That's pretty damn cool, extremely cool for it being the first bike modified. You see a lot of the plate side panels on home bikes now also. Did you ever go full on Hard Tail?

It's very San fran, put some rabbit ears on it, change the place of the tank bung and add some fish scales and you'd have the whole pict. Too bad we can't make mods on bikes that only exist in our past.

You can make anything look good when you park it next to a Lada!

In the black picture it looks like you got rid of the neck gussets... or is that just the angle? It also looks like you put some shorter forks on the bike, trying to pick up a little more performance?

similar to a mullet but it was a biker haircut in the 80's called 'a roadrat cut'.

i raked the headstock out a few degrees and fitted shorter forks, the long forked chopper look had worn out over here and the short squat look was in. Yorkshire seemed to have its own styles of bike come and go.
