    Johann, I will tell them You sent me.
    the covers give the forks a clean and sturdy look.
    The price is good too. tyvm.
  5. Well, it looks like I am going to have to change mine up a litlle bit! lol

    Mine won't be as nice, but the exact same stance, almost, that I have in my mind.

    Nice ride!

    No problem Brotha! Yeah I like how they beef up the front! I think they'll look awesome on your bike for sure!

    GeorgeKillianLett Pretty new to bikes.

    OK..... Here is my suggestion!
    Do the Chicks on the "Pocket Rocket" shoot and the Redwoods on the "Hard On" Shoot.

    Call it the...... "Morning Wood photo shoot"! :D

    I know! ....juvenile! :laughing:

    jdizon - you and I made a few friendly jabs at each other in another post about painted-powdercoated engines and cases. I am a fan of the au naturel look of a nicely bead blasted engine. This is definitely an exception to that though - I really dig the immaculate looking natural top end on the the black cases and how it all works with the rest of the bike.

    The only thing that really pisses me off is knowing that this is just 1 of 2 killer bikes you are working on. It's like dating twin supermodels - why can't it be me?!

    I hate you, in the nicest of ways.

    Thanks Gigi! I've got a few other ideas/details/eyecandy related stuff to implement in some areas of the bike that are pretty cool so stay tuned!

    No worries man and Thanks! I love the natural look too! Just wanted to put some contrast in there. I was planning on painting the whole engine but I wanted to make the top end look like its floating mainly :thumbsup:

    Btw These Supermodels will be ridden hard on the daily :D
  12. The bike looks like a show stopper for sure. Like the tank you have on it now a lot better than the Harley tank. The clip-ons might be uncomfortable on a long ride but for wheel stands and red light to red light should work well. I think I would have put on those straight pipes that were in one of the pictures and be riding that bad boy. That 700 should have no problem out performing the iron head also a fine looking bike. You really built the rocket right on bro. :thumbsup:

    Thanks Scabber! Yeah the clip-ons aren't definitely not for a long ride. Built this bike for city riding mainly. The tank won't get me far either lol! I've already been talking with Livingdeadmc on modified attack bars so there might be some design changes. In terms of the exhaust, planning to run HHB speedster pipes. Just love the look and sound of them!

    Thanks for the feedback and good words man! Appreciated!

    when you're done you should *attempt* to make a list of all the work you've done. it looks KILLER man! well done
  15. I think you have to STOP now, you making us all look bad!!!:cussing::boxing:

    That looks A-mazing. I would be chuffed to bits if mine came out looking half as good!!

    I first thought it wouldn't work, but the lines and everything else just flows..........

    Well done Johann, pat yourself on the back!!:thumbsup:

    jdizon XS650 Guru

    Hahah Thanks man! Took alot of mock ups and multiple tanks etc to get that right flow and stance. I might actually raise the rear shocks 2 inches to give the bike a more aggressive posture tho

    I'll get a spec list of parts and stuff done but mostly put everything in the build thread.
