    Hello - before and after - still doing some front end work - gauges, headlight, mirrors, controls etc - to me the bike was cafe ish to start with and I wanted to leverage the good styling that was there so have just focused on improving / perfecting - shortened, narrowed seat (seat frame cut), smaller turnsignals and tail mounted taillight, lower bars, removed passenger footpeg frames and chainguard, cleaned up rear disc frame mounting, shortened an 80 rear fender, got and installed a KZ 10/2 front fender, etc.

    Such a shame to cut up a first year rare bike. Lots of threads in the forum on what your plans are as most these bikes seem to end up like this. You shouldn't have any problems with your mods. Good luck.
