Great job!

How do you like the mirrors? I'd like to do a similar setup on my S3T

Loose1/Matt:
If you are using the same backing plate (ham can to carb), check it and make sure that the lower left corner of the bracket isn't touching the frame.

That is what happened on two of mine (they both broke) before I got wise to it and used the dremel to cut excess off. Second one stranded me in PA for 5 days last summer!

Hope you're bringing that beauty to Homecoming Matt.

Thanks for all the complements. It's been a long and some what expensive project. The front faring and windshield did come from Dan (nrhs).
The mirrors I can't really comment on yet because I haven't ridden it yet. I have yet to ride this bike since I bought it in Sept. I'm hoping the driving light work well. I start work at 6 AM, so most of the summer I'm driving in the dark in the morning.

I'll check the backing plate on the air cleaner.

The plan is to bring it back home to East Troy in June. The Super Blastard is giving me trouble this year so I'm not sure what other bike I'll be bringing.

Thanks, Matt

That's looking really nice! I really like the combo of the dark gray with the blue wheels.

The mirror and driving lights combo looks really good. The mirrors are a good fit for the bike, and the driving lights blend in as if they were just the original styled turn signals. Usually people mount them on the bike and it makes the front end look a little cluttered but I think you figured that one out by mounting them in place of the turn signals.
