Looks good. Do it. Don't know where you live, but since only about 5 people in the US have bought an RC8 it might be tough finding a decently priced subframe and tail unit.

I think that the RC8 tail would be far too "sharp" for the Z750 or the SV. Those bikes have very round tanks and such and the RC8 uses a lot of hard edges, I don't think it would match well.

Shouldn't be too bad on a gen 2 SV. But I agree, prolly horrid on a gen 1.

He said he had a 2000 though, so Gen 1. I agree that it would match a Gen 2 well, but not a Gen 1.
