just my opinion, but i dont like the ape hangers, and the headlight looks tiny in comparison to the bike itself. looking at it i got the impression of a strong, solid bike....an image that headlight doesnt fit.



those ape hangers really kill it for me though.



your bike tho, very very nice work, been lookin for an R1 to tool around on myself.

Ummmm.....

Different. Hadn't ever thought of putting Ape's on a sport bike before.

That liscense plate must go through hell at almost 200mph or in the corners when you only get 20* of lean out of the left.

Take one thing - make it totally different.



Rep to ya for that.


Personally, the apes kill it for me too. it'd be cool with some type of a modernized clubman bar on it.

interesting, I could see that working if the theme was a little more coherent.

My first impression was just how perverted of a genre you created.

His speedo might have read 198, maybe, but true speed was waaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy off.

Also not a fan. Not because it's ridiculous and there is no way in hell it handles well at all, but rather because I just don't think it looks good. But I'm not gonna knock you for trying something different. Very different. However, I would try to avoid someone named MPLS if I were you...

HAHAHAHA

I don't like it at all. sorry man, it just looks way to much like that kris krome abortion of a bike.

a subframe that doesn't look hacked and some different bars might make it ok. but hey, its not my bike so you do what you want

With the apes I'd have to stretch that unit just a hair. Without em? Flat as all hell bars.

Dopeness either way. Props on the build.

well it is different thats for sure.i kinda like the look of it but im usually the odd man out here when it comes to stuff like that.the problem is,the point to building a fighter is to enhance the performance and apes are a huge fail in that department.but like everyone else said,its your bike and if you happy with it FTW......welcome to the site....no go build something without apes.or maybe put some drag bars on that one.
