Thanks for the compliments.
I dont remember the parts I used. I was trying to keep with the "arched" theme. That's why I kept the ridges from the tank extensions in-tact. The side mout tail was one of the first out still with the arch theme. I think the mirrors were the cheapest part actually. I had a bazillion catalogs I ordered from (pre-internet boom).
The bike was originally a 76 FX (fugly) that was customized with mid-50's FL parts. It had the 5 gal tanks w/built-in petcock, dash with border trim. The front FL fender was narrowed to accomodate the 19" rim.
I wanted something that looked old and new at the same time.
