inverted forks

hey guys... i was looking through cdthayers website and came across this chopper..... now i know there is a chopper kit but it still has the regular forks.... but this is the second vn ive seen with inverted forks.... heres the link to the picture

http://www.cdthayer.com/imagesbike/7...pperbau_01.jpg

the other guy is stefan from holland i think?? just wondering if anyone has any info so i can start saving...

i checked out the website that the cdthayer bike is from and it says the forks are from the custom shop that the bike is listed under but the site is in german and since mine is a little rusty i was wondering if anyone could help with that too.. thanks guys

Do you see what I see? A hyper charger air intake on a vn750. Gives it a very "big twin" look. I like it. Also like the inverted fork tubes. It would make it a lot easier to mount lower wind deflectors. Notice only one set of directional signal lights, on the end of the handle grips. Side covers also appear to be gone.

I believe the one's on CD's site are actually covers they used to sell in europe to make them look like inverted forks.I've seen them for sale on a euro site before but can't remember what one.I could be wrong......
