Thanks, and yes, the rear fender of this bike is what gives this bike the looks and style. I've seen a lot that have removed everything off the fender and plugged the holes and side mounted everything for a cleaner look. But that's been done already. Plus Im not keen to have the tail light to one side only. Just doesn't look right to me. Like you said, it's each to their own...
This is what I did instead and fabricated my own tail light assembly by using the existing license plate post and back plate to mount the after market light and also used the old OEM round reflector brackets from the old tail light to mount the diamond lights for turn sigs....

It is beautiful but I still can't get on with the ape hangers. A lovely work of art none-the-less. Well played that man.

Not everyone are into apes, but I do change-out handlebars from time to time. Here's a couple of pics with a more pullback bars. I bought them at a local m/c salvage years ago. I think they were from a yamaha or a honda.

Yes, those bars are relaxed and handling at ease. But sometimes the pullback on them is bit much. I found that the OEM bars that I cut 1 7/8 inches off at each end is best for me. I like my arms fully extended when I ride. That is why I also like the ape hangers and for badass style of riding. What if??? 184121345

Have to admit I like them much better but either way it's a really nice bike and you've certainly stamped your own mark on it.

Done the same mod on a set of VL bars,cut 2" off each end,more comfortable.
