Initially I was planning to build it, test it, strip it and paint everything. Then I got the tank! I then decided to make sure everything was sound and about to rot away but keep the patina of the tank.

I am looking for an alloy front guard for it and thinking about going to a 7" headlight, maybe a 19" front wheel off a R1200GS (same spoke setup)...........

That's funny cos I was looking at your headlite thinking I'd like to go smaller.
Interesting to see if you get hold of an alloy front guard.

Hello,

I bought the bars from http://www.ventura-bike.com/products/streetbar.aspx . I think they are VH9S but might be VH7s.
I cut them down in width and painted them as they only came in chrome.
Cheers.

I have it on good orthority that a modified GS is eligible as a custom bike so bring your bike and join me in teaching the choppers about custom bikes!
