    Looks tidy, not sure I'd want the speed of the bird without the bubble to hide in though :eek:

    When the fairings come off of 90s / 00s bikes, people often make stylistic mistakes street-fighting them, but I really like this one, very cool.

    Looks like an absolute weapon. Not a fan of the headlamp though.

    I highly recommend a reshaped recovered seat, makes life much more pleasant when you're not sliding around the stock plank.

    The stock is a rubber type covering and is very grippy, i haven't slid back at all, unlike most other bikes I have had that were slippy vinyl.

    On the subject of the headlight, I like it and hate what just about everyone else does and fit small twin lights

    I found the total opposite kept moving about on the stock seat.

    Maybe it was recovered then at some point. for now its fine, but do like the look of the ones with the higher back.

    Those brakes looks meaty!

    Whats going on with the black rear inner part of the spokes? Just brake dust?

    No, the wheels go from black to red. it has a small amount of metal flake in it also.

    Looks tidy does that, thinking about making mine a naked as the nose fairing on my 'bird is getting a bit rough. What's the swingarm off, afaik the standard arm doesn't have bobbins. Unless they've been added after.

    That look really tidy apart from the nasty generic Chinese headlamp which doesn't suit it at all. A single round lamp would be much better IMO.

    My thought exactly. Or a hornet lamp and enclosure.
