Looks great, especially like the painted exhaust cover and the bronzed fork braze. What is the wrap on the handlebar wiring? That looks too cool.
Great job.

Ok, updating.
I gave up about the solo seat mini luggage rack. It's a bit messy having to remove it each time I have to swap seats. I've moved the tools bag to the front and installed a Hurricane pillion grab holder instead.

I finally managed to install a set of led sequential amazon drl/tail/turn indicators and a new parking and low/high halogen bulbs. Pretty satisfied with them all. It's been a great night vision and visibility improvement.


I have an homologation document but they are not euro marked so, well, anyway :)
On top of this, I was not completely satisfied with the kedo speedo relocator. Turning the key was a bit uncomfortable, so, I decided to build my own one inspired on the Gilles one but with a twist.
Just files, drill bits, a torch, a 3mm aluminium plate and some hours.

Hope you like it :)

Hope you like it :)

Right after installing the ebay tail tidy, I thought I could reuse some tubing I had around and started working in a more discrete pillion grab handle that works as a luggage rack when used with the solo seat, and voila :)

Well, I'm not the best welder in the world, at all. I just try with what I have around.


You can always take my idea to any local ironsmith and find something that fits your needs and your budget. :)


OTOH, I took the idea from this other iron I installed previously. It might fit you :wink2:
