Close. Same company, same cc but V-Twin.

VTX 1800R with a Harley Street Glide fairing (8 speakers and amp, great stereo), 4 piece Ultimate seats and custom fenders and fibre glass bags. Over 8 feet long and yes....heavy. No reverse but plenty of forward 

Oxblood leather interior, probably with oatmeal carpet.  No bumpers or side deco.  Raydyot aluminum racing mirrors on the fenders and (probably) leather hood straps.

I believe the largest tire that can fit in back is a 195, Al.  Going for Vredestein SportTrac 5s on Stan’s recommendation.  Wilwood disk brakes on all four wheels.

Still working on the wheel choice, but leaning toward color matched steelies with Beck hubcaps.

Good call, Lane.

My JPS has the mirrors out on the fenders, about 6" in front of the windshield posts. I hated them there when I got the car, but they grew on me the entire time I had the car. They were super functional out there, and looked really cool.

If I built again, I'd get them mounted in the same place.

I second Stan's recommend on those Vreds. I didn't know much about tires but I sure like mine after one year of driving on them. Congrats on your car's progress, Lane. It's going to be a winner big time. Sure must be nice to specify what you want. 

Latest update from the Marvelous Mr. Hines: "Drip rail fabrication and installation.  May not look like a lot but its nearly 2 weeks worth of work to do a proper drip edge/rain gutter.  Driver side is done, passenger side will be done middle of next week."

I have to agree that - at least at first glance - it doesn't look like a lot, but when you take a closer look at the work you can see the attention to detail, particularly at the leading end.  The body surface looks almost ready for paint and most of the interior panels are in.
