. I dig the tank lift, but no so sure about that setup on the lowboy. I've already determined forward controls will not be for me.
