Thank you for your kind words, guys πŸ‘πŸ» I had to transfer the pics to my laptop and upload from there as it still won’t let me upload from my iPad any more?

The build is actually complete now but I’m waiting for some better weather to take some pics outside πŸ‘πŸ»

I will get around to taking some better outdoor pics when the weather is better, but here are the final stages of my build.

Some of the final additions to the model were quite fiddly, like the cable/wire from the throttle to the underside of the tank...and its worth marking up your wiring from the rear fender with labels to remind you which is which as I seem to have wired up the tail light to the right hand indicator Laugh
I would like to add the panniers but dont really want the sissy bar...so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

I think the only change I would make if I started again would be to make the Harley logo on the tank a little bolder as from some angles it disappears as the colour is too close to the tank.

Lovely job, well done on being different and choosing a great colour BigGrin I would agree with you about the Harley decals needing to stand out more.
