list of things to do lol

1) HURRY and remove those SLIDERS looks like someone decided to drill a hold in the frame and mount it there... i would def. remove them from that spot and mount them on the main part of the frame... or you could end up bending ur frame in a fall...
2) Non fuzzy seat covers lol

and those seats remind me of furry toilet lid covers.

Love the silver and black. It does look like they drilled through the frame to put those sliders on. Sliders are suppose to through an engine mount bolt. Not just a hole in the frame. I know they did it that way cause they didn't want to cut the fairings but if your going to do it do it right. If I were you I would get rid of the sliders ASAP A) cause the look awful B) In case of a fall I see those doing more harm then good by flipping the bike. It looks like he put those on AFTER the bike fell on the right side. Get a set of Vortex or Woodcraft and cut the fairings then you'll be set.

Was this guy a hippie? I mean seriously who puts **** carpet on the seats. At least he did both to match. Get rid of that ASAP. If I were you when you redo them you might want to add a little extra padding to the seat as to no hurt your bum on long rides.

I like to chrome rims. I think it sets off the bike nice. Interesting place for the license plate. Haven't seen it on the passenger peg before. But if it works leave it. Also I would look into a smoked DB windscreen. It would make it look sweet.

I noticed there was no chain guard. I would look into getting one as to not get your pants caught in it cause that would be horrible but also to not fling grease/dirt on your pants.

Sorry for the long post. Nice pick up.

i say you re-cover the seats, but make the rest of the bike that fuzzy material. it'd be unique...i'm just saying.
