    I like the 2 cans, a bit GP

    As you say it would be boring if we were all the same

    Your post was waiting approval as you only made 4 posts but should clear once you get posting. Its just to stop new users posting crap

    I have altered your pics to show direct

    cheers

    Thanks Blackie,i had trouble remembering whether i was a member or not then there was the password etc...i have a memory of a fish lol.hi Doogalman,the swingarm is a standard arm but 'wrapped' in sheet aluminium for the GP7 MotoGp look.In fact im a massive fan of Stoner (hence the number) and Ducati whether it be Gp or WSB.The whole modification was on a budget with the idea of making it different but cheaply in my shed lol.It was standard before this except for some race cans and rear sets but the body was looking a little tired.It was either clean up or change completely.It took me 2 yrs of pondering and balls to do it.I love an SS from certain angles but i reckon front on its a little dated.Oh,and had this been a Superlight i wouldn't have done it .It helps being a welder too.

    List of mods are shortened rear frame painted at home in Alfa Romeo Rosso red,strengthened headstock tubes,Hiroshi Aoyama replica seat unit trimmed to suit with bespoke plate/light hanger,plated swingarm,standard wheels,cheapo fleabay rearsets,916 head unit with projector lights,Acewell digital dash,modified/tidied loom,dynojet kit,k&n,lightened flywheel,aluminium clutch basket,braided brake lines with shorty levers,race clip-ons and bespoke 2 into 2 exhaust with small 'race' type cans,re built top end with a Baines rehone.All built in the shed lol....the only thing i didn't do was the white paint and the honing.

    If i am honest i like it as it is and its been done for a couple of years now but i am still debating whether to change the look again and re-do the exhausts as these look good but are just too noisy.The next system will hopefully bring the boom back and i will link the two again.I am in two minds to go for a fairing or an 848 head unit with Aprillia RSVR style seat or go the other way for a cafe racer look but i think that look is getting a little common amongst builders these days.

    Idle hands and all that

    Good info - I like that. I too was going to ask about the Swingarm as NCR used to do a similar looking item.

    Well done, nice work.

    Oh yes, its of help - I have an SS board of my own, just for info really:

    Allways prefer the low budget built in sheds Specials. Anyone can go out with a blank cheque book and build something by bolting loads of add-ons to something and calling it special. Or worse still pay someone to build THEIR special. oxymoron or what??

    Too true.Its a fact if i had more money i would still do it at home if i could as that's half the fun.I would still do some bespoke stuff but maybe buy the odd trick bit if it was out of my comfort zone.
    Mind you i would still love a Superlight in the shed too,or maybe in the front room
