Some of the exhaust has some rust spots on it. also had to add onto it . so it hides all that. Plus it looks cool. as far as fenders go. I like it without.

That's nice, like the colour scheme and the black wrap goes well against the orange. cheers

Very nice! What's that finish on the engine looks textured?? Like those wheels as well, really suit the bike.

The paint is from VHT its called krinkle . its also for up to 350 deg so it holds up very well on the engine.
