Top job, nothing flashy just a very nice clean minimalist look, personally I like nekked bikes as it is nice to see the engine - shame to hide all that lovely engineering behind plastic.

Holy poop! I have been following your build and it's an amazing looking bike but that's a lot of money!

They are Koso Stinger LED indicators purchased from. http://www.digital-speedos.co.uk/. I spent a long time in choosing them, some LED blinkers look good but aren't bright enough (for me anyway). The originals are a bit big but lets face it they let others see your intention. I have to say these are really bright! I'm super impressed with them. I bit costly but not ridiculous given their purpose.

Thanks. And thank you for the clocks idea. The speedo in the headlight (the exact speedo to be precise) was unashamedly robbed from your build, which is very nice build by the way!

No problem....your not hijacking the thread! It's all good interesting stuff! I see this as all part and parcel of talking bikes. Reading these pages and everyone's comments (before I became a member) helped me produce the bike (which is why are started the thread, as a thanks to all how unknowingly gave me the ideas / inspiration)....without random conversations and threads that expanded many of the mods I did may not have been done. So thanks again and carry on guys!
