Yes mate :) including the power commander.
Good job.

Mate! That looks brilliant! The empty space and hidden electrical stuff looks so Right. Love it (apart from that hideous oversize number plate. Not much you can do about that, though).

Thanks mate! A lot of work has been put into this bike and i'm quite happy with the outcome. Yeah, I agree with you the number plate is huge.

Some modifications that have been extremely useful are:
  • Changed all bulbs to LED (headlight, brake lamp, indicators). Great visibility
     during nights!
  • Adjustable brake and clutch levers. Night and day difference
  • Hydraulic brake lever
  • Custom seat. Fits two "thin" persons.
  • PC5, air filter setup, SS full exhaust and ngk sparkplug/cap. Much more responsive and better torque
  • Lowered handlebars and new triple clamp

Attached some picture on how the bike looked when I first bought it vs now. Before and after :)

I put a muffler shield on my HD XL muffler. It will cover the goop from the bottom of my boots. With an air gap under the shield, my boots should do less melting. It's a stock Harley shield for my muffler.

Got out for a 20 minute ride. It wasn't too cold and the ice had melted.
