That tank does have some nice lines. Looks good on there.

Finally found the tank I wanted. I had picked up a Benelli Indian remake turd and was getting so annoyed polishing that piece of crap that I went out and found what I really wanted. It's been done a few times, but I don't care and I really like the lines.



Damn that looks good. I stuck with the Benelli remake and can attest to its issues. Haven't finished fixing them all yet... I really, really wanted a Hageman subframe but couldn't justify the coin. Ended up with a Twigg TT frame - wish I would have just built one myself in the end.

Little things on builds make me happy - the original KZ650SR gas cap still functioning and looking nice with a little scuff and clean for example.

This color is never the same in pictures. Still waiting on spacer, so the chrome headlight surround was addressed. I had picked up a universal emgo bucket after looking at many options to fit the 7" led setup I wanted to use. The brushed surround and black is just what it needed.

Ugh... not looking forward to wiring though.

Running no fenders are cool unless you actually get out and ride. This will also be the only bike in the shed that stops better than it goes. Looking forward to that...

Looking good! Diggin the color something you don't see everyday. Looks like it is close to being finished. I'm with you on the fender. Like the look without it, but I've been caught in the rain to many times to run without one. Good luck with the wiring. I use patience and beer.

And she's a roller! First time I have seen the bike outside in the sun since the week I bought it. Good lord it's low.

Current thoughts are a set of CM drop triples, and a matching rear hagon shock for about a 1" ride height raise.



Now... do I want to drill it for some bars, or keep clipons...
