Reading the forum rules, I think this is ok to post a link:

I'm kind of shooting for something like the CB750 that LHC built, only focusing more on function than form. If you look closely at that pretty machine...it has no rear brake! but the reversible rear wheel to change gearing is certainly a different take on the two-sprocket idea (I almost did dual sprockets on my TW).

I think tonight I'm going to try taking some pictures of the mostly torn-apart VX. Last night the exhaust came in, and the DT100 rear fender as well. Looks like I have some hammering and welding to do!

I'm still debating on either picking up a set of crash bars from ebay to modify, or custom-building my own crashbar/skidplate (my manual tubing bender sucks so not looking forward to that).

I kind of prefer the more raw appeal of the first edition:

I do like the two-into-one exhaust better on the re-do though.

UPDATE: Started a build thread.
