Now, now, no need for that kind of language..

Seriously though I'm a perfectionist too :lol: took me ages to get the finish I wanted on the swing arm and its still not exactly right.. And as you can see I made a tiny chip in it while it was still drying :oops:

I get really muddy on the other bike so I thought it was a good idea :lol:, they are a little OTT though :D

Just waiting for my stoppers now and the correct stem for my fat boy bars :)

I use u.s.e posts on all my bikes and I have one with a ladys saddle on so when the mrs wants a bike, she just swaps the post and takes her pick.
the saddle looks just like the one you have on there :?
