Amazing, but I'm not surprised.

Yeah, angel eyes are way tacky. Leave them as they are: lights that work and look like lights.

Very jealous!!!

haha thanks mike. glad you like it.


the last piece of the puzzle will be my custom triple clamp. similar to the 600rr one but a little nicer damper integration. just gotta bug the machinist to get it done

Damn... you sexy bitch!

ok so it was a lie.... did a lot of custom work over the winter. built a special damper mount to stick an ohlins underneath the front, designed and built my own bar switches, reservoir mounts, internal fairing stay, got some different rearsets and tidied up the rear brake. just small subtleties that i think make the bike. also did a set of attack triples to dial in the geometry.
