Yeah, I should have said. Gale Enameling also did the hubs. They are candy blue over chrome silver. The rims are gloss black. I had my rims on my Kawi done last may and they hold up very well! You just have to be careful when tire changing, but you would also be careful with anodized rims.

Very nice. My first "real" bike was a 94 YZ125. Now pay some respect to the vintage, back to purple and white!!!! JK

I do have some extra material left over. The sewing part was easy, the stretching the seat over the seat frame took some time, but it is wrinkle free and should hold up pretty good. It may be slippery? ? Thanks for noticing. below are a couple before pics.

Great looking machine!

Did you notice how similar your rear suspension looks to what the 09 yzf has?
