Holy long exhaust pipes Batman!
Nice ride once you get everything sorted out. Those carbs can be a major dollar to fix. I flipped an 1100 that had the single carb/manifold conversion and it was a nice upgrade.
The standards had a large weight behind the headlight and mounted on the forks. It was there to compensate for the lack of weight of the fairings found on the Interstates and Aspencades. It is something I would have in place if I was running it as a standard.
++I flipped models, the standard doesn't have the weight the Interstate and Aspencade did, if you run a fairing on a standard the weight helps keep the front end planted. +++
