Very nice.
:drink:

What method did you use to matte the headlight buckets? How much work is involved in disassembling the top tube from the lower fork?

How does one go about doing a two tone alu part like your top clamp? Looks very nice and the color edge is sharp as a razor. Powdercoat first and then machine clean area off?

Looks really good. Very complete and well thought out.

Stops crap from the chain from being flicked onto the engine? I doubt a little plastic cover is going to do anything if the chain does manage to fly off. Taking the chain guard off looks great in my opinion too. If someone is stupid enough to stick their fingers in there while the bike is moving they deserve to loose them :twofinger:

dont take the chain guard off, just cut it back so the flinging oil stays off the motor. people freak when they see that...fuck that, how the fuck would anyone get their fingers in it while im going a hundred. besides a shoestring will snap before being able to pull my size 11 into hell.
Thanks all...i dig the triple....no powerband freaks me out in a good way.

I once say someone do a tank wheelie, the freaked out when going a little to high, chopped the gas and slammed down real hard. The guy didn't crash, but took it in the nuts good and had to walk it off. I have no need to dress up my wheelies, sometimes you just don't mess with the classics if they still work.
