The Custardline

I think I've finally finished farkalling the F8
The lastest effort was to fit the TT supertank and get rid of the low front guard so I don't have a repition of this......

I do have to say that the problem was not as bad as on the Boxer GS



Anyway, thanks to WW Ronin and others on this forum, who did all the design work for me, I fabbed a bracket out of a plastic chopping board and mounted an aftermarket KTM fender to the beast.




The blanking plate at the front of the tank nose, where the beak usually bolts on was cut from a piece of ally sheet.
What do you think? I recon it looks OK.
The fork guards are braced from behind with a bit of light galv. sheet and fixed to the fork legs with a single screw.
A local brake bloke fabricated the dual brake lines, which come down from stacked banjos at the ABS block.
So here is the finished job.
