Default Put motor in

I took about a month off, summer was busy, and have just got back to it. Bot wheels are painted and in place, also mounted the motor yesterday. Not the greatest photo but thought I should get something posted.

I think , we can do several way

1. Just remove breather box and make a new neck (both side)

2. replace breather box with custom air filter to the left and right side (but the air duct should be SAME length

3. you can make cover air breather to make your engine bigger (ex: lets get vt750 air box or others and make new bracket)

Its rough, the paint has already chipped, it's loud, but man I love it. It took me forever to get it finished, and there is still plenty of the that can be improved but I am proud of it. I will have better pictures to come. Thanks for all the advice I have had!
