Thanks, guys! It's always an honor just to be nominated and in the company of so many white bikes this time! :)

My goal was to make a versatile bike: daily commuter; weekend twister; and touring champ. She's still a work in progress but has come a long way.

I had something like this in mind:

Came home with this:

And made it this:

She's not done yet <cough> bellypan <cough> among other things <cough> but here's the damage so far:


  • custom paint job – Alpine White 300
  • powdercoated hardware
  • reflective wheel rim stripes - dark yellow
  • DIY racing stripes
  • FE (Evotech)
  • OEM hugger
  • OEM radiator shrouds
  • OEM seat cowl
  • eBay mirrors w/ integrated turn signals
  • shortened signal stocks with clear lenses


  • Steve's aTRE
  • RideItMoto levers - shorties in black
  • Galfer stainless steel braided brake lines - white, front and rear
  • Tech Specs - snake skin
  • Sonic Springs - 0.85
  • slip-on exhaust - Leo Vince EVO 2 Ti
  • Penske triple clicker
  • Gilles rearsets
  • Osram Night Racer H4 bulb


  • SW-Motech luggage rack (top and sides)
  • Bags Connection tankbag ring
  • Givi A750 windscreen (touring)
  • SVRP clip-ons - 3.5" risers
  • QR tank pin and seat
  • Spencer's seat (
  • TeeRiver's garage remote wired to pass button
  • Givi V46 topcase with Admore Lighting harness (brake/turn signals)
  • Givi E360 sidecases
  • Throttlemeister
  • generic LED brake bar
  • angled valve stems
  • USB charger


  • eBay DR404 bellypan
  • Symtec heated grips kit

Haven't done anything but ride - and oil changes - this summer! ;D

Daily commuter:

Lightened up weekends:

Loaded up for touring:

day of purchase

Initial completion of the build

At Edisto Beach, just outside of Charleston, South Carolina

First off, thank you all for the support and nominations.
my sv started out as a pile of junk. only 5 bolts and one zip tie held the entire fairings and seat on. the rear brake pedal was broken, instead there was a hole drilled through what remained with a bolt and half a dozen nuts as a makeshift pedal. it had no front indicators and in the back it had these little led strips you couldn't even see at night.

After enlisting in the navy in May, 2011, I did not have accesses to my Sv, for some time, and while I had the down time and money not being spent, I decided to fund this little endeavor. It started out as just full fairing swap and ended up being a frame up rebuild with many new parts and some modifications to existing parts over more than 8 months. Now that the build is done and she has been hand delivered by my father(the primary builder while i was away) to my duty station in Charleston, she is getting plenty of riding time in sunny South Carolina.
Modifications(not including stock replacements due to wear or damage)
all powder coating done by Metroplex Kustoms
-fairing stay
-clip ons
-swing arm
-heel guards
-rear sets
-triple clamp

fairings from KG cycles

I normally do not like the first gen faired SV but Fatpad's looks amazing! I love your color combo. Good job on the build. Looks like you put a lot of work into it. You've got my vote.
