A metal working friend is helping me fab up a proper skid plate and small rear rack with grab handles. Glad you all like it. Still go'n through the first tank of gas. I'm curious what kinda range I'll get.

Tail`rack

It's a combination luggage plate for the 625smc, some 1" aluminum flat stock & some touratech bottle holders I had lying around. Added some backcountry ski straps and soft grab rails. Holds the tool kit nicely. Carries extra gas, water, oil, or some Kettle One. The bike is gett'n about 250mi +/- out of a tank. I've put over 3500mi on since the conversion without mishap, runs stronger than it ever has. -B

The meat...
Great looking paint and breathing kit. The rack mounted rubber grip is also innovative. But I thought SMCs have 5" rear rims and the wider SMC swing arm?!

cockpit

Pretty basic. gps and small Pelican case(1020series) mounted to a ram plate and arm. EXC master cylinder. Rtt steering damper w/ remote. High risers and currently mounted in the offset postion. This setup seems to have increased comfort over longer rides. -B
