yep getting the seat on and well supported was a pain, i didn't want to weld in anything for fear of having to remove it later, and as it turns out the first time i put it on i had covered the battery box,
the rear sets are from hales honda in the uk, they screw me around a bit, but they do make some nice stuff.
i went to the last race at nhis and noticed lots of bike with fenders so i thought it would be a good idea, maybe keep some of the crap from the rear wheel off the motor.
my wife is pretty cool every time i think i should get another bike she say ok, shes should be keeping me in check, i lack self control.
one of them is a 1968 bultaco i just got for the next moto giro, and we have a 06 yamahe fz6 with some nice mods

no 'fence but it's not -that- hard to figure out..... i mean, i absolutely LOVE beer and what it brings to your taste buds.....



my goal in life is to open a restaurant where there is no wine list but a beer list. when you order your 5 course meal you don't have the choice of what you ought to drink but instead it's my and the chef's choice.

i am one of these guys who think that beer can accompany a meal just as well as whine can.

dude, i thought you wanted to sell all the carbon body stuff with the wheels and that would have burned up all my beer money. i'll e-mail you tomorrow on that because right now it sounds like a good deal, and hey i still need that belly pan

oh and the beer in question was a trice hopped and golden english ale with delicate red hues and a sprig of gentle malty flavor.
or the blond one for short

Midge,

Just a thought. Looking at your mockup picture it looks like your ass is going to be placed behind the top shock mount. Which means that a bike that already had too much rear weight distribution is going to be made worse when you sit on it. It would make a big difference if you could shorten the seat and move it forward. But that's just an observation and I'm only passing along advice I was given once. Your bike is looking very nice.
