    I guess he really wanted a KTM?

    Nice! Dutch orange!
    Just my 2 cents : the grey wheels...mmm,not my thing
    Vent behind the radiators,the newer types look better and are a simple swap.

    Awesome! Are the wheels painted/powder coated silver or are they stripped and clear-coated?

    Great job!




    But I wonder why he left off the mid fairings ... maybe going for that naked look

    Good job on the fairing there, hack saw was it? Looks very nice indeed, needs some blue OZ wheels though, they'd really compliment the orange.

    Yep, the fairing was a 'mark it out with pen and cut down the line' type affair with an air hacksaw. The wheels are powder coated silver. The rear shock linkages are changed for mille ones to lift the rear. I have already told him that the fans need to be the later flat ones but he's looking at some custom made covers to suit the ones that are on there. It isn't completely finished yet as there are some mods to be done to the exhaust run under the chain.A new link pipe is being fabricated to give the desired clearance , as the swingarm sits at a different angle to previously. The paint is expensive Lamborghini two tone stuff.
    Just thought you might like to see it as it only got bolted together yesterday.
