My build -Cheapskate

I won't bore you with pictures of a factory bike. We all know what they look like.
Ordered a 1199 flat rate linkage and shock from POCKEE999 here on the forums.
Removed the coil spring to powder coat it. Figured I would file the casting flash off the mounts and linkages.



Drilled the rear sets and levers, always liked that look. Painted the shock reservoir, and the bump stop.


Fabbed up a plate mount. Was able to re use the original plate light with some trimming!




Removed the exhaust. Trimmed all the tabs and brackets associated with the heat shield. Also completely removed the flapper valve and its pivoting shaft. Shipped it off to be ceramic coated black. Due back this week so I'm pretty excited about that


Cored the mufflers,

Got the screens from phL. Took it up a notch and welded them to the cans, rather than the intended rivets. I think it makes it look a little bit more finalized. -I would not recommend doing this looking back on it.

I painted the wheels, made mirror block off plates, and changed the grips a week or two after I bought it but can't seem to find any pictures of that process.

It's not totally complete just yet. Once the exhaust is back I will do final assembly and soon enough I will have some track action shots..

Totally jealous you have the shop/skills to do this. Very cool. Just out of curiosity, any concerns on the integrity of the drilled levers?

No plans to powder coat krissrock. I like the look of the brushed aluminum. I did shoot some flat clear on them for protection though.

I don't have any doubts about the levers integrity under normal use. If I go down I expect them to break, but that will be the least of my worries at that point.

I like how you got rid of the heat shield. That pipe color goes well with the wheels. +11111

Need to wheel it out to the shop to disassemble the stock rear shock and install the 1199 pieces.
