Nice mods Dave, Bikes looking good!  Where did you get your lowering bones from and how do you find it to ride? I'm thinking of lowering my back end but was concerned about the ground clearance .
Intruder graphics on the tank looks great! did you get them made or done yourself.

Got the bones from the USA via ebay. As I'm not allowed to ride at the moment I did take it round some lonely country lanes early last Sunday morning when everyone was asleep just to try it and found the ground clearance obviously lower but no problems getting round tight corners. I deffo need my pullback risers fitted for a more comfortable laid back position and to help better half ride it now she has sold her bike. As for the Intruder graphics my better half and myself have started our own business (only in our spare time at the moment) making graphics for vehicles, home decor etc. Thanks for the comment Simbo.

Bought it with the riders back rest already fitted. Just need to fit my risers so I can make full use of it on long trips.

Finally got round to doing my latest mod on the old girl. Put some 4" pullback risers on for a better riding position after I lowered the back end. Took her out for a 50 mile ride and found it just right. Cornering is fine with the lowered back round some tight bends and on the straight you can just chill with your back firmly gripped in to the riders backrest. Rerouted the original cables which saved buying extented cables. Will get some photos put on here tomorrow as the one who should be obeyed as told me I'm now going shopping. Yes now coming my dearest
