There are so many cheesy sounding bike shop names these days I'd stick with something simple like Weside Customs.
Nice job on the 550, looks clean.

Like the look of the bike, but it kinda looks like everything got rattle canned black after it was put together? Or was that the way it was made? My ears hurt. No yelling.

California Cafe and Customs. Looks like ccc.com is not taken. I agree with keeping it simple. Just open the phone book and look at the silly names of tattoo shops.

Nice work weside. I look forward to your progress pics.




















BTW, you wanna sell me that 6-speed tranny out of your KZ550?
From what I understand it is a direct drop-in upgrade for my ZR-7S. :) :)
