Very nice! Love the colors you picked. I'd never pick that myself, but it's sharp.

What kind of handlebars are those? And what size mikunis with what jets did you put on there
Bars are flat M's with about an inch and a quarter removed from each end. Mikunis are VM32's. Set up that seems to work the best (so far) is 140 main; 40 pilot; needle 6dh7 with clip on the bottom (5th position), 3.0 slide.

Thanks...the maroon is a House of Color formula they call "Maltese Maroon". The faux leather used on the seat is called "Saddle". I got it from a theater seating manufacture (Fortress Seating). It will darken over time which is fine with me.

Sorted the charging problem by replacing stator. No more expensive premature LI battery deaths. I took her for an extended ride on Sunday, stopping here and there to snap a pic or two. Not sure how to aggregate them all into one post, so I'll just do separate ones. Starting with this...

This makes me miss my 500T quite a bit... Well done man.
  .. I love those damn handlebars..  I want to build a bike around those bars.
