    Very nice . Look forward to some updates as the miles rack up Dave. A pleasant change to hear of a dealership that accomodates a customers requests .I take it the mods you've done won't affect the warranty ? Dealers here are notoriously fickle "sorry sir, thats not covered."

    Good question. Nope. This dealer did all this work, happily got me S&S air intake and mufflers, V&H headers, PV Dynojet tune..... and they stand behind it with full H-D warranty. And was happy to install top-quality USA-made parts they had never seen before i.e. Super Shox, Patriot fork springs, Freedom Shield screen.

    Why? ''Well, these are obviously good bits, and you are spending plenty with us...no issue.'' Which is why i travelled 200 miles from home to buy this bike from a non-Melbourne dealer, because the big city dealerships here are notorious, shall we say.

    The dealer I bought this off is run by a family of motorcycle enthusiasts, not a venture capital/car-franchise group. And the male members of the family ride and work on Pans and Shovels. We were once on a Shovel run up near them maybe 7-8 years ago and we turned up to the shop on our old kickstart leakers because a couple of the guys had issues, needed parts, etc. The dealer principal loaned one of us a battery to get home, got his mechanic to sort out other shit on another bike for free. I have a very long memory, and I told the owner last week exactly why I was buying a bike and spending a LOT with him. He was gratified. So was I. They did me a great deal overall. And I got a nice discount without even asking.

    Ha ha ha ha ha!!! To paraphrase our 1980s local hero down here, Mick 'Crocodile' Dundee: ''That's not green - THIS was GREEN!!''

    Thanks dave. I assume they used the road glides spacers??
    I want to change the front wheel on the street glide, to the one you have.

    They used ''front wheel install kit 41454-08B'' to make that 2011/12 wheel fit my 2019. That kit comprises ABS bearings and spacers (rear wheel ''install kit'' was 41453-08C)
