    Looks good mate, I just have 2 questions and a comment;
    What is your seat covering made out of?
    What is the new tank you're putting on?

    I live in Queensland so it's business as usual up here and the weather is too good to start a build, we're all out riding... Haha

    1.  Black Duct Tape (as one does!) - its a king/queen that I made over a stock seat base and have yet to get it professionally upholstered - Its bloody hard to find a good quality shop that knows what they are doing.

    2.  I scored a 883/1200 Custom 4.5 gallon tank with a small dent which I will fit as I like the wider chopper look over the 12 litre peanut one.  On the plus side is the EFI fuel pump is a simple plug and play to swap over, which is a total PITA otherwise.  Bloody paint is not cheap though as I'm doing a Flake / Candy look and buggered if the paint alone will cost a few hundred. 

    Friggin northerners!  Half my team is off work today due to bloody Ekka day!  and its that damn self righteous we are living in the warm smug look they all have too!  Sigh...

    New set of tins for the softail, just figuring how to get them to the painter when we can’t travel or even get packing material from Bunnings.

    FARK thats a small tank - will look good though!  I like the way they integrate the lift into the tank rather than the aftermarket extensions.

    Yeah that’s my only concern! I figure I’ll get 60-70k from a tank :)

    There’s also mounting holes on the side bracket for the ignition switch and key, clean and tidy!

    It is a completely different bike now and pulls real hard. Runs 80hp now with my Cobra Speedster pipes.

    Cost about $1200 and installed it myself over a weekend. Tuned it in with an FP3 tuner

    I decided to make my own external breather kit to suit my TRASK assault air cleaner.  Keep all that shitty blow-by from being dumped back into the air cleaner and then heads.
    TRASK sell one, but they want stupid money for it (2 breather bolts, 2 banjo fittings and some plastic hose) + shipping from the US made it AU $400.  Fark that.
    So using AN04 fittings, braided stainless hose, some custom machined aluminium spacers and a small vented catch can which catches the watery oil shit, mounted on a custom stand off mount on the cam cover.
    This is what i ended up with.
