Ran into this on craigslist a while back.  Seems like it was in the Northwest somewhere.

Smooth looking bike.
I think I recall seeing that mod posted somewhere, several years ago.

Ride safe, Ted

I actually remember when the owner was doing the build, he did post a bunch of photos, not sure if it was here or 'the other' site... there was a significant amount of 'carnage' involved, a lot of fiberglass, and BOndo used, but in the end it came out very 'cool', visually (on the outsides); cost wise I think he went a bit high, but hey... we all love to hotrod and customize, so that part was expected..  I wish I could remember who did that bike tho, it will come to me and I'll link to it's progression from the original post.

Here's more pics, when he was painting it. {can't find the build photo's}
After this phase, he added the adjustable windshield off of a BMW.

Ride safe, Ted
