What if you add a small boxes behind the front plate to keep the wiring in and clean looking ? Paint the back black to hides it even more !

Yes the plan is to build a box behind the plate for all the wiring.  Hadn't thought about it being black though, sounds like a plan.

That is what I did on the Phat Trakka.  I made a box out of carbon fiber to sit between the fork legs and wiring connectors and relays sit in there and up front the race number plate is cut down slightly to fit around 2 small lights.  If I did it again I would use a single HID with angel eyes.

Not much going on at the moment.  Made the box (to house all the connectors that would normally be in the headlight shell) to go behind the front plate and started the bracket to mount it to the forks.

I decided to come back to this section from the dark side (specials forum).  A bit more action over here I think!
Here are my lights mounted, now need to get the front plate done.

 Thought the same way and stop finishing dates after a year LOL Funny thing is as you get to the end of the build your thinking of what you can do better on the next one  ;D

Ha ha, I know the saying 90% done and 50% to go.  The difference between bolting on and painting vs. actually making the parts from scratch is night and day.

Yes, well I am ready for the bolting on stage.  I can see the finished bike in my head, now I am ready for reality.  The pipes are the only time consuming part of the project left to build now. 

And yes I am already thinking of my next project!

Worked on the front plate today and I think this will be a good solution to hide all the electrical connections in the box I have behind the plate.  It looks humongus at the moment but I think it will look better when I get some pinstripes say 12mm in from the edge.  I now have to decide if I am going to use Dzus fasteners or round head cap screws to mount the plate.

This is looking great John! Pinstripes will definitely make it look smaller.
