Hey man sweet job, front to rear. I'm really digging the v-rod headlight on the xb forks, fits the look right. Probably gunna have to borrow that idea from ya for my rigid xb chop.
Actually, would you be interested in selling me a set of those custom headlight brackets you made?

wow... i have not been on in a while....

always updating my bike though.

re-did the entire front end and electrical system.

Swapped the bike over to Buell 1125 CR forks and am now using my own designed and machined Billet triple trees. These trees incorporate a GRP radial steering damper tucked under the handlebars with a custom frame mount. Risers are my own design and have passages with removable inner plates for all the wiring to run. All wiring is in the handlebar. Top bar clamp houses 3 buttons, indicator lights, and my motogadget miniscope speed. The bike has been completely rewired using a motogadget M-unit, m-lock wireless ignition, m-buttons housed in my own designed and machined housings, and a m-button inside the fatbars. Also running a Buell "Prototype" Billet ZTL2 front caliper, Aluminum oil tank, and Billet headlight housing with a JWSpeaker LED insert.

That's an awesome looking Buell you got there. Has to be the coolest one I've ever seen.

What did you do to secure your gas tank and panel inserts on the front? I have a 99 also and I've always just zip tied it down but yours looks like it's all nicely screwed into place. How would I go about doing such a thing?

Your vision, in all its formats has been a joy to follow, and I suspect that there just might be more in the works. Kudos to you and your fab skills, thank you sir.
