Thanks! Now I'm thinking about painting the shark eyes and teeth on the sides of the tank like on the old war planes. Not sure when I'll do that though, but it'll probably be in the next couple of weeks. And you should hear this thing! My dad, who has been a biker for 30+ years, heard me on the highway behind his house and he swore it was a hog. lol I know there's some people here who aren't fans of loud bikes, but cranking down on that throttle and hearing it scream just seems to put a big ole' grin on my face. :D

I made those pipes out of the stockers. They have 12" glass packs on them and the they're wrapped with black fiberglass exhaust wrap. I used the wrap for two reasons:
1. It'll help cut down on the heat on my legs (no more heat shields)
2. It covers up all the ugliness of the welds and stuff.

I like the idea of pin-up girls, but I don't think I can paint that good. I can probably do the teeth though.

Fine looking paint job and the new back fender makes a big difference since last you showed us pictures. I hope you get a million miles of smiles out of her.

You might be talking about the fenders when I bought it. It only has one fender now.

The glasspacks are pretty similar to the ones for cars, but these are smaller and are for bikes. You can get them for about $15
