good start so far. well done.

The only thing i would say that is going to be easy is to paint the brakes black. The yellow stands out to much.

Also if you can fill the gap behind the seat and the light then it will look a little more planed.

keep going its a good start!

Looks pretty good already. Really, it's up to your tastes what to do with it from here. I think it would look better with some digital gauges, those two large gauges are a bit of an eyesore IMO.
Thanks a lot, also that's what i'm thinking of that 2 coffe mugs hanging there...hahaha

Welcome, looking good!

A couple quick and easy mods I'd do would be to get rid of the reflector below the plate and streamline the chain guard such as drill a bunch of speed holes in it. That's pretty much my advice for everyone, speed holes, haha.

Cheapo digital guages, chop that exhaust back, a little more fiberglass or plastic work on that little tail stub, and some differnt turn signals and possibly headlight and itll be gravy.

Looks good amigo, welcome. Alot of good suggestions being thrown to you here. Trailtech has a digital gauge called the Vapor. I've installed it on my bike, and so have many others. Great little gauge, easy install, etc. You can't go wrong there. Check out my build if you want to see it. Also I have a thread on here somewhere about it. Any ways, bike looks great. I'd remove the chain guard altogether if you feel comfortable enough, I did that and haven't gone back. I second the cutting the exhaust back, and if you aren't taking any passengers, get rid of those pegs altogether. Either way, you've got a great looking bike, it can only get better. Keep us updated amigo, and welcome!

Different opinion here than most others thus far. I like the tail the way it is except the turn signals. Would be cool if you could find an integrated tail light for that thing, or make your own. I like the yellow brakes. Goes along with the yellow on the tank. The gauges are a bit large, so I agree with others on that one. Otherwise I think it looks pretty good so far. Welcome
