The Special bit...

This is, without a doubt, the most special bit I have on my bike.
I made this a while ago, dedicated to my late uncle, J. L.
I cut a good quality aluminum stripe, the flame design was drawn by hand, mirrored and inverted for the left/right sides to be symmetrical.
Then the dificult part begun. This little piece was all made by hand. And I mean "oldschool by hand".
It was entirely hand cut, hand filed, hand sanded and hand polished by myself.
No, it's not perfect like CNC machines do, but that's why it's called "hand made".
R.I.P, Jonny, thanks for being a part of my life.

Rear sets

I removed all the stock footpegs, foot controls and brackets/plate/support.
I made two triangle shaped support plates from Naval quality aluminium.
Attached them to the frame as you can see.
I used complete stock rearsets assembly from a '94 Yamaha YZF750R.
One mounting point on the aluminium plate, the other on the frame.
I made an extra hole in the custom plates to alter the footpegs position further back if wanted.
I rebuilt the stock YZF750 Brembo rear brake master cylinder and gave it an slight buff for extra shine.
I made the brake fluid reservoir from one of those cheap aftermarket fuel filters. Think it looks good enough.

The seat

Well, the seat was still in its original 1992 cover (upholstery).
Very worn out and slippery.
I had the foam carved and shaped to my personal taste ages ago, but the cover was still the original one.
I had the seat reupholstered by a friend whom I frequently assist and service on his custom bike projects.
This is not a state-of-the-art job, but I think it's good enough, mainly because it costed me next to nothing. :-)
