    Only the preview is, don't worry about it, once you click on the box to view in full scale it works fine.
    It's an incompatibility between Apple images and this site's inability to read the image orientation code.

    At this point the motor was more or less ready to go into the frame so I put it in a plastic bag and set it aside.

    I moved onto the frame. I knew i wanted to move the rear sets to the static tabs that were already on the frame so I just these off.

    I used a cut off saw for this and then used an angle grinder with a sanding disk to smooth it over.

    I'd love to see how you did the bodywork.

    I really like that.. how did you do the front mudguard.. it looks lower that standard height. I'm having trouble using the OEM brace to sit the fender any lower without modifying the brace.

    Just modify the brace, there are plenty about for most models even if you fuck it up...

    The reason it looks lower is that i'm running a 100 series tire on the front. It's a touch taller, thus taking up the gap.

    I suppose if there is still interest, I can finish the post!
