you hit it on the head, don't take away from the gas tank, how about the small fairing from the guzzi 850 lemans

Someone asked me via PM that what wheels did I replace the comstar wheels on my bike.
1. It's really funny that you asked me thru PM then you somehow chosen not to receive PM.
xxx has chosen not to receive private messages or may not be allowed to receive private messages. Therefore you may not send your message to him/her.
If you are trying to send this message to multiple recipients, remove xxxx from the recipient list and send the message again.


2. So I can reply on here: They are original wheels of CX650. Comstar wheels are on CX500 or GL400.

I'll second that.
...although I think I missed the point where the installation of a faitring became an issue...

No. Just some limitation of who eligible for the big bike licenses (A2 license for >175cc bikes).
However, there are still a lot of big bikes.
And next year, there will be no more limitation, A2 is open for all, effective from 01Mar2014.
See the link in my Signature for any question about Vietnam & motorcycle.

I was about to say that as well.
Is there any more info on the CB1000? A write up maybe?
I can see what looks like a ducati 999 complete front end and both wheels and a custom seat unit. Anything else?
Pleeeease?
