at this point, i would be SOOOO tempted to install the clip-ons, rig some sort of bicycle crank on the engine mounting holes and peddle that sucker around the neighborhood.

Thanks for the kind words. The subframe started life as a stock MV subframe. "minor" modification has it fitting on a Gen 1 SV!
One of my goals was to make this bike without any "permanent" mods. Hard to believe maybe, but every mod is a bolt on relative to the SV. The subframe is one-off, as is the RC 30 swinger and all bodywork. But the SV could go back to stock.
Like that'll ever happen....

I don't think the forks are bent.

When you shoot with a point and shoot, and use the widest angle, you will get an anti-fisheye effect.

It's really noticeable on certain cameras and when you shoot something fairly vertical, it will look more obvious.

Forks are, indeed, '03 GSX-R 1K. And they're not bent.

Had thought about adding a chin spoiler but I like the 1/2 fairing look of the SVS model and I wanted to echo that look with a bit 'edgier' styling. We'll see how it all looks with paint. I can always build one later...
