To make it looks exactly as it does now.
I knew what I wanted it to look like after seeing pics on the interweb of other peoples builds. I loved the old “50’s” style of the Softail Slim with the fat forks and fat tires. So I went with the FLSS (Screamin’ Eagle 110)
The fairing really changed the look but I’d have to say the fenders really changed it up and made it look bigger. Plus I can ride on wet roads and not be soaked from the knees down immediately. Also not throwing a 30′ rooster tail in the rain and pissing everybody off that’s riding behind me is a plus.
The whole package. The apes, fairing, fenders, seat and 150 rear tire really looks good on it.
My Brothers always tell me that I could’ve just bought a Street Glide instead of building one. They all say how good it looks now though since it’s finished. Everybody likes it blacked/murdered out.
