Holy crap the last two weeks have been a whirlwind. The one moto show was a blast! first pic is from 4 days before the show. cant believe i finished it in time.
heres everything I did for the show;
Tarrozi High clip ons
custom tirple clamps
re-clocked the exhaust and by doing so was able to eliminate an unnecessary bend, while simultaneously tucking the exhaust higher and tighter.
custom swingarm
custom rear brake setup with grimeca caliper and brembo MC
converted rear wheel spacers to aluminum
fixed the leaking head-gasket
bunch of stuff powdercoated, anodized and some fresh nickle plating on the head nuts and kiskstart lever.

Ill gave to get more pics of the bike

Vic,
It was such a thrill to see your bike in the show, I went with my son and we had a blast. Your bike was getting a lot of serious looks Saturday midday and I really enjoyed seeing all the stuff you have been fabricating in the flesh. Absolutely top notch !!!!!!! Congrats.
The new triples are seriously sweet too.
