I bought this bike as a wreck and decided to slim it down not really knowing how it would end up. First to go was the radiator. Replaced with a custom dual core. Always disliked the twin headlights so sourced a single headlight and shoe-horned it into the cowling along with the speedo and tach. The ignition had to be moved so found a spot just behind the oil container. I chose the seat from a 2019 HD Livewire and fabricated the framework to support it. That meant I needed different shaped sidecovers which I fabricated with an angular theme to match the custom front guard. Original headers had to go. Built these 1' 3/4 diameter beauties. I had to move the rear brake reservoir away from the heat zone. New rear shocks and a custom tail tidy. Motogadget front indicators fitted to handlebar ends.

I'm looking for a second hand Ozclaw to cover the expansion bottle and air filter.

Well that ain't bad at all. I've seen all kinds of chopped up bikes and most guys are awful proud of them. I look at them and think it's chit but being polite I say nothing. So when i say that ain't bad I mean I like it. That is what I call a trim fat girl.:sneaky:😂 She's still a little thick but sexy as heck.

Now that is one beautifully done bike - simply gorgeous :cool::cool::cool:
Thanks Razman.
I knew that I wanted to remove some bulk but I didn't know exactly where I was heading.
I'm very happy with the end result, especially finding a seat that would marry up to the tank.
I originally ordered a set of headers from Paul Bryant but he let me down so I ended up making my own.
