Playing around with that "unpainted tank" look on one of my projects... it's technically an airhead, but not really an ADV-airhead....

This looks really nice, but I would not trust that subframe, tha stock subframe is not that strong, but yours looks as if it might collapse the first time you land off a big bump.

iMHO etc etc

I hope no one gets hurt! It will be a miracle. I alway thought nonsense like that (dangerous for looks) was for choppers but the times they are a changing.

Hey Jon Lars -
Were those photos taken different times? The headlight bracket is either different on each side - or you changed them at some point. Which are on the bike now?

Stephen.... who notices hardware differences

Hi, Great Bike! Is that the rear sub and seat tail from VonZeti?
I've been thinking about buying from them to upgrade my rear.
I love the shorter seat and tail, but I'm a little concerned because I'm 6'3", I have rear sets installed so maybe it won't be that bad.

Good job on the noticing, Stephen!
It's the same bracket. I had painted it black but didn't get a durable finish, so stripped it bare.
