Downsized the front end of the harley a bit today

I finally got around to downsizing the massive front end of the electraglide today,, gave it more a of a street glide look. I like the sleeker smaller style the factory turn signal bar and spot lamps just never did it for me. I also got rid of the large bug antennae mirrors and added the fairing mount mirrors while I had the front fairing off.

here's some before and afters shots.

Nice couch!

You should take those reflectors off the frame down tubes, unless they leave ugly mounting bosses.

I like the seat, looks comfy. Although I like the smaller fender, how will it look on the bike considering everything else is big and chunky?
