bike is looking good so far! i like your tail idea..i've been workin on the same thing with my 929, yet to come out with the desired result. i think the angle of your exhaust needs to match the angle of your subframe tho. thatd clean it up visually. GREAT work so far tho. keep us posted!
ya i agree withe the exhaust idea. but his i like. on my i want a shorty pipe and to keep the swingarm clean. i like having a hole between the tire and the subframe... and undertail exhaust just doesn't to it for me...
Well here is a picture of how it stands right now. Ran out of time over the winter and never got anyplace near where I wanted to be with this thing but, slapped some paint on the tank and got it reday to beat the hell out of it this summer. The tail will be fabbed in over the next couple of weeks but the rough frame/skeleton for it has been set. I have another more steeper and compact subrame that I am fitting/welding up but that is not until next winter. Things left that I want to do over the summer if funds allow are an R1 front end(easy swap to USD's w/ right parts), new more compact light setup, and fabricate my own exhaust mid-pipe which will bring the pipe higher and closer to the tail(which should make the tail look more compact and neat). Let me know what you guys think. The plan is when everything is finished is to go with a blackout look with just some brushed aluminum accents to contrast certain things.
Have done some paint work over the winter while fixing the typical 2nd gear dropout on the R6. I've been really lazy this winter and the tail still hasnt been finished, but that is next along with a custom high-mount exhaust. Will get some pics soon.
