I just read through your build. Good looking bike man! The rear fender sticks out a bit, considered bobbing it?


Are those the stock rear shocks? How did you go about shortening the forks?

Thanks, I have considered bobbing it, but I really like it, it looks better in real life.

yeah, stock shocks.  and as for the forks, I just lowered the triple tree down about 1"

something nasty about blacked out rims and exhaust!  I am choosing to go with blacked out comstars on my CB400T.  Nice Bike Pablohoney.  Definintly black those rims!

Keep at it.. no one builds Brats like the Japanese. But you may be on to something. Conditional comments are just a polite way to help you in the right direction  remember that

Bike looks great!
