    I'm talking about the very front of the motor, not the back, looks just like a bracket and a piece of rod welded to it from here. I'd like to see a closer look of whatever that is!

    This is a very beautiful build.
    Be sure to report back regarding performance, etc...
    I am sure we will all want to know how it rides.

    I just love the rear fender, and how it's mounted. That is damn sharp, and so many screw that part up. Very beautiful bike. Oh, those mirrors don't look right to me. I'd think you would want a wider view of the rear near the outside of the mirror, not the inside. I could be wrong.

    Thanks for the comment, fender is out of a Kawasaki ZXR250, bit of heat and trim and fitted nicely, I get what you say about the mirrors but that is what I settled with, is not practical but suits the style of the bike I think.

    Haha, that's what I thought too, there is always logic to any madness.

    I really like the rear section of the seat. It cleans up the rear end nicely.
