Agreed! That tail sharpens the whole bike up a ton. I can't get enough of fabrication!

Glad you guys like the new lamps! It's definitely more complimentary of the bike. The old ones grew a bit on me a bit, but I just couldn't get past the "bug-eyes"

I masked and primed the frame and tank yesterday. Today it'll get the top-coat, and tomorrow the clear coat. I'll be getting some clear vinyl to lay over the pain and provide some additional protection (also, in lieu of a tank pad) for high traffic areas. Anyone have any ideas for good quality clear vinyl? I'm worried about it yellowing with age and heat.

why you running the forks so low in the in the tripples, do you know that the srad had a really tight stearing rake anyhow compared to other gixers, its a tight stearing bike anyhow, you should lift it back to stock.

Females are nothing but Trouble, Motorcycles let you ride them with no guilt and all they ask you for is Gas Money.

Beat you to the punch! I lowered the front end (and not the rear >D) shortly after I got it (for looks, gah; I know! Lesson learned :P ). I rode the shit out of it this summer. The damn thing gyrated terribly in turns, so I lifted the forks back up after I tore it down. If you look in the latest pics I brought it back to almost flush with the triples. It's an absolutely HUGE improvement.

Holy shit, Viragos have a use after all...

It's not so bad as long as you can keep the fear from your mind.

Nice work on the build. I am glad to see more SRAD owners building their bikes into fighters. I saw in your comment that you think the bike is heavy. My SRAD weighs in at 406 pounds with a 3/4 tank of gas so the fighter conversion will lighten it up significantly.

I'm looking at slapping on a set of touring or drag bars (when I get the funds). I think I'll be milling up the risers myself. I still have to finish painting the frame today. I'm about half way through painting it flat black so far; don't know if I like it with the clear coat on top of it yet. I'll head out there for a wetsanding shortly.

KANE, actually your bike was the first SRAD streetfighter that I ever saw; one of the inspirations behind this project.

Thanks for the input folks! I really appreciate it! Hope to have some updates for you all tonight!

They are few and far between. The Europeans don't think they make good platforms but that is what drew me to using one. Plus they are so damn reliable and handle excellent.
