    Great Harley kit. Well designed. The back to stock is a great PLUS.

    I have this kit on my 2015 Forty Eight. It is a beautiful kit. The execution left a lot to be desired. The kit arrived about two months after ordering. It was shipped all together in a box with little protection. The “Vivid Black” (extra charge) fender was packed unprotected in a plastic bag and the rest of the kit piled on top of it. The gloss finish was destroyed by chafing on the plastic bag. After wet block sanding and buffing, the finish is flawless. The kit comes without instructions. If you are not mechanically inclined, you will need to figure in dealer installation costs. I did get it figured out and installed. I do feel that the end result justified the BS that went along with it. I also feel like the seat should be leather covered instead of vinyl. That would help to justify the cost.
