Willie,

Beautiful, just beautiful.

Tell me about the engraving on the intake cover.  And what did you use to get the flat black finish on the bits, like the oil filter mounting.

Hey Geo,
The black flat finish is just stock harley parts. Any powder coater can do the same. Thanks for the kind words.

Awesome job Willie. The Stude in the background for when you get old and need a little more support when you're going fast?

Willie,

Looks great..

A front fender might be appreciated if it runs on the salt...

Post the dyno sheet when you have it..any predictions?  160hp?

There was some comments about the pipes being to close to Erics foot. Even though there is no rule about that, the pipes according to the rulebook are absolutely legal. But Eric called Tom Evans and Tom said that it would probably be a good idea to move the pipes away from Erics foot so that he wouldn't get hasseled when he went through tech. So I moved the front pipe forward 3 1/2 inches, as you can see in the pics. I should have built the pipes on the build diaries but I didn't. When I build the rear pipe I will send some pictures. I didn't do the paint work. A friend of Eric's named Steve Tibbetts painted the tank and fender. Everything else on the bike was powder coated. Thanks for all the kind words.
