Started it for the first time in 7 months after a long rebuild and face lift. Then put 90 miles on it after the heat cycling phase of the break in. 410 miles left till I can let her really breath.

Just got these from the states i was thinking of putting the left rights on the oil and battery cover and the middle one on the bottom of the tank, i really love the old school hot rod look Other than that its putting them on my black and yellow open face! The white is actually clear as there made for cars and bikes.

Its a tester for a paint job
