got rid of the brown stripe

After 2 years of looking at the brown stripe I finally got the bike painted. Color is now black and silver marbled.

That does look really nice. I have a 2011 Ultra that spends 90% of her life pretending to be a custom. With mods to match. (BTW, I do love the detach TP and the ability to change it up for longer rides and/or if my sweetie wants to tag along). But the stripe; ugh. And I get crap from my riding buddies about it all the time ("nice brown stripe; really sets off the Arlen Ness 10 gauge wheel"). Time to pull the trigger and do what you did.

Once I make up my mind, I'm full of indecision.

Nice looking bike, that brown stripe (to each his own) sure wasn't a good look!

S&S 106 big bore, 585 cams, headwork, timken conversion, welded and trued crank, foundation done the rest is trivial and fun to change
