Thanks a lot!

The License mount is made by GasBox and you can find it here:

The Lighted frame is made by RadiAntz and you can find it here:

Hope that helps

Chris, very nice, you seem to have a knack for it. Oh, and shouldn't the one with your lady be over in ten "Hot chicks on hot bikes" thread?

Chris, this is some great work on both bikes! From where did you buy the 3.3 gallon tank and what kind of blue color is it, are there also some flakes in it? Great color and painting, looks different in every picture.
