That 1/8x1/2 chain on there? How's it work with the multi+derrailleur?
If you don't have a lens for the tank light maybe just a grill of some sort. I even like the open scoop look. Possibly make something to finish out the inside and paint it black.
Exactly what I was thinking...a screen or yeah just leaving it open is viable too, thanks!
Oh man, I had a flame banana seat on it last night with a sissy bar...then I looked at it this morning and said nah, I found a better stem to give me some breathing room while riding. I kept the same set up and added a better brake lever and a Pletscher rack instead of the stock one. Holy heck, I nailed it!
I hope to have some pics up in a couple hours. it looks even better than the last pics....happy!
Would you consider selling me the stock rack?

Maybe something bullet shaped in that "intake".
Yes, and the original rear fender which will clean up like the front one!
I addressed the headlight issue with some black mesh from a very unlikely source, a metal pencil holder at Walmart. Re-did the brake and handlebar situation by adding a new handbrake lever and a taller stem. Here are some updated pics. Unfortunately following the shoot I tried to take it for a spin and the chain got stuck and pulled the derailleur into the spokes! Come to find out, the third gear sprocket had some bent teeth. So it's off to the LBS to put a new cluster on it.
Thankfully the derailleur took the beating and not the wheel. Don'tcha just love when these things happen?
