Purchased some faux ostrich skin for the sides. Turned out well.

Twolane - I don't need a Switchblade either but, after lusting after one for 8 years my wife finally said 'uncle' and now it is my mission in life to get it just so.

It's gorgeous BE.  Really is.  This is one of the few models I lust after.  So it's a dangerous thing when new activity is seen in this thread.

Yes.  Arriving sometime Saturday middle of the day Saturday.  Looks like we'll be a decent crowd.

Started a separate post on this but thought I would include one photo and the link here. Technically not an improvement to the bike, but certainly an outgrowth of the Switchblade.

Stopped by the leather shop today and the tops of the saddlebags are done. Photo below of both tops. Each top is about 20" wide by 10 tall.

Side angle showing some of the depth of the work. Simply outstanding!

...Jason Pate the artist!

He is a superbly gifted artist and craftsman.  You don't find that combination every day.

Buy Early,

Just saw this thread and all I can say is WOW!  Outstanding attention to details there!  Can't wait to see the finished project (OK, that's a joke, I know you'll never be finished).  Keep the pictures coming.  I absolutely love what you're doing with the blade!

Buffy turned me on to the HD bar/shield coins with the adhesive on the back and I amped it up adding the red paint on the bar/shield. Have found several spots where they add just that bit of detail I am looking for. Got a set of the fluted front and rear axle covers and they had a perfect blank spot to add the coin. Front first.

Rear axle cover with coin. These turned out nicer than planned and add some visual detail. The little brushed aluminum arrangement above the chrome swingarm is the lower rub guard for the saddle bags. Found that a chrome rocker box bolt cover fit nice on the nut on the rear end of the assembly. Gives it that finished look.
