Any one interested in another low quality Paint hack job?

With NoRiders' mention of modding the original side covers I couldn't help but experiment a little. I took some stock photos and played around for a few minutes. Nothing is ever final, but I like where the idea is heading



I have got to stop thinking about paint and start welding...  :-[

I'm digging that. What if the sidecovers became a part of the seat itself? Maybe bring the bottom most line up a couple inches, and eliminate the red/blue line along the bottom of the seat where it separates the sidecover and fairing?

I like that a lot. It would give you room to triangulate the sub frame and keep the frame work hidden

x2 to everything. I was actually just working on blending the side cover and seat together as well. I like the way you guys think.

And anything to help cover my excuse of welding will be nice

It looks awesome! just wondering how would you fit the side covers, but I really dig the style.

That looks great, I would just round the side cover corners a bit.

Or go with something inspired by the 1100R's 



It would need to be modified to work with that seat and smaller covers, but might work.

I love it. I'm definitely taking a lot of inspiration from the 1100Rs.

I may even experiment with some fiberglass and join the side panels and seat pan together like some of the airtech units.
