That looks tough Thom!! I can't see any damage in the pics though, but i doubt a VN would make much damage to a Customline of all things, damn tough those things!!  :)

Filters are the hard part trying to work something out without changing the look, the best I've come up with is to sandwich a filter between the bottom of the trumpets and the tops of the throttle bodies

Did some work on the bonnet with my old man today, removed the rear brace for repair then started heat shrinking some low spots in the bonnet after attacking it with paint stripper<br />utejubu9.jpg<br />e4uvedy6.jpg<br />seqyheqy.jpg<br />udytasat.jpg
