Lose the helmet lock--it detracts from the clean look of the bike. Other than that, looking good!



Paint the frame dark blue, chrome the fender, tank, and other bits, and put the stock stickers back on the tank. Old school drag bars would be trick.



Back in the olden days we nickel-plated frames and swingarms. Nickel protects from corrosion but won't hide cracks. Nickel is cheaper than chrome.



I'd put something between the passenger peg and chain if I ever planned to use that peg. better yet, lose the passenger pegs.

That's awesome! Got any details on the parts you've used to far? For instance, did you fabricate that swingarm or is that a Japanese part?



Great look! I love it the way it is.

Most of the after market parts are from Japan through Motoshop Z. See here for more information about ordering from them: http://www.honda50.com/?page_id=162



Anyway, the parts from Japan are:



Extended swing arm

Headlight bracket

Brake light

Front Fender

Small battery/tray

Supertrapp exhaust



The rest of the stuff I've done locally:



Ebay 4.5in Bates style headlight

Drag Specialties Speedo

Mirror

Re-upholstered seat

Chain/Sprockets

Nice!



Question: Can you get those swingarms in different lengths or are your options basically keep it stock or go long, yours looks great, don't get me wrong but i've never been a huge fan of the extra long stretched out tire on ANY bike. Sportsbikes especially, they look like the rear tire is a whole seperate entity from the bike itself! LoL.



I also really like the exhaust styling but have wondered how difficult it would be to run the exhaust directly under the seat to where it exits near the license plate, kind of like a Sachs Madass. Anyone seen this done?



Thanks

The swing arms as ordered from Japan typically come in 2 lengths +150mm or +200mm over stock. Of course, if you stretched your own stock swing arm you could choose the length.
