I think I might be tempted to leave it as is and just bake the mud in place as as sort of very sculpted fairing?

Don't you have a new addition to the family to show us?

I think you'll find, DBD, that you've either got a bulb blown, or
your flasher relay is a bit forked....that indicator's going a bit fast.
Just thought I'd mention it....

Nice looking bike, jings, but it's a tad sketchy vis-a-vis seat padding.....

Seat looks a bit luxurious compared to mine



Overall I think it's a really nice build. I particularly like the rear suspension, but then I always was a sucker for a cantilever monoshock as they had just begun to be the thing when I got into bike racing. The factory & retail Yamaha TZs had just converted over, and I remember wandering around GP paddocks goggle eyed looking at the various interpretations of the concept.

I like what they've done with the exhaust, and it'd be very interesting to hear how it sounds. It's quite short isn't it? Tho/ough I'd like to see a source link and more info/pics I must say to my eye it's a nice amalgamation of various airhead & fabricated parts which produces a bike I'd like to own, tho/ough I'd have to move the pegs/pedals rearwards/up slightly & scuff it up a bit to suit my taste

I suspect that may be the result of a regular flasher unit running undamped LED bulbs? Always end up running a bit fast
