Tell them the forks and tanks are from a HD Softail. They'll have alook at one of them and may be satisfied that the changes have been merely a parts swap.

Talked to the inspection guys on phone, that it has a soft tail front shouldn't be a problem, its all the other stuff, lights and brakes. So really all I need to do is change indicators . Front and back, got to have symbol on it, maybe back brake due that it doesn't work real well. Has to done any way, thanks guys

Hey Jon, if ya gunna buy some indicators check out olfarts stuff at independant parts. I got some neat little bullet indicators for about $40 a pair which have "e" marked lenses to get ya through the roadworthy. They're small enough and good enough to keep them on the bike permanently. Cheers Mark

Bean doing non cosmetic stuff. had to go through wiring due to battery being flatten every time it sat for more than a day. flushed back brakes and put new back master cylinder and rewired press switch for it. brought a tool bag for front. the misses got the saddle bags for me as a surprise. think they are growing on me. Been looking at 16 in apes hanger on ebay and king sporty tank and new gages and stuff. Here's what it looks like at mow.

G'day jsalt, I have something for you to consider regarding your handlebars. Instead of straight out 16in ape hangers you may want to consider shorter apes with longer risers instead. It'll give you a different look while giving you the same height, just a thought.
