Awesome build man! Great metal work. I love the looks of the single headlight! I wouldn't go with duals, but that's just my opinion. Keep the pictures coming (non HDR)

Thank you very much.
We did the leveling of the bike quite hard, as I have changed the rear shocks twice, changed the front forks as well.

Thank you. Now I stick with the single headlight, original one. But I will paint the headlight cup to black instead of chrome. That makes the headlight looks not too big to the bike.

I will have the blended photos of the bike until the painting job done. I don't like the rusty color. .
There will be just a few more blended.... Believe me.

Battery housing, it would be underneath the engine:


This 's to secure the number plate:


You are looking at the seat and the seat hump. Those are removable type with some bolts underneath. The bike will have a different look with another seat:


The exhaust cans, will be painted matte black:

No. I don't make that. The lowest level which the gas can freely flow between both side of the tank is the place near the seat. There is always some amount of gas which never been flown to ensure no debris to the carbs (even though My amount is quite significant )

Ok guys, the frame has been painted, so for some others:


The yellow spring of monoshock has been painted red to match with the front (Brembo) calipers.



How does the front end look?
