Hi all, a few pictures of my finished bike, I used it last year and it's a fully working, no issue bike. New tyres on and MOT tomorrow. Love this bike and have decided to do another project. This time with a single sided swingarm and as yet in decided body work. Any ideas?

Beautiful job. Did you end up coming up with a "ram air" solution to your radiators? Just curious, im hunting for ideas for mine.

Thanks for all the positives, appreciated. I don't mind any constructive critisicm either so fire away.VTR squid Yes I used the ram air inlet on the blade fairing to channel air to the radiators via some hoover pipe style ducting. Nothing fancy I will load pictures when I get chance. The bike runs at a nice 85'C which i think is about right. Have you fitted a blade kit on your bike?

Oh thanks. Yeah i wouldnt mind seeing how you did that. No, im not running fairings at all on mine but always interested to see ideas on how to get more air through the rads, especially since we get regular 40c days in summer down here.
