My chain drive kit came yesterday and over lunch today I started working on it and got the drive sprocket installed... holy shit man that 1-7/8" nut on the original drive pulley was REALLY on there no way in hell could I break it even with a 3' breaker bar. Had to run out to a nearby pawn shop and buy a pneumatic 1/2" impact wrench.... and that barely got it removed.... geez. I will say one thing... Harley's build quality is absolutely stellar... I've wrenched around on about every major brand and Harley isn't fucking around.

Got My headlight bucket put back together. We've got a new LED headlamp and a rock protector grill installed. Original bucket in a two tone powder coat.

Wow, great work on the powdercoating. I've had an Eastwood powdercoater for 20 years but never really used any trick colours and combinations like you have - very inspiring, thanks.

is that a "hammertone" color?

It is not a hammertone... it's a 10-15% gloss metallic.

Oh and I got the call that my wheels are ready to pickup after work...  got them home and slapped the discs and sprocket on em.

Started fitting the new wheels up... Gotta wait for the new shocks to arrive before I can cut the chain to length but it lines up perfectly.

Nice, very nice. Nothing looks better on a Harley than spoked wheels with alloy rims, in my humble opinion, but surprisingly hardly anyone does it.

I got my new Burly Brand Stiletto shocks installed today. I'll get the chain cut to length tomorrow morning. Pic is with the weight on the shocks... no worries about travel... there'll be no bottoming out now in the turns... (Like we have turns in Illinois... )

Well.. I'll tell you what... it was NOT cheap to do.
