I agree with AZ/Bill put the colts back on, only mount them on the handle bars pointing forward. Nice to have good friends huh Wavy? Looks great.
Forget the Colts. Bladder the OE "tank" instead... tossing that bit-O-vintage-style is a shame. The bike in it's original config is so Buck Rogers it's beautiful!

Whatever... the bike is classic either way. Nice to have it up and running!
I love everything, what a treasure, and the cap guns now that is the Cats Meow. Have fun, and congrats on a neat job. Dave
