Looks good man, I wasn't sure about the tail before but I like how it came out. Good luck! Do you have a closeup of the Maple Leaf on the front? Is that just cosmetic? And I love the maple leaf based paint job...truthfully, I didn't see that until you posted the pics without graphics!

Haha the PIAAs are awesome lights for fighters. I agree headlights are the hardest part... just finding someone who sells them is hard enough, let alone finding ones that work and mounting them to your forks.

That leaf on the front was a paper weight (maybee still is!!!), a guy at work gave it to me when I told him I was gonna mount brass knuckles on that spot. The leaf is brushed brass, he said he bought it at a garage sale for a buck!!!
