    That is really nice looking! I like that you still incorporated the twin pipes. Did you do the fabrication yourself? Can post some additional pictures and maybe talk a little about how this project came to fruition? Nice work!!

    Rally.

    Nice work it looks great.
    I realy like how you've done the rack.

    I'm working on a similar project but the tank I'm building is a one piece ally tank that takes the place of the subframe, it'll look similar to the 690rr rear tank.

    Im still undecided on if/how I'll go about doing the twin exhaust.

    It would be realy nice of you if you could post some more pics and maybe some shots of your header layout.


    Thanks

    bansheeman,

    Do you like the windshieild spoiler? Is it a MRA X-Creen?
    Thinking about bying one.

    Is the windshield shorted or any other mods done to it?
    What's your length? Just want to know if it is ok for me, 184cm.

    Nice lookin bike, but if you are ever going to go in mud, I would get rid of the front cross over brake line. Disaster waiting to happen !
