    The bike looks amazing! The only thing that is bugging me a little bit is the rear light placement. It reminds me of Porsche's placement of mandatory "Dole lights" on 911s when the brake lights were mandated by the DOT back in 85 or whenever. They had them mounted in all sorts of weird places especially on the cabrios-
    I absolutely love the color of the tank. It is perfect. The seat might accent that color better in a super super dark matte grey- the brown doesn't really work with the rest of the palette to my eye- but that's personal preference and no one ever accused me of having perfect aesthetic sensibilities!

    Chapeau Todd! Well done.

    Thanks! I chose the Ferrari-esque LED light and placement based on the style of the light, and the fact that all of the tail lights were simply bolted to the sheet metal of that era, and in the end, a nod to below.
    As to seat color, I tried one other light tan (posted earlier in this thread), and was very unhappy with it. I considered the Ron Burgundy (bottom image), but settled on the middle image after considering using alcantara suede. My seat maker is also a horse saddler, so I went with the construction and color of the most popular used. It is impressively good in person as everyone comments on it. ;)

    Looks like your custom shaping the exhaust pipe tips.
