Thanks pete, I had to google bulbous, could be the angle, in person it looks quite well, I'll put a diff picture up and see what ya think. I did need it large to fit all the eletronics under. I did take your advise and move the r&r. Thanks for the input.

Get some padding and a cover on the seat and that should tame down the big ass pod look.
She's looking pretty damn good from here!

...and I didn't have to Google "bulbous" ;)

I forgot all about posting a another pic. It may be a couple of weeks before I can get the seat done. Going to Chicago land next weekend to visit the inlaws, hope to catch Modvrockers while I'm there. I've put about 5 mile on the bike today trying to get carbs right. next step carb syn, then go from there. I have to say its running better then I thouht it would without jets.
Thanks Hoosier, I'm liking it!!!



Looking REALLY sharp! Not sure if someone mentioned it yet, but you may prefer the handling with a fork brace on it. I removed the front fender from mine and could definitely tell the difference when the brace went back on.


You cant put a price on awesome.
Totally dig the motorcycle in the living room! You can not be married! haha The bike looks pretty awesome Bruce.

Thanks Autotek, that's is the non smoking, non finished area of the man cave. Wife would beat my ass if I brought a motorcycle up stair's :)

On my GS I used the inner brace from the old front fender for a poor mans fork brace. A Superbrace unit would be much better if you can find one, but this'll do in a pinch. ;)

Lovely project mate, really liking the colour combo alongside the polishing 8)

I'm at a similar stage with my GS750 project, and know how challenging it can be relocating the electrics. Good effort on building your own tail unit too!!! :)

Thanks Guy's, I really need to get some more pictures up. Hoosier, I think I seen you do that on one of your post, I got my old fender and was ready to cut it up, but it cleaned up pretty good so I remounted it.

Thanks Guys
