Hi stuna,

Can you post some close ups of how you mounted the windscreen. I am thinking of doing exactly what you did and want to see how you did it.

Also, would you consider building/selling a copy of your peg extenders. If yes, how much.

Thanks

Like the saddle bags, thanks for posting pictures, I'm 51 and dont like cruisers.

Same here....I don't like floor boards....

The shield is so wrong , the pegs are great idea , looks as if you used some angle iron and did a little bending and welding .
That seat , man looks comfortable . :thumbup:
My biggest grip is the handle bars , the angle is just to weird , was looking at replacing with Renthal Street Medium to get a better angle and be able to get a little reach backwards .
Looked at the extenders up and back ones , did you have to get new cables , brake line ?

I hope you have a dispenser for "Depends" on there.
And a medicine cabinet for Motrin, Aleeve and liniment oil.:D

the w/s may look $#$%%^ but im old enough to care more how it works , and that is does .
just a few years ago with a bad back and hips i though i would be done riding , as it hurt so bad . but back is fixed one hip is done. and im doing perty well with the other bad hip . 1 year old bike 10k on it . and i have two other bikes . you should see how odd my drz400 looks . big w/s and a russel seat . now thats a uuugly seat , BUT works so well :wav:

well i do have to stop for gas at 200 miles:mad:
I like some of the models of the Russell seats... I notice they don't have the 6R listed, just the FZ6... Did you use that as the ordering guide?

nope we took pics sitting on the bike and they build seats off of the pics
thats how they do it there all custom , they dont just make a seat and sell them . If i get the fz09 it will get a 2 up seat made for it

nice custom!

--I think that's awesome. You took a sport bike and made it your own. Lotta ppl do the same old same old but you made it comfy and functional. Good job man! I like it when ppl go their own way. It's your ride, you SHOULD customize it. So long as it makes you happy and you have fun with it. :thumbup:
