great look, look forward to seeing the build, just done a similar build and love the finished effect.

I have the chrome version of the pipes, they are LOUD. And check your baffle has wadding as mine come without. Not that it makes much difference!

Hello, thanks for replys guys. 
I had a try with google sketchup and modeled a 3 switch cluster for 1inch bar.
I got original motogadget's housing but did'nt like the idea of 1 switch facing towards the front of the bike.vs800 bobber build 4000325-motogadget-black-housing-control-switch-3-black-push-buttons-78-1-900x900
So i made a 3d file and my co-worker has a 3d printer add those up and you get this:
vs800 bobber build Large_29761587_zQGR
Its made out of PLA and as you can see it needs a bit work to get it smooth and im really surprised how strong that stuff is. You really cant bend / brake it with bare hands.
This is what i generated from sketchup:
vs800 bobber build Large_29761599_aAVh
A bit offtopic too: Can anyone tell me why the hell cant i see any pictures posted in other posts and topics from users? I mean i can read the text and everything but where should be a picture is just blank black space, nohting.
I really want to see others at work but cant see sh*t.
Thanks in advance!

It's probably because they were originally uploaded through photobucket which has now gone kaput through sheer greed. vs800 bobber build 437349

Depends on what browser you use, but Google photobucket fix plugins...

Hello, as you all have noticed that i'm shit at updating my bike build. But, today i got the time and here goes. I have done alot of stuff:
Rear fender welded + brake lights 
Seat spring mountings welded
vs800 bobber build Large_29774931_fcUi
Exhaust mountings done
Got the plate for mounting the handlebar risers
The saddle is 90% complete, just needs a trim piece around it
Everything is torn apart
vs800 bobber build Large_29774915_FByk
Motor before and after painting.
vs800 bobber build Large_29774917_SR2U
vs800 bobber build Large_29774921_oNe3
The side covers will be painted but not black, thats why they are still somewhat chrome.

There is actually a ton of work done but doesnt seem much Very Happy
Heres allmost all the parts painted

vs800 bobber build Large_29774877_mwel
Got the tank sandblasted and i didnt like what i saw:
vs800 bobber build Large_29774875_lARY
vs800 bobber build Large_29774873_l73h
vs800 bobber build Large_29774869_Su5f
This is the color combo i went with
vs800 bobber build Large_29774865_YFo4
vs800 bobber build Large_29774879_eXvB
Got the rear shocks assembled again
vs800 bobber build Large_29774885_hGgm
Untill next time when i hope to show you guys how it sits all together, i have a picture of it but without the paint so no go for now Very Happy

So, i got a lot of work done over the last few days. Not a lot of pics to show but one what i took when i pushed it outside to see the "glitter" in the sun
vs800 bobber build Large_29786425_4SQ4
But it looks like yellow kind of mustardish on pictures.
vs800 bobber build Large_29786427_xXQI
i tired to capture the flake in the sun but it just wont show on picture.

Aaaanyslut, i will get it to electrician tomorrow. I have never used motogadget m-unit so i decided to trust someone who knows what he is doing instead of doing it yourself.

Will update when i get it fully composed, maybe a video for how the new pipes sound (did a lollipop with valve action).
