It DOES look like it could have been a factory prototype or special edition! Meeting all my expectations PLUS.
Paintjob is first class, you do it yourself? Great color, please change your name to 'Cold Root Beer' now.

All my products simply have to look like they have just left factory, it's just the way I do my job ...
I do all the work myself: design, metal work, paint prep, painting. I do not mess with engine, have a friend that does it for me ...
Cold Beer is my favourite band from Croatia, they are from my neighbourghood, and it is my nick on online gaming and on forums, nothing to do with drinking, I am a wine lover ...

So, about a paint ... I really havent liked it on first look, it was way too kitchy for my taste, but customer wanted exactly that paint (serial on Mazda CX5 , I think).
After few days I am beginning to like it ... today I finally took her outside and assembled The ass.
Take a look:







one "floater"



yep, behind her is another Great ass ...



legshield trim is on ...



detail from the handlebar:




So, I have to ask you: What ass is nicer?

This one:

OK,surely this isn't gonna be mag lev or anything weird like that. How about a peek or some info about what's gonna fill that large cavity I see under the back end here?

I'm still on board here, watching & waiting. I know I run off at the mouth a little sometimes, but somebody said it all in just one word - GLORIOUS.

jep, still waiting for engine to emerge from mechanic. Standard PX 150 will be first engine, maybe some mods later, but nothing special

Its a cruiser, not a racer

Looking good!!

Do the bar end indicators use the original system (tube inside the throttle and gear tubes) or have you come up with another way of mounting them?

You mean the Sopranos dictionary is wrong? Sacrebleu!

The word "comare", which is the only one correct in plain Italian, does simply mean "godmother", "maid of honor" or, more often, "old friend", especially if a neighbour. But is alost not anymore in use, in fact only some older woman are still addressed as "comare".
The male form is "compare", and is more used, with the menaing of "fella".
"Comare" as "gossip" is used in English language, not in Italian, since "comare" is more likable used with the meaning of "gossipy"; so not the gossip but the person who spread gossip.

bodywork is astonishing.
the switches/grips/indicators and the seat should be revised.
the horn cover is a masterpiece.
great job all in all but for some details.
