looks good. Much better than stock.

I grabbed a fistful of throttle and all my worries disappeared.

I have the OEM wires ready to go and know where to mount them but if I maybe honest, I am going to hold off until, umm, should we say something sways me to add that feature. As the one picture shows the plate is extremely reflective(oh did not add it, sorry, lol I used a flash and really showed the plate) and the light really isn't needed, however I am prepared if necessary. And sorry about the indoor Pic's but weather has sucked so far this spring, so did this all inside.

I will be the FIRST to admit that the Customs with no bags nor sissy bars are the cleanness over all but I use my bags and rack during summer rides so much just can't see ever stripping them off. Plus at the moment I am very single and never know when those darn hot little ladies might want a ride on one of our real bikes (Vulcan 900 Custom)

But thank you all for the comments and help, nice to do something by your own hands and have it turn out good and not a hack job for sure !
