Not been entirely sure I liked where this was going, or entirely sure where that was either.

The sun was out for the first time in a while, so I wheeled it outside to get a look at it.

Not too bad, but that grille in the side panel has to go. Looks weird with the motor fins....

i like that exhaust. it may be the angle of the picture, but i would get the rear fender closer to the tire like the front.

I might have done that if it was shaft drive, but if you gotta move the wheel to adjust the chain.....

Thats the best fit I could get out of that mudguard allowing for wheel adjustment. Flat fenders are a pain in the ass for that, the lack of depth in the sides just makes it look gappy from some angles.

NICELY DONE.... i like what you did and agree that the side panels are cutting it. Keep up the good work

them pipes are sick, curious how well it would look run like that on both sides with four pipes instead of four into two.
