I really like the way the bars and the integrated rear rack work in the overall effect. This looks to be a really comfortable and practical custom bike. Sharp.

Is the rack one-piece, or does the chrome section adjust?

I don't mean to pick Sled, but have you considered vinyl-dying the seat to complete the look?

I just put a checkerboard pattern on a toolbox with dye, and no doubt with your skills, you'd do an even better job.
