B/E

That is a fine looking bike!
I like the details on the bike.
Be careful around dOOd, he likes a chrome starter.
Your headlight looks great.
You should be proud of that machine!

B/E,
Bike looks awesome. :2vrolijk_21: Great mods tastefully done. Don't pay any attention to S/B about the starter I do want one, but I'll get mine like you did yours.... when it goes bad. ;D

Had been trying to sharpen up the clutch cable area for several months. Stock routing attachment was 2 pieces of black plastic. Not worthy of serious CVO OCD! Finally saw the solution on the new CVO Fat Bob. Because the WG2 frame is thicker on top and narrower on bottom, HD did not make a chrome cable guide until this year. Got the one for the Fat Bob and it fits perfect on the thicker upper portion of the WG2. Looks WAY nicer! Yes, those are chrome zip ties.

Kuryakyn FINALLY came out with the last piece of the controls puzzle - the Flamin' Brake pad. Got one of the first ones and now the transformation is complete. I think these look way nicer than the HD flame peg series and the Flamin' Switchblade pegs create a virtual floorboard. Several riding positions are possible and I just love this setup from both a functionality and looks perspective. Competition is a good thing!

Sideview - very pleased with the results. Gold cables go well. Got a chrome coil cover I'm going to try. Also thinking about painting a gold or chrome strip down the indented part of the red coil cover. Input always appreciated.

Have always been bothered by the black plastic patch behind the battery box. Didn't know what it was until I started looking at other bikes.

It's the ignition key location for some other Dyna's. Coincidentally, I have been looking for the optimal place to locate a power socket for heated clothing, accessories and the battery charger port.

Picked up a Gerbing socket/plug assembly, did some Dremel work on the threads and a chrome washer (soon to be gold) and viola, great improvement in looks and functionality. Also took a red ink pen to the silver Corbin stitched logo to bring it into line with the bike.
