the mounting system for that headlight is indeed ugly, but there are other bikes with rectangular headlights that look pretty good.

Re: Clean and Simple II Virago

Ghetto subscribed... can't wait... any thoughts to using the GSXR front's for this build? Maybe that will be overkill for what you are thinking... I'd love to hear what "type" of bike you want to build. I think I remember them doing a cafe build with a similar bike on Cafe Racer (TV show). Can't wait to see what you are thinking.

Hey,
yeah the GSXR forks are for the build. They will be going together with custom triples, and a spoke 16" front wheel. it is going to be a cafe racer with a blend of modern and retro (hopefully)

i am aiming for a combination of this:


and this:


custom frame, custom tank, custom tail. some performance mods on the engine...

Gotta love the typhoon! Can't wait to read more of this build! I followed the CBR build! Can't wait to see what you can do with it!
