Looks good Steve.
I like the look of diamond plate more than just chrome myself.

I like it a lot. Looks great - and unique which is always good in my book.

Do you have closer pics of the ears?

very nice, i like it alot.... i think it is in need of paint now to pull the diamond plate flames more into the bike, maybe like a deep red or something..... right now it seems like they are almost separate if you know what i mean....i do like it though... how did you attach it? epoxy?

Very nice job, Steve! I really like the chrome mesh on the air cleaners. Where did you find the mesh if I might ask? I popped out the black plastic inserts on mine and replaced with some chrome inserts but have been toying with doing exactly what you did and now that I see it, I want to steal your idea (the ultimate compliment, of course).
