So, no feedback on the idea of a seat with this kind of coloring?



with this kind of stitching:

If possible I'd go with the chair's coloring AND stitching...old fashioned style

Really depends on your tank. Its the combo that makes or breaks it.. Green with those stiches is a -cant go wrong- i guess, but just my .02
Stock tank fo sho btw, those harley tanks are a waste of metal. (as are harleys :))

If anyone stumbles on a source for such a material, please send it my way.  I'm having difficulty finding 'outdoor rated' leather in the finish seen above.

Also, I actually own two H-Ds.  But I think both would likely get some level of approval in this crowd.  Not much chrome to be found on either.

Here's my Sportster cafe build thread:  http://xlforum.net/vbportal/forums/showthread.php?t=594781

It pretty much looks like this now.  It's run a 12.9 at 102mph in the 1/4 before the cafe conversion, with a bad, heavy pilot aboard. 



I'd really like to put a proper tail on it, but since I'm not willing to cut the frame on this bike, my options are limited.  The best option is the Airtech Streamlining XLCS tail seen here:





A low-res, and out-of-date photo of my Dyna is here.  I've changed a few things since the pic was taken years ago, most notably a black 2-1 Thunderheader exhaust, and smoked turn signal lenses, but you get the idea.  I consider the Dyna basically 'done' except that I may remove the mirrors, put on slightly lower, narrower flat track riser bars, and a low profile, smoked tailight, but those are minor details.  I took this motor from 62rwhp to 110rwhp.  Those numbers on the tank are from when I used to ride it to the track for test & tune nights.  My best run was about a 12.3 @ 111mph (also with fat old me in the saddle) before the pipe swap and ignition upgrade. 



Here's an MS Excel plotted graph of my various dyno runs, over a few years of engine modifications.  If you're an H-D guy who wants details of components of each stage, just let me know.  The only one that's NOT my actual bike is the green dotted line, but I put it in there as a comparision to what many H-D owner do as their first step.



I hope this satisfies the request.   ;)
