Very nice work sir.

You should take some more specific pictures and list the mods done.

Cheers guys for the comments,
Some of the older members might know of the bikes history,was a faired custom job with bits from mario narvo.
Was originally owned by a guy named Mono,who dumped it,then sold it to my mate who transformed it into a fighter.
I picked it up 2yrs ago ,but it needed some TLC.
F/end is off a 01 900ss ducati,has a JMC s/arm, HP shock,Gillies rear sets.
All i did was polish frame /Rad,outer rims.Painted the centres black ,give a satin paint job and h/light mask.
ust wanted to give it a freshen up,its no show bike,the front indicators are just above the btm triples ,their wrap around LED's

When i first picked it up

Hey Erno,

That looks grouse mate!

love the way you have freshened her up!

As you would be well aware I like the polished look and the new headlight is a winner.

Would a small custom screen be out of place?

little polish? Holy cow, all those cast areas sanded and polished must have been a lot of work.

" JMC s/arm"
What swing arm is that?

Unrelated, but sense we have a few Aussie's here I would like to share some great Aussie music, here is a band from Melbourne that I bet no one heard over here in the states:

Again sorry for the hijacking, just some nostalgia, I new personally Stuart Cranney from Sydney triple M radio station and spent some time at the station back in the 90's, he was introducing and promoting lots of new rock bands that otherwise would never get anywhere.
