well kev the paint so far is primer red and gloss black trim so I'll probably stick to that theme...we'll see as for the shifter I would like to keep it where it is and I think I can make it work without modifying the tank by adding a wrap of leather to the top bar as a shim and it will give it that harley dash look

again Thanks guys, sometimes I'm my own worst critic cuz when I look at it I see all the flaws in my tape lines.
Here it is mounted on the bike also its a little hard too see but I found a front brake that will work on this fork .
