Some further pics for your enlightenment;

A couple of new side views:



Stripes/Flames inspired by the Africa Twin. hand cut from some old red vinyl i had (hope they stay on). Thought i would add some coulour to the white tank.


the 'Gonad pad' in close up:

Made from racing seat foam - this was to join the gap between the top of the seat and the tank, as this tank is not designed for this bike. Its not perfect, but i'm happy with it for now.

Next is to either test ride (to see if anything falls off) or get front fairing sprayed up. (Test ride i think). :)

Thanks Scott :)

yes its looking a bit evil isnt it :evil:

The bars arent renthall - just a copy, but aluminium and good quality (cost about £10).

They are about 1" wider each side, and there was a bit of fiddling to do with the cables etc to get everything to fit.

They give much better leverage (not that the dom needs it!).

Luckily the exhaust sound matches the look of the bike (a bit loud) :evil:

Could be sneaky and cut a little split in the pipe where it passes just infront of the rear tyre and say it rusted through and now needs replacing. :wink: Sometimes sneaky is good :D

Cheers pal. :) Im very happy - just finishing off front fairing then ready to rock. Its cost me a bit more that i expected, but better than buying a new bike as i know all its quirks.
