    shock looks great, might look into it as mine looks a bit old and worn.

    also loving the red rim tape! just painted my wheels black and i have a red bike so may have to give that a go!

    Did extend the stand today.
    This was necessary because I have change the wheels from 10" to 13".
    Will be welded on monday :)

    That's a very nice job on the stand. Best way to do it without a doubt.

    One of the many things people will leave out as something you have to do when changing the wheels.

    looking smart, looks really good on the side stand, unlike my ped that looks drunk it hangs over so far haha

    its a shame you cant customise a pipe too leave more of the rear wheel expose and have the pipe up higher at an angle

    Thanks for the nice comments, tErr0 and Creamsodauk :)
    The exhaust will be standard looking, apart from painted black.

    It has to be the first "old school" type, the later seat is cr*p looking. I alway's use the old type seat.

    OK. My personal favorite is the "cr*p" looking seat :), but I will try them both and see which one is the most comfy one.

    Painted my exhaust.

    looks amazing, idea for you. Buy two memory foam pillows, put them in the padding of your seat. ;-)

    If you have read the whole tread, you will have noticed that I did change the engine to a rolling nut :)
