Sweet. I know folks that would kill for those forward controls.

I also wish they had those chrome fenders on the U.S. bikes. I had thought of installing a set of those with the chrome sidecover, then having the gas tank chromed.

What is the seat from?

Welcome to the madness baldy. Judging from your rear plate you are across the pond from us. UK or the continent?

You have some nice mods. I hope it rides as well as it looks.
