Man, you work quick! Beautiful! Everything you've done!

As it sits, it reminds me of the Lotus F1 car from the same era ...


Nice work!

Cheers mate. It has really nice lines that match the tank well.

so after brain storming a lil over a few beers was wanting to do something with my stock pegs. im not really tall so where the stock pegs are seem to fit me. but wanted a lil cooler look . so i had a pair of gsxr 750 pegs laying around and messed with them a lil and this is what i came up with . still not sure if i want to go this way ? what do you think?

Very cool bike, I dig the frame gussets. What kind of paint did you use on the motor? Is that a regular wrinkle finish paint? Any special prep work before painting?

I like this a lot. I am not normally a fan of mags, but those remind me of the wheels on my BMX bike as a kid. Any chance you are going to run red knobbies? ;)

I don't know about the peg placement, it looks like your bars are pretty low. You may want to rethink that. A few mins sitting on it in the garage may feel OK, but then when you are out riding and hitting bumps, you may regret it.
