Decided to take the flare out of the end of the fender, and then decided to put it back haha. Also decided it looked a little unfished so I welded a wire edge around the whole fenderhttp://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f38/dennyrconner/1EEE89BB-7536-42A2-92D9-7F6EF4628F14_zpstmjnvrbg.jpeg (http://s44.photobucket.com/user/dennyrconner/media/1EEE89BB-7536-42A2-92D9-7F6EF4628F14_zpstmjnvrbg.jpeg.html)http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f38/dennyrconner/BE5E225E-1E1E-4FC2-B633-0FC5A593B07B_zpsrbjrnbrq.jpg (http://s44.photobucket.com/user/dennyrconner/media/BE5E225E-1E1E-4FC2-B633-0FC5A593B07B_zpsrbjrnbrq.jpg.html)http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f38/dennyrconner/E5F6348E-1E10-42A2-8F4B-DEFA2D6907F0_zpsfjjvd349.jpg (http://s44.photobucket.com/user/dennyrconner/media/E5F6348E-1E10-42A2-8F4B-DEFA2D6907F0_zpsfjjvd349.jpg.html)

I made a small tray to hold the battery and fuse panel that fits under the seat and won't be seen with the seat onhttp://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f38/dennyrconner/50F4B6AB-DA1F-4EFF-97CA-9D1128D364BF_zpsf0f7peri.jpg (http://s44.photobucket.com/user/dennyrconner/media/50F4B6AB-DA1F-4EFF-97CA-9D1128D364BF_zpsf0f7peri.jpg.html)

This is how it sits right now. I made the clip on bars too but can't seem to find the pictures, if I track them down I will post them herehttp://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f38/dennyrconner/5033B479-7EA5-4ADE-B460-623DB152DE8A_zpsrkba39df.jpg (http://s44.photobucket.com/user/dennyrconner/media/5033B479-7EA5-4ADE-B460-623DB152DE8A_zpsrkba39df.jpg.html)

My knees would hit me in the face on that thing. I am 6'4" though.

Ya the person I'm building it for is shorter, but not much probably around 6 foot.....but I'm 6'5" and am actually fairly comfortable on ithttp://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f38/dennyrconner/453D93B9-C06A-46C9-86E5-96D9CC5B2957_zpsv0ia53tx.jpg (http://s44.photobucket.com/user/dennyrconner/media/453D93B9-C06A-46C9-86E5-96D9CC5B2957_zpsv0ia53tx.jpg.html)

Man I dig it. Nice stance.
What tank is that and did u add any length to the frame?
I'm also 6'4" but figured I'd be way too tall for a bike that size
