i gotta admit guys . i was expecting to hear two things . people would either love or hate the brown seat . personally i think it helps complete the look . and i expected to hear '' needs skinwalls '' . but that is not gonna happen . . again thanks for all the positive feedback . i can't tell if i am all hyper because my bike is almost done . or i am hopped up on iced tea . me thinks the tea .ROTFLMAO.gif

Looks real good Donnie. I like the brown seat. Works for me. I got the tire you need for the front.
