I see custom paint, aftermarket muffs (Bassani ?), and a store bought lugage rack. Looks sweet !, but this section is more for homemade parts, frame modification, etc, as anyone can "buy and bolt"...

How's the weather down there ?...prime ridin time, aint it ?

It may look aftermarket but its the original which I cleaned up and sawed off the tips to how I liked it. It sounds pretty awesome and the weather is pretty good. All of it is original and was restored to look like new, only a few broken engine parts were bought but thats of course because its the engine. It was all painted and done at home.

My risers, made by chopping the lower part of the handlebar clamp off an upper triple I had laying around. Perfect height adjustment for the Daytona bars I put on the bike:

Scares the snot outta me...I did similar once when I was 16 with some aftermarket risers...steel bolts with an allen head...they stripped outta the holes...that was on my Bultaco Matador...alloy triple tree....if nuthin else, get a 1/8" steel plate with 3 holes, and tie em all together, or drill all the way thru the tree, and nut the ends. If anything, ya shouldda made the piece that hits the handlebar bottom long enough to hit both original mounts (3 holes). That would alleviate the stress on the single points.
