As I finally got word from the ever so pleasant to deal with insurance company that the bike would not be a write off, it was time to get the bike back on the road. I've been getting a little testy without being able to ride
Seeing my all my plastics were busted up and the windscreen disintegrated into hundreds of pieces and I dont even know where the slider went, I didn't have much to work with. I got our handy welder friend down at EMS to fab me up a bracket to hold the stock headlight and dash in place (both still functional, the headlight has a scuff but who cares, it adds to its street fighter cred!), zap strapped the turn signals on, and found an old yamaha bar mirror - voila! A streetfighter came into being! It's pretty mean looking, I must say. Though, it will be temporary. I'm going to clean it up and make it a nice naked bike - think ducati monster meets street triple. No more hints though, those developments are a secret and you'll have to wait and see what it changes to next!
So here's the pic of the once elegant ninja 650 dont be scared when you see me coming down the road, I'm not a stunter or in a rat pack I'll still wave back! (Pic is early before I got the signals and mirror on)
There is definitely a fence spike above the headlight. It completes the ensemble.
Fairings really muffle the engine, its so loud now! And cooks my legs even worse
