Wow, want to make me a subframe? I was working on one to put a Monster seat on my dad's SV1000 but it won't look anywhere near as nice as yours.

Also, let me know if you're looking to get rid of the vrod headlight

I'm with him, I have a monster seat and I'm about to hack up my 1st gen sub frame, are you looking to make money off making custom sub frame's???

I will totally sell the vrod headlight, i have the ballasts for the headlights as well its an hid set up but you might need new bulbs. aside from that when it worked it was super bright. way brighter than my dual aztecs. whats it worth ?

Yeah, even at a really low hourly rate I can't pay for 100 hours of work - I'm sure you understand. It's just a badass subframe so of course I want one.

Didn't realize it was HID, does it have a projector installed or is it just an HID bulb/ballast in an otherwise stock headlight? Don't know what it's worth.

its just the headlight housing with the bulbs and two ballasts that were mounted in front of the airbox under the tank. I found some for sale online, new they go for like $200 for like a stock replacement. id sell it to ya for like 70 bucks, which would cover shipping as well

Love the exhaust.
Nice tail.
Don't like the headlights and screen.
Go get a Buell Set-up. Looks way better.
That's my opinion, of course.

Buell set up Would be awesome but they are hard to find and over priced. You find me a good deal on one and I'll buy it.

I ran both of the setups you're using on my bandit cafe homage, and the vrod is brighter and looks cooler than the dual lights. Sometimes simpler looks better.

I'm loving the subframe, very cool stuff.

I've got a Buell setup collecting dust :) don't have a spare flyscreen bracket etc or wiring, just the headlight itself, with a little scratch on one of the lenses.

I'll get pictures for you when I can.
