These guys are very active and your bike should fall into their readership's tastes (hell - anyones taste for that matter!) http://thebikeshed.cc/your-bike-on-the-shed/

They have a classified section too.

Edit: just saw Hrdy beat me to it.

BikeExif would get you wider exposure, but he's super anal about photo quality; its as much a photography website featuring motorcycles, as a motorcycle website with photos. Even with a great bike, you need to do a good photo shoot to have something he'd want to run. He'll run some pretty naff bikes if the photos are good, and doesn't seem nearly as concerned with accurately covering / critiquing the technical side of things, and he rarely (never that I remember) shows photos of the build process.
To further this point - surely a talented man like Knifemaker knows some good photographers with some nice photo gear who would love a chance to do some wicked glamour shots of this machine. Getting a feature in BikeExif would be great, but I think that there would also be a lot of personal value in having some super high quality photos to remember the bike by when it's done.

I took some nice shots myself of my KTM when I had it, and I've always regretted that I didn't get any good ones of my old SV. The CBX gets an annual photo shoot on detailing day - but I've never had a pro shoot it. Maybe this spring...

BTW - remind me where you're located - is it VA? What's the story on getting a title for a bike with a homebuilt frame there? There's a dude on the SOHC4 forum building a frame and I'd like to pass on any helpful info.

I was looking back to Knifemakers carbon work for some help with a tail piece for my GSXR and stumbled onto this build.
I had a friend with one of these "pigs" we called "The V Raggo".
Holy shit this is a completely different creature than his pile!!
Super impressed with your skills and vision. Be well on your trip and start posting as soon as you begin your next project.

That thing looks so different now, when i sold it to him i was actually about a week away from tearing it all down and recycling/parting out. I was going to buy it from a friend a few years prior to chris getting it but not long before the sale to chris i ended up getting it for free because it was a lawn ornament.

I still wish i could have gotten the OG title for him but it just didnt work out. Im glad i didnt keep this to part out.... if i did this would never be a thing.

congrats on another work of art chris and i wish you well on your travels!
