Nice work. Any idea as to how much weight you've saved?

You are either dipping your tungsten a lot or you aren't cleaning your al at all... or both.

Nice skidplate.

Very cool indeed. You thing the new sub frame is strong enough..... Looks like a very nimble, and capable machine, that begs to be jumped. Just looks like the members are gonna hold a lot of impact. Nice...

I'm not mechanically inclined enough to second guess your work, so I'll just say that I love people like you, I'm always fascinated by peoples attempts to use their own ideas and skills to improve on a motorcycle.

Awesome I love it! Tell us about the faux-tank panels, too! And what headlight is that?

I don't know the factory of headlight.
Today I try a protection for radiators.

Hi, gp!

Nice work, but.... the Queen of the Desert is unbeatable!!

PS - trust me: don't forget some ventilation holes for headers piping
