Looks pretty good....better than some I have seen. What license plate relocator did you use? I need to get one.

Don't know if I'm ready to chop my frame though....

Nice dremel work. Use whatcha got! It is good to see all of the creativity out there w/ not everyone doing the same thing. Nothing is worse than having matching monsters.

Very clean! Great example of intuitive style. Can you post a pic of the L-Bracket showing where it mounts it to the frame? I am having a similar dilemma with my tail but was not creative enough to think of using the existing plastic. A simple pattern or rough outline of the tongue would be nice too (showing roughly where to mount the turn signals). Then I can get back to work on my tail end. Those buns-of-steel videos I left playing in the garage all night havent been working; mabye my duc's got a secret stash of twinkies...
Thanks

Its hard to get a good shot of the L bracket since I painted them black... Its really easy though. Just use the 2 bolts that the inner fender bolts too. I used longer bolts of course and remember that these bolts are NOT symetrical. The left bracket will have to be bent slightly to fit. My suggestion is to get everything bolted up losely then bend the bracket to fit. The brackets I used are from Home Depot... 1.5 in L's. Cutting the plastic piece is quite challenging but I can go through it with you on a PM if youd like. Basically you just have to be pretty good with the dremel to get everything symetrical and just how much you cut will depend on your tail chop.. some people leave more frame showing. I think my frame is cut to the maximun without messing with the seat lock.

That looks very clean. How does it look on the side with the seat lock?

Have you modified the tail light to shine white light rather than red on the license plate? I purchased a small piece of clear plexiglass, cut it to shape and cut an opening in the red plastic underneath, then glued the clear piece in place. That eliminates the possibility of being hassled for an improper license plate light.

Will that work on an '00 900? From the pics I've seen of the '00, tail looks very similar to yours.

Of all of the tail treatments I've seen, I think yours looks the best! I love the way it still has a "factory" look to it. But with the tail still gone!

Here's a pic of the tail section of my soon to be delivered bike (man, the next 10 or so days are tough - like a kid before Christmas!)



Not sure if you can tell much from the pic, though.

I sure hope I can do something similar to yours. Perfect! ;D
