With respect to the forks, I don't want a front or rear fender so I will probably go with an alternative like the TKAT. I'm trying to reduce weight wherever I can, too. For example, the battery box is way too heavy (and completely rusted) so I will have to find a replacement. I'm holding onto it in case I need to use it as a template. Yeah, I do not like those bars at all. I want a more aggressive posture meaning clip-on or clubman. Say, how far down can I tuck the forks to the main body of the bike? I do like shorter pipes but not wrapped. Also, I'm not a fan of the stock pipes and muffler. I'm a minimalist and am paying attention to the foundation, cut-off points, height, bone line, angles, and fork distance. I haven't bothered to look for signals or a headlight. The headlight can go, too. I guess that my biggest concern is the 1977 engine and the 1983 frame. I haven't decided if I'm going to replace the engine or not. It's a kickstart but I bet that will get old pretty quick. I'm still figuring things out however, I really appreciate the input. Below are a couple of example of what I like minus the seats. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
