That is a sick bike son, I love the headlight and the subframe.

The can is neat, too. It looks sorta like the new GSXR1000 Mufflers but better. Probably sounds better too.

You gotta give us heads up on how you made your headlight and subframe btw, we're all dyin to know.

I like the headlight, I wanna do something similar (with a completely obscure, bizarre headlight though)

Thanks everyone for the positive comments. Yes, the head light is the one from ebay. No I'm not on Ground Pilots.

For all the details on the build check out my build thread on Cycleforums at:
http://www.cycleforums.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=251073

I will be keeping that thread updated with my build progress. I will also periodically be adding picks to the CustomFighters Buildoff thread. I would like to have a build thread here as well but maintaining two threads can be a bit of a pain. Regardless, CustomFighters is where I'll be hanging out for now on. Way more useful info here. Not to mention the people here. Most people on CycleForums didn't like the non-tail section on my fighter. I like it.....

Thanks. She's getting painted and the wheels powder coated this week. The end is almost in sight. Only things left are:
wire up lights
customize seat
install front brake line
make a license plate bracket
install a couple small bling items
Polish her up!

Hey Man,
I reall ylike tehlevers yo got on there. Are those one off? If not where did yuo get 'em?

Fuck I like the seat are the nay sayers nutzo? You bikes tight man. Keep it up.

Let me know about the levers if you could. Grips look killer as well.

Wish could find shit like that over here. I got to one off custom build everything. Would be nice to buy at least one item instead of design and make.

I hate this site..it makes me want to move back home more and more ha ha ha.

90% of the parts I buy are from ebay. The grips I ordered directly from SP Fight-Machine (my fav) from Germany.
Head light - Thailand
Hugger - Portugal
and so on...
I find the shipping from the US into Canada takes the longest. Sometimes it even costs more it I get charged with brokerage fees.

Roughly how much did the grips run you once they got shipped over? I've been thinking of ordering a set myself.
Grips delivered were $110USD. You can also get them from streetfighterstore.com but their prices are jacked.

I like the decals, its a real tasteful use of chrome, any planned for the headlight?

Hey thanks, Candyman. Ya, I do have more of the decal to apply. There's enough for the front fender, headlight, and rad fairings. I just don't want to over do it, thus making it "untasteful".

Yeah that res is fucking sweet!. I like the seat concept and triangle piece you did. I would pry the staples out underneath the seat and redo it tighter. I think you might be able to make it look better than the upholsterer did.
