It is a clean title, guy said he just didn't have time anymore and gave $50 for it so I told him I'll give you $50 (He was asking $100)

Those headlights looks sweet! Looks like cool sunglasses with lots of blings. I am sure they light up your night when u ride out.

This thing is headed in a new and unusual direction. You should carry the double-theme throughout the rest of the bike as you build it.

UPDATE: Ok I haven't posted in a while, winter here in Oklahoma isn't horrible but I still parked her in the garage. I haven't done much but here's an update:
- I took off the LED pods (just didn't have the skills to pull them off)
- bought a cheap 7in round headlight

- roughly attached my fzr guages in autometer cups

- still doing body work on the new tank (bondo, sanding, inside liner coating, paint and clear coat left)

- I plan to take the 4-1 exhaust off of the parts bike and wrap it and put it on this one with a different muffler and keep going from there, now that it's starting to warm up I've got to get here ready to ride!!! :thumbsup:

Ok guys, for my experience level and the tools/funding I had to work on this project I and more than happy with the current result! I'm just going to post all of the pics I have of the current state and feel free to comment or ask questions and I will answer them to the best of my ability! She is no where close to being done but I'm liking the direction!

I'm thinking it's time to give her a name? Any ideas??


Be safe everyone, now that it's warming up out, its time to ride!

Looks good . :clap: Just picked up a $50 gumtree bike.
Same thing as Craigslist here in Oz. A Bit more corrosion than Id like and not running yet. Concentrating there first. But going naked eventually.
What are the instruments and have you got detail on their mounting? And the light mounts?

The guages at FZ600 guages mounted in autometer cups, I got the guages off of EBay and the autometer cups (5202 I believe) and copied Apearl2010 and put the indicator lights inside of the tachometer. As for mounting it all, I made some slip on fork mounts out of aluminum and bolted them together and used a peace of flat bar bent like a [ and just bolted it on with the headlight piece.
