Default XR1200 photoshop request

Can one or more of you photoshop-chop gods try a little tweaking here, please. Put wire wheels on it, remove the turn signals, reflectors and mirrors; add two-into-two high pipes; then mold the seat into the tank and take out that gap that is breaking up the tank/seat flow. Just seeing if a few mods will get it more "Stortz" looking, thanks!
Or you can tell me to learn how to do it your own damn self, or whatever...
EDIT: The Motorcycle news video with Adrenalinemoto showed me everything, sans high pipes and wire rims. I like the bars on their test bike better too.

Bars are Lucas 'Streetfighter' bars and are much more comfortable than the stock 'chopper' handlebars.

Two into two high level pipes won't fit the XR1200 (yet) because the right side footrest/mastercylinder brackets get in the way. The only way to fit them may be to get a set of Storz 08 XL rearsets, which have a diferent master cylinder arrangement, although the pegs will be lower than the stock XR1200 pegs.

Not sure if any of the standard H-D wire wheels will fit the XR, as it uses a different width swingam and forks, although brake disc mountings are the same as the rest of the range.

Thanks, that helped; I went to your site and saw that project bike closer, very trick stuff for sure. I like the lower profile and shape of the Lucas bars; Looks better and more ergo for higher performance riding. Stortz or Supertrapp will have some high pipes out soon the grapevine seems to think; but those on your test ride are definately killer! I like the bigger air scoop as well.
