Swinger in place, old set of shocks offered up but they aint up to the job.

Slashcut fitted (sounds evil), tank offered up, apes in place, stronger shocks fitted.

Today I did LOADS of bracing and strengthening at the top of the shocks, made one of the side panels (I think these can make a bike look half arsed if done wrong), and relocated all the electrics into the void left by the old monoshock... more pics tomorrow.

Oh yeah, forgot to say... it's a GSX750. Goes like stink, and now about 4" shorter and half a ton lighter. Should be 'interesting' with apes......

Just about finished now. Since this photo I have painted the clocks, fitted the cables and hoses and had it running. The wheels are currently getting new rubber and the rear light and sidemount plate are now fitted. Once the wheels get back I can fit the chain and take it for a shakedown run.

Those side panels worked out well dude!
Just hope my VT ends up as cool.
Gonna pinch that idea of bracing the rear, where you cut the back of the seat frame, it strengthens it all up a load, i recon.
It has answered a few questions I had in my head!
cheers

All in all a solid revamp!

that bloody dogs eyes are frightening though, lol
