Looks very nice. Had a strange thought on it though. Would you consider a 'dirty' tan style exhaust wrap, at least on the headers, to bring the colouring together?

Or ignore me. It wouldn't be the first time  :P

Very nice build, I have to agree with the sugestion to wrap the headers, would be the icing on the cake.

I had always associated header wraps as a means of covering up corrosion and disfigurement. Since I found a really clean pair of CB450 headers, it makes for one continuous unblemished exhaust sweep that resembles some of the vintage British bikes of yesteryear. That's sort of the look I was shooting for...

If you wrap those I will come to your house with a big stick and beat you with it
unplug the connectors from the harness and multimeter the shit out of them

Bars are flat M from Hotwing Glass. Grips are from POSH. I had to trim an inch or so off the bar ends to get the shortish grips to butt up close to the controls. Why not move the controls out? Before I located the controls and the cabling to them I was planning on a different set of grips...longer. So it was easier to trim a little off the tips of the bars to accommodate the POSH grips.
