my classic bike now under modification

my bike with his panniers being installed
this is the design of the wind shield by GIVI italia

in 4 days ill post it with pannier
i install metzeller tires made in germany, i have a hard time converting it to mags because its size is 18 inches wheels, most bikes here in the Philippnes are 17 inches , iam adviced to downgrade it to 17 inches but i opted not to maintain its nice ride. i retain the old worl spokes.

the handle bar is clip on. cafe racer type, i had it annodized for quite a sum, which retain its original hue of gun metal

i remove the factory canopy to make it more of a standard, naked bike , paint the front shocks, remove some flairings, trim the seats, cut the pipes just protruding to the rear axel

"iam contemplating to chrome my entire fuel tanks, and remove all my rear fairing... im still studying what will it be

I am very happy with this bike, because i personally designed it.... it was originaly a kawasaki wind with modern headlight, i converted it to a classic round headlight of a honda super 4.

i plan to change the turn signal light up front, nanufacture some chrome covers for battery and air filter with mesh. change the instrument cluster to chrome ( but i will miss the fuel guage) replace the rear stop light to a more classic design.

my problem is the placement of turnlights at the rear, im sure it wilbe resolved by tuesday sept 23,2008
