I like it..!
Generally speaking, "slowly" coming together is better than "quickly" coming together. Mistakes happen when you go fast, and you end up going backwards. Not always, not everyone, but generally speaking. :wink:

Trying to leave everything in "as found condition", true basket case, bare frame with all parts in boxes. Only cleaning, gaskets, seals; etc. Motor has been rebuilt but no bead blasting or polishing. This is a numbers matching bike. Frame, motor, hardware and trans all original as shipped from factory per HD achieves. My first Panhead and wanting to try and keep all original. That's why it's a slow process.

Love that red and white paint scheme on those. Seen many with solid color fenders. Is that original paint?

If you're going for a stock look, the heads should be plain aluminum. Or you could go for "as found"...

64s would not have had 2 tone fenders.
