Sounds like no voltage from the charging system. check for poor connections especially ground check output from alternator and check regulator thats all there is to it

Front brakes failed


Is this using stock brake lines?  You could have kinked the metal tubing and possibly broke it when you straigthened it out.  I would suggest getting someone to help who knows what they're doing on brakes... pretty dangerous if you make a mistake.  With that said, the system *is* pretty darn simple.  The master cylinder is a pump and the caliper is the actuator.  If you have the reservoir filled with the correct fluid and the system has been bled properly, meaning no air in the lines, then unless it is leaking there is no reason you won't have brakes, unless the seals in the master are blown out.  
If you need to start over... get a master cylinder seal kit, a caliper seal kit, and a bottle of the correct fluid from the dealer.  Both kits are around $20 and since your bike is 10 years old it wouldnt hurt to replace the seals.  Rebuild the master and the caliper according to the service manual instructions.  Also make sure you fully inspect the brake line to make sure you didnt kink it.

2004 Wide Glide electrical issue's


You might have a bad sensor, The bank angle sensor turns off the ignition system when it THINKS the bike is leaning over 55 degrees. . The sensor is located behind the electrical panel and can be checked with a magnet. Electrical probelms can be a *****. Start by checking your charging system. Put a voltmeter on your battery. It should read about 12.5. Turn the engine on and the reading should increase to about 13.5. If it decreases, its the regulator or stator.
I had a bad crank position sensor on my wideglide that took me hours to run down. Good luck. Let me know what you find

Electrical problems and **** in the gas tank can cause misfires. It sounds more electrical in your case. But draining and flushing the gas tank is a cheap fix. Could also be a coil or spark plug problem. Check for a faulty, fouled or cracked plug, check for a good spark, check the coil for carbon tracking. Check the plug wire connections too and the wires.

Battery draining down setting in the garage.


You've got something that's pulling from the battery. It could be as simple as a loose connection or bare wire touching the frame, it could also be a bad relay, but this would generally show when testing for an open circuit. Check any added electrical devices. Also, keep in mind that the system on a Harley doesn't charge the battery, it only keeps it topped at where it's at. So, if you have a half charge on the battery, you can ride to Hawaii and back, and you'll still only have a half charged battery. This is where a battery tender comes in helpful for garage time. I'm afraid you're just going to have to start tracing wires. I ride a 95 Softail, did a harness trace last winter while waiting for new paint, and was amazed at the amount of wear the wires had. Ended up running about 30 feet of new wire to replace weak, worn, and exposed.

Sounds like a knackered / flat battery. Check the battery, look at the terminals and make sure the wires to the battery are connected properly. If the battery is good then check your charging circuit.
