    I thought I would post this question here rather than on the softail forum. The reason is I dont believe this front end is the original deuce front end. I want to either get a chrome plate that fits beind the headlight that wraps around the forks - like what I've seen on some fat-boys (but I am not sure with this headlight that it is possible) OR dress the wires up with a wrap of some kind but no sure which would look better or which would be easier..

    I need some opinions please...

    Here are a few pictures showing the front end...I orginally took the pictures so I could show my dad the windshield that I had.

    Doesn't look like the original front end for that deuce. Maybe a headwinds headlamp and not stock trees or risers either.

    any idea on the trees or risers?

    what about a place to get some chrome wrapping tape - is this even a real product?

    You can get an aluminized (sort of looks like chrome) tape for wrapping HVAC ducts at Home Depot or Lowe's, but I don't think it will look very good unless used (very) sparingly.

    The aluminum tape would be a bear to get right stuff is a pain to work with
