I started googling, forum searching and ebay surfing for more info and parts resources. i had to be realistic with my somewhat limited mechanical skills; some of the mods will require a metalworker/fabricator. Most of the build will be put together on a skimpy budget with extry elbow grease and lotsa creativity. One of the first search results led me to this YouTube vid:

It has a great stance and simplicity about it. I bought a similar (maybe the same) set of Dunstall style mufflers as the bike in the vid above for $60.00 on ebay. I tried a set of clubmans in place of the euro low bars but still wanted to lower the profile up front. Clip ons should do the trick, back to the internet to search. Prices were all over the place for these, but I found a set for what seemed to be nice quality for the buck. Search eBay for: CLIP ONS 35MM DUNSTALL” or find the seller, “250champ” ($75.00 set)

For a more expensive option, a guy could use these: http://www.woodcraft-cfm.com/Scripts...dproduct=17773



I removed the stock headlight ears 'n' tubes and got a $13.00 set-o-brackets on ebay. They’re mounted as low as possible.

Here's the bike with clip ons, new headlight brackets, no gauges and shorty mufflers.
