Welcome back.
Your bike appears to be leaking a bit of radiation.
Cool, I like it.  Makes the exposed pulley really stand out.

Hi Sheep, how're you finding the new bars...more comfortable?
Lights look sick btw.

I'm not usually one who likes all that auxiliary LED lighting, but....

Damn - that looks SWEET! I especially love the cutout on the pulley cover - the Tuning Forks are the perfect detail on the clear cover! 

How'd you do it?  I'm guessing you machined a lip on the plexiglass, to match a lip inside the cover and glued them together......  After a little sandblast to get the frosted Tuning Forks? 

Whatever - it looks COOL! ;D

Sweet! I dig the exposed pulley

What parts did you use for the lights? Separate switch, or on with the driving lights?

It sure is a good thing my bike doesn't know how much time I spend drooling over your bike black sheep. hahaha

Not really comfortable. I love the way they look on the bike. But I'm gonna go with either the biltwell trackers or the zero drag.
These bars are completely straight and hurts the wrist after awhile. So I definitely need to bend them myself or buy some new ones.

Thanks man! I used the CNC machine at my work to make the lexan piece. And I used a really strong double sided tape to keep it all together. I've had it on there awhile now and it's still holding.

It's a 10 piece kit I got for my birthday. It comes with a remote to turn it on and off. Change colors and stuff.
