very cool man

I like the 6gal tanks. and the low bars.
Those late valve covers are looking good
swb - lwb convert?

Your /5 appears ready for a ride report.

Not much can be gleaned from your profile... what part of the country are you in?

He bought the bike from Boxers by Bruce, so he is in the Dallas-Ft Worth area.

We don't have a good view of the rear fender 'cause of the bags and I can't tell if it is SWB or LWB (though I suspect SWB).

Very nice!

Congratulations!
I do like Texas... lots of big sweepers, 75mph speed limits. Great place for an Airhead...
