Update -

I got a pretty good start on things this weekend. Shortly after this photo was taken, I installed the J&M speaker grills, the glove box doors, and the smaller gauges.

Next was the radio - I run the Hawg Wired set up, since I am using an aftermarket Sony HU. The bezel simply would not fit. The areas of the cutout adjacent to each corner seemed to 'pinch' in a little further. No fitting at all. Making matters worse, the paint chipped while working on it. Good thing I was working alone in the garage...I had some colorful language to share.

Oh well, I made a late call to may painter, and brought the inner back down. He'll be sanding out the opening until the bezel fits, and then repainting as needed to repair the paint damage.

Still got some good work on it, and installing the inner really isn't that bad a job. It was nice yesterday, and I was able to get my knees in the wind on my Springer, so all is well.

More to follow!

Looking real good, you'll be done in plenty of time to start spring.

Time to begin on my CVO SG. I needed to pull my bars (PYOs), mirrors, lower ABS brake line, and a few other small things.

Now that I have my outer fairing off, I'll be bringing that to Gunslingers with the RG pieces for matching. The pinstriped flames will be done on the RG as well. Goal is to have this look like it came off the HD line as a CVO Road Glide Custom.

One last look at the Batwing:








Getting into the guts:
What kind of lift is that in the picture, usualy the bike lifts have small metal wheels, your has nice wheels where you actualy can roll the bike around the shop.

Thank you.

That's a J&S Jack.

http://www.jsjacks.com/products-page.../#.UOsjO3ePZtg

When I ordered it, they had a special for a free accessory. I added the T-Handle, and also purchased the drain pan. For any touring bike, the drain pan is a must have. Otherwise, draining the fluids (especially the transmission) is a big mess.

It rolls very easily, and that jack is solid. I've been climbing off and on repeatedly to adjust the bars, install this & that, etc. It's so solid, I am actually thinking of getting a second one. I like to store my bikes off the concrete, plus it's nice to be able to move them easily. And with the front wheel off the bike, there are no issues with the bike being "off balance", and the same applies for the rear wheel.

And lastly, they're made in America (Wisconsin) and have fantastic customer service.
