    A OS number board or even just a plate bracket on your tail light would be cool! 8)

    I never thought of that If the front fender keeps giving me trouble
    That was off my mini chopper that I had laying around
    I'm thinking satin paint but still not sure, I'm leaning towards olive green with creme pinstripes

    How about Olive Green with either Red or Gold pinstripes. I dont think cream would compliment the green as well. But thats just me.

    I have a smaller one I was thinking about putting on top of a rear rack. They sell various sizes of those at the local army navy surpluss store here. I had a similar thought for mounting one on each side of a bike like that. Kind of a theme like Pee Wee's Rat Rod. A full decked out cruiser like his but weird stuff on it. like the bullit boxes., and maltese cross mirrors and little dead animals.

    With a matching paint scheme I think those would look great on your bike. It is coming out SOOOOOO nice.

    Looking great man!
    I think the Ammo boxes fit right in.

    Anxiously awaiting the paint and finishing touches.

    I say if anything build teardrop style saddlebags to match the tank. Those ammo boxes just don't do the bike justice.

    Dito!
    On the other hand, those are easy to modify.
    I would try .30 cal boxes insted... they're slimer, more stiled... :D
