I would call that "very honest". lol

**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

i fixed the links

i like the look you are going for but i would have painted the whole engine not just the sides because the unpainted parts near where the carbs attach will show in the sunlight

the wrap on the pipes could be cleaner on the tips this could be done by starting the wrap at the tail end of the pipes so you can hide the clamp then wrapping towards the manifolds

I like your work you have done, ain't crazy about the tall bars but hey , it's yours good job so far.

Remember when I say I don't like the bars, I'm the guy that puts Meanstreak Drag bars on a Bagger, behind a fairing, different strokes , it's all good.
