How were yer nuts after a longer ride RC-Devil?? :grin2:
My thought exactly.
While stylish (and I coped the photos for posterity as a result), the subframe is canted too high. The front of the rear cowl doesn't even meet the fuel tank evenly.
If the angle was reduced to a comfortable level, that would be a very nicely styled bike.

so how were your nuts? lol. I'm fine with the cowl not meeting the tank evenly but it being canted too high might be a problem. anyone actually seen one in person or ridden one? does it need an aftermarket subframe to make this happen? can't just fab a 1000rr tail on a stock subframe?

IMO it looks good from this sides but I think the tail is too slim and not proportional to the tank and front end (kinda reminds me of a helicopter). And also, from the pic, it looks like the back is raised too.... much load on the arm, no? But hey props for the built though... always love custom work 👍👍

Yeah, it's a love it or leave it type of mod.

Derril, I see where you're coming from. There are times when I look at my piggy and think, 'you're looking heavy in the hips ole girl'. The long sato lowmounts emphasize it.
:nerd:
