very nicely detailed 500 build you have there Charles. did you do the seat and panniers? i've often preached about design and visualization in this thread, Charles is presenting an example of those concepts taken to completion. that first V649 in the photo was the moto that went across the TAT, then up the CDT into Canuckistan, only to be turned around by a blizzard in the YT. i had that particular bike upside down in about 6 western states. mini wind screen from a fiberglass mold created from a sectioned Saturn bumper cover, front beak in fiberglass from a mold created from a sectioned KLR rear fender.
