Bike looks great! Can you share any details on the 107 build? It's one of my planned mods and right now I'm looking at the FuelMoto 107 EZ kit.
Mine was a local built by a local shop. S&S 551 cams, pulled great but ran out of steam @ 4K. If I were doing it again I would pick a cam that hangs around longer.

Trust Fuel moto, they do all the legwork for you.

If I remember correctly, they called that "Chrome Yellow" didn't they? I think yellow is a lot like brown on bikes. For every bike painted a shade that knocks your eyes out (like this one) there are 10 others that just don't cut it. I've always thought that 2012 was a highwater mark for HD's paint stylists - Big Blue Pearl, Chrome Yellow, 'Skunk' CVO, and the 2 tone blue CVO.

I gotta say I’m always impressed looking at the older bike factory colors and schemes. There was unfortunately a period starting 10 years ago they just sucked. Last 2 years they’re finally coming around again

Not to mention that any CVOs with a paint scheme similar to what used to be standard on CVOs (since 2009) , now cost $3-4k extra in addition to what a basic CVO costs. Shifting further and further towards becoming the boutique sales model that Zeitz desires.

Well I am a sucker for flat black, I like how the red accents the bike very nice, I did the same just in different places,
Yeah about that pic of Rushmore, I rode the short yellow bus...... I looked at that picture five or six times at most of the time when I was coming back to check on the thread I would see that picture, and think to myself why in the hell would he put a picture of a mountain and not his bike just doesn't make a damn lick of sense.then Mike made a comment about you being a smartass. Finally the light went off in my head. Hahaha Mount Rushmore.......
I'm headed to the corner now.....I know I know face the walll......
