Seriously Jay, you can use wrench's all by yourself?  :nananana: :rotflmao: :nananana:

Looking good buddy, nice job!

Cliff   :beerchug:

 ;D Thx Cliff!  :beerchug:

You need to convert some of the house to more garage space!!! :beerchug:

Last time he said he was going to move the recycling bin; a motorcycle service shop appeared. We all drooled...

Did you like the risers on the viffer ZG? Looks like the Gixxer would be more aggressive

 :)) :)) :))   Indeed in need for more garage space...  :truce:

Yep the Gixxer ergo's are not as comfy as the Viffer DZ but I like it like that.  :great:

Been scoring some good deals here and there on paintable bodywork the last couple months, full graphics kits that I ordered back in December just arrived, I ordered an extra set just in case some pieces don't play nice...  ;D

I was going to have a set painted, these popped up for sale so I grabbed em. It's good to have options for future, especially the unicorn parts before they're all gone...

NOS oem old sportbike bodywork is a form of currency on many planets.   :72:

Thanks guys, it's a really fun build finding all the little oem NOS bits online here and there.

I picked up another set of wheels and had them powder coated white to run with the blu/wht bodywork, she's starting to look like a new bike, freakin time warp all dressed in oem, I even got the reflectors!  :o ::)  ;D
