yup. Stock tank with the original paint. It has some small chips when you get really close but overall it looks great

How did you lower the front end? Just side it down on the fork tubes?

Hmm I think I've seen this done. You either get the complication of integrating new forks or cutting down the springs/:

I don't think so.
If you look at the photos, the forks are sticking through the triple tree by about 40mm, which would lower the front of the bike.

So he just lowered the forks through the triple tree?
