    A true work of art. I am truly envious. Can’t wait to see the finished product.

    Been a while since I last posted but other, more pressing issues have got in the way!

    Finally managed to get the mudguards close to the look I want. Carbon fibre ight be a bit "bling" to some but I think they will work in well with my colour scheme.

    Time to start the final build now :)).....pics to follow as and when

    Despite a few delays my bike is all but finished now...just a flyscreen to make/fit. (yes I know the fuel lines are not connected ;D ...the Lyta style tank on earlier photos somehow didnt look quite right so it now sports a short Manx style tank which is more pleasing to my eye)

    If anyone wants pics of any detail, just yell!

    They are clip-ons...have to that high for my ancient spine, likewise the low footpegs for my lack of flexion :)

    Exactly the reason I bought my new Street Triple to sit alongside my Ducati. I could see the day was coming :scream:

    It would be criminal to have something like that and not ride it, so if you need slightly higher bars then go for it.
