Wow wow wow.... That's bloody sick!!!

Do you think if you bring the headlight a bit lower is better?? Coz my headlight at the same level and it looks too high.
My 2 cent.

Totally agree for the headlight. The picture was taken with the stock head light and I am considering 1 inch smaller the give the more minimal impression which should work well with the theme of the bike! I will experiment with a few bikini fairings but of not happy I will leave them out.

Thanks. It looks like a Harley VRod heahlight, doesn't it?
I have painted the rear shock spring and front brake calipers in red to make them more attractive. How do you think, for your great R65?
Noticed that you will bring the exhausts up to the seat - as per the PS sketch. Dang, that will be hot ass...

Just my 2 .. but I think when it comes to exhaust & mono's .. the 2 into 1 seems to give it more " balance " , and just me .. I just wouldn't want to run the that much heat right under the tank.

Apart from that ... Looking Good

Finally I have an update... After having paint damage on the spring and then being sent to the wrong part of the world, my shock arrived in the mail. Wilber's, a quality bit of kit.

Some small updates... The bike has gone to the fabricators for a few things including a new rear sub frame, custom exhaust, frame braces and some smaller bits.

I also got a fairly large order from motor works UK and one more to come from flat racer. My plan is to have all of the parts and bits I need so when it comes back I can pull it down for paint and re assemble it.











We tested a rear seat/fairing that the fabricator had on another bike and I'm pretty happy with the look of it.

Thanks mate! I'm starting to get pretty pumped as more and more parts roll in. The muffler is from Dime City Cycles. It's the smaller type (I think they have 2 types). The plan is to have them exiting flush out of the rear cowl.
