A couple of pieces out being chromed or on order (brake lines, etc.).
Wheels, paint and some minor stuff still to go.
Actually, it won't be paint. But, I don't want to spoil the surprise... :0)

Comments welcome. Hope you enjoy. (link to Flickr Album - http://www.flickr.com/photos/25049152@N02/ )

TampaSVT, that bike is SUUWHEEET!!! Looks like a piece of candy. YOu'd better keep an eye on it, someone is going to walk up and lick it one day . I was just looking at your other pictures in the "just drove it home" post. Can't wait to see the finished product..
So, I had to edit my post after I saw the rear rotor. Apparently that candy ain't for eating, it's just for looking through. I think the little indian dude on Josie Whales said that ..

Thanks.

Depends what she looks like... :0)

The rotors are freshly installed. Haven't had it on the road yet. Now that I think of it, I haven't even gotten insurance yet...

LOL!! Sounds like you have the kind of problem many of us wish we had.. Plenty of budget/time .. Make sure you get some of those sparkly things to put under the end of those pipes for when you lower it.. That'll make a cool picture..

Oh, I don't plan on dragging anything to make sparks. Atleast not on purpose... :0)
