lol, that's just grey primer, not white. it was actually primed for a looong time, but i dumped it HARD (high sided at about 60mph, landed on my feet, broke both my ankles) in a tight left hander one night, and since i had to fix the huge dent in my tank anyway, i figured i might as well paint it. that's also why my seat changed. in the older pics with the clip-ons, i had a modded fzr600 seat on it, when i wrecked it, it ripped all the mounts in the fiberglass all to hell, so i glassed the whole thing smooth and used 3/8 race foam for a seat.

the exhaust is micron s/s 750 headers with a cut down midpipe, and since NO ONE around here has a mandrel bender, i ordered two 90 degree pieces from jc whitney, and welded them together, and stuck the micron can on the end of it. the heat tape was an attempt to keep my heels from melting on the pipe. it sorta worked :D.

probably best that i sold it anyway, all the local police knew that bike ENTIRELY too well. it got stolen once, local police found it a month later sitting in a parking lot, with a broken throttle cable. they didn't even bother impounding it, they already knew who the owner was.

it's a vw factory color from a new beetle, have no idea what the name of it is, it's what was laying around the shop at the time. it was either that, or lime green, and that wasn't gonna happen, lol.
