Well as you can see my bike has had a few mod... Over the winter looking at flame levers and mirrors, re do the saddle and wire wheels, I'm sure I'll find other things to do LOL

I knd of like the front guard, looks unfinished but I like it all the same. May look a little better if polished or sprayed black but I don't think it would take much for her to look a real part of the beasty.

The fender is mirror polished stainless at present. I must admit I did think about painting it black... Looks like time to get onto photoshop to see what it would look like... Thanks for the comments Guys

looks good with the extended girders matey. Pity you could'nt get a front wheel to match the back one but seeing as you are wanted spoked one's then it probably wont stop there long eh?
I'm surmising that you'll be using a stock suzuki back wheel with possibly a wider rim so I wonder if you can find a supplier of a spoked front to match the forks also as they obviously are'nt stock?

The pipes were custom made to match the frame and to say they are loud (even with the baffles in) is an understatement... Sweet though..  

The wheels will hopefully match by the end of the winter (not by magic unfortunately)  I'm not a fan of fat rear ends,, classic looks never age

A stock wheel off a VL or such should do the job then Graeme eh? Then you can get a hub from a chopper suppliers to fit you width of fork etc...

Give it a go, you get used to it quickly.. just don't hit to many pot hole and bumps or you'll want to piss.. if that happens get a springer saddle or a nappy lol!

I run struts on mine so I KNOW a hardtail isn't as bad as that.

 Its just time really. All I own is my sled, I need to get something else to ride first
