Ha, I usually hate rectangle lights but it suits this bike well. Looking forward to more of course.

I barely pull in my driveway from the trip and you've already got a front end on it.  !    Sweet.

Had a little convo with Race Tech.  I could go as high as .52kg/mm on springs in these forks.  Stock is .36kg/mm.  We'll see how it acts with weight and go from there.  Regardless, I feel pretty good that we'll find a match with rake and trail considerations.

That front end looks like it has a ton of travel, do you have to limit it with a spacer or something or does it not matter? Btw it also looks fantastic on that frame.

  I imagine there will be enough travel to hit the frame to floor if I were to jump it, but running on the street will just waste most of what it has available. As long as Race Tech has the right springs, these forks should work well.  I have a VZ800 front end to swap in, if this setup doesn't work.

I didn't take any glorious actions shots, but man you should've seen me getting all the Bondo off this frame.  Fuck that 70s smoothed out look.  I learned an old body shop trick with removing paint and bondo, which is to get a fan tip for a torch and go apeshit with a scraper and stiff wire brush.  It weakens the Bondo so you can scrape it off, or brush it off.  Thick areas require a few passes.  Some of it drops in flames.  Then clean up the mess on the floor with a broom.

Sweet, I got a whole Ghia worth of Bondo to strip off. This will be useful.

Subscribed.
I see the bones of the Deviant Hellride in the background. Is she supplying the lump for this girl?
