Forgive me if you already said, but what does that bike weigh?

IT is unique :thumbup: .
still not sure wether i like it or not. :thumbdown: :thumbup:
i keep changing my mind.
a very tidy bike which looks finished.(apart from carbs etc)
so many customs seem to have an unfinished look to them. 8-)

Yes it,ll be at the Rallies Once it's running.

I don't expect everyone to like it, that's kinda the thing with specials, sometimes other people's interpretation does not hit your sweet spot. For me I wanted to do a modern take on the original, hence the std Kawasaki-ish paintwork, rather than a copy of the original, I very nearly did it in the original blue H2 colours. But I definitely wanted that wasp wasted fat ass look to it. I am a bit Luke warm about the front mudguard, might look at that again, it's a bit too enclosed and too obtrusive. Have a V -rod headlight as an alternative too. But yes it's a little like Uma Thurman, fantastic from some angles, and a bit ooo...ummm from others.

with the engine mods it should be lively.....
