OK, Here's a n update you wont be interested in!
The Faiings on, the wires are hidden.
Jus need to fit indicators and mirrors for MOT.
BUT......................
I dont like it!
It aint Tuff enuf!
See?


So.............. after many hours pissin about on the computer, I've got 2 ideas.
1, Fit a crappy Enduro Number plate n light combo........ or
2, Trim the existing fairing, fit projection beams/twin spots and lower it all to a better psition.........................
Like this


Come on, tell me I'm MAD screwy I wont take it personally....... frustrated
Then again I may just give up. pullhaur2

I think sit up bars and a standard nose cone just don't work together mate, If you are going fighter then I think I would look for a tiny nose cone.

I'm afraid I'm gonna have to agree with cabbie mate, it doesn't look right to me but its all in the eye of the beholder matey, so if it looks good to you then go with it! thumbup

It's the gap between the fairing and top yoke that make it odd. If you coud trim the red bottoms of each side then mount the the rest as a bikini then it'd look good, but make sure you do the arse end too!

Why not lift the standard fairing to complement the bars and produce the worlds first "Tourblade"? Laughing

take the fairing off...twin spots...drag bars

look at your side on pic with the new seat unit...take off the fairing...looks like a proper fighter

I was well in to Streetfighters mag from day 1, I was a subscriber from day one and have every copy up to about 4 years ago. It's gone a bit too mainstream for me, part of the attraction was the underground streetfighter vibe which has sadly gone.

I got the same trouble i think with my fairing/yoke gap.It looks like it has been thrown there.I have moved it as close to the yoke as i can and will look at it again when its all back together.Mind you,i got a huyabusa nose cone so i guess that throws me straight out in the style department.I can't explain why,but i've always liked liked the drag race style of the busa front.

Exactly, so it iz original over here, I've been of z SF scene for a vile, but I don't travel to Z Fatherland too often, so it iz original to me mein her. It's a lovely bike whatever. But that tailpiece HAS been around for yonks and yonks. I've seen loads of Deutsch jobbies with alien paintwork, but none with Alien vs predator, and I just love that predator light shroud, which I havn't seen until now.

I was watching nitrous Gixer 11's with Terminator and Predator paint jobs zig zag over chelsea bridge when I were a lad on the back of my dad's 'who dares wins' GPZ11 FI years ago, things change and new ways of doing things come around, but It's all been done before in some guise or another.

Do you need some encouragement? Go for it, it's a nice tailpiece, but If it's not an original Idea, I'd leave well alone hubba
