This dude did a nice job on this thing! And he's using one of the cowling / front fairings from that site I posted up a while ago...

Wow that is impressive.

I really liked seeing the progress pics - I didn't know you could do that kind of sleek work with fiberglass on your own. Really gets my creative juices flowing but in reality I'll probably end up buying more stuff than making it myself.

Thanks for posting this link.

Pretty slick. That's really nice. What kind of exhaust is that that he has on there? I'd like to do that with mine. And the pipes too, but I'd rather powder coat them black.

Just a minor point - this cafe'd bike has a ceramic coating on it's headers. (Often refered to as "Jet-coating", though that's a brand name.) You can get ceramic coating done in a variety of colors including black.

Powder coating will NOT work on headers; the pipes get too hot for it. It'll flake off within a short time...

Thanks for clearing that up sportieboy. I was considering getting mine powder coated b/c I have a friend who can do it... it definitely looks like ceramic is the way to go, but probably costs more.

I currently have them painted black with header paint... but the look isn't all that great.
