custom glide build

about three months ago the belt went on my glide so being thats its a bigger then normal job to replace i decided to tear it down and do some custom prokjects on it
the first was to decide paint and red oxide was the winner with this in mind i decided to hot rod it

so i made custom front indicators



and will be putting vintage stop lights in the bags



i also designed and built a custom frame cover so i can use a single saddle i had



and on the bike



also lowered the front fender



and got a set of shocks off a new street glide which dropped the rear 1 inch as well

i also painted the inner fairing to match



i have the bags to paint and put in carpet bag liners i made paint the outer fairing and the tank also i will be removing the true dual chrome covers and wrapping them in black exhaust wrap will post more as i get it done

hope you all like it so far when finished it will be getting some custom pinstriping and it should look very cool i hope
