    my only real nitpicks: the invader wheels. Stupid chopper wheels that are heavy as fuck. Also the suspension is mostly stock and the thing needs a chain guard, and the guy isn't that good of a painter (the lines by the cap bow out - but I really dig the color scheme)........

    also I don't think it is much of a business model if you spend $12000 building a calling card to sell it for $8k.

    Just out of curiosity, does having the front disc look like Swiss Chees reduce the actual braking surface enough to reduce brake performance?
    I've seen some drilled and or slotted rotors before, but those look a little TOO much.

    meh.....not really sure. I don't think so because a) the average pad temp is cooler, b) the holes are deglazing the pads, c) old honda brakes are so terrible anyway you probably wouldn't notice a miniscule decrease in braking performance. Plus what ever it gave up in braking on one rotor it makes up for on the other.

    nope. seen it before. the sections he removed don't add all that much rigidity into the frame. I have seen yoshimura prepped bikes that had that mod. Personally I would have beefed up the motor mounts since you are now using the engine as a stressed frame and the cb550/750 both use motor plates in the front.

    What is up with the rear brake? No peg to push down on. Maybe it was removed so you can kick start it (so much cooler). No need for brakes anyways.

    well....there aint no fucking way in hell im riding that thing from baltimore, to brooklyn, and back again, with no frame cradle. much less expect to rack up 20k miles on it. cross country or from maine to daytona. big difference between a race bike that gets torn down and scrutineered everytime its ridden and a bike thats getting the piss beat out of it for 10 hrs a day or more for never ending days.

    and i think it needs a bigger chain.
