like the seat on cb 200 but not the 2into 1 or the way the frame just ends under the seat,2nd photo, the silencer is too short in my opinion &i don't like the rear light down there on green bike,otherwise quite nice

that red bike might be a 400/4, engine looks quite wide. a dunstall 4 into 2 would look great on that & a loop welded on to follow the line of the seat. i like it ! i'd probably have a go at lowering clocks & headlight as well.

Thanks man. Yes, that was a rather pricey custom order and took nearly a year to receive but in the end I think it was really worth it.

Godffrey, I just LOVE your perspex timing covers, do you make them yourself or is there a company your side of the pond that supplies them?

pauliexjr,
Those are made buy a guy I know on another list here in the U.S. but he has stopped making them (for now) we've been hounding him to start up again. I'll post something here if he dose.
