Cool opinion time

OK guys, let me know what you think. It's a 92 i'm puting together for my son-in-law, (if my other daughter does'nt steal it first). He wanted something long and low so i thought, a longer swingarm would do both and i did it to my CB750 and liked the results. How hard could it be to lengthen a drivesaft, it's a lot like the one on my first car, 40 Ford sedan. So three weeks later and many fixes/changes, i took it for a ride today and it seems to work pretty well. It's still in the build stage so i can't get to far down the road, (no reg.), might be a slight cornering thing, but i'll have to wait and see. and now i know what to and not to do.
Also lowered the front by sliding the fork tubes up and put a set of clip-on at the top?
So what do you think??

Other mod's so far are ear shave, including all the crap under the tank, and de-goated.

Not that hard to do it, but it takes some expertise to balance it...thats a must...but Im sure ya know that...
And yeah...a nice flat rear fender from Paughco and a car tire rear.

Thanks for the kind words

"ODD", i was thinking a very small tab fender or none at all, but you have a good point.
Again, thanks to all.

I like that look! How much lower is it over all? And how low can you go before you need to do some kind of modification to the kickstand?
