Noticed someone had pinned your bike on pinterest.  I repinned it, and here it is: http://pinterest.com/pin/61854194853884962/

Great bike, but they got it with the mags - I think it looks a ton better with the spokes!

Very cool..  Does the passenger peg setup on these use the stock Passenger peg bracket??


The passenger pegs are from Motocarrera. I had to machine and add an aluminum riser between the stock passenger bracket and the Motocarrera pegs to clear the pipe

That looks like an RZ or GSXR side stand .  What is it?

It's a ninja 250 sidestand.  Short, straight, tucks in nice and no crazy lean angle.

Used the HVC relocation kit with a 2007 ninja 250 sidestand,
#1 -Cut it half way through at #1, bent it forward then welded it.
#2 - Welded hook for spring
#3 - Cut and welded assist bar to decrease length
#4 - Added plate to foot to match original kickstand size and shape then gouund it smooth

 :clint:    Thanks for the shots of the pegs.  To be honest I've decided on Nick's (Vintage Smoke's) pegs.  I'm getting an extra set of pegs and we talked about a few ideas for mounting.  I'll be milling a passenger peg plate sometime over the winter and will have to put tabs in to mount it, but it should look factory and match the plates that Nick's rear-sets use if all goes right...   
Love the pics though.  Man I want a set of radial heads...  BAD. :swoon:

Your bike is absolutely gorgeous!!!  Tell me more about the spoke wheels, I"ve always wanted spokes on my 400.

One of the nicest builds I've seen!

Thanks, appreciate it,

Here's a link to the spoke wheel set up vs mags
