Oh yeah...that's looking really cool now...more aerodynamic. :wink:

Probably uncomfortable as all get out, but...

I think the current bar positioning would look cool with the headlight pointing out under the bars.

update time! :D i ended up changing the stem out for one a little less extreme. i`m running a tioga hydro mtb stem that gives it a bit cleaner look. also mounted the speedo at 12`oclock,like i had originally wanted to. finally mounted the moon tank/stash can set-up.bit of a tight fit! :wink: stole the chrome chain from my flightliner, and decided to leave the chainguard off. shows off the drivetrain a little more. space taillight is good to go! :D now i`m down to mounting the headlight,fabbing some brackets for the landing lights,and then the mysterious nuclear powerdrive unit! :D soon as nasa gives me access to the materials,i`ll start on it! :lol: :lol:

Very nice! I still like the new headstock. Still looks spacey. Is your stash can plastic painted silver or is it metal? It adds a nice touch. Very sharp looking bike.

Bike looks sweet!!

I'm glad to finally see someone else use that tea can. When ifitfreeitsforme used the Never Dull can as an oil tank, he and I went on a major search for something more generic.

I like the mix of the new and old. Nice details with all the black and chrome.
