Congratulations, and well done for perseverance.
You are certainly not alone - it took me 9 years to get my Cabrio to IVA, and only now, 2 years further on has it been painted.......... And I still have to put it back together again, so it too will have been 11 years to "completion".

How about some photos of your Sportster?
What engine have you installed?
