looks like standard carbs with pod filters. Whose bike is that? I 'd like to know what way he jetted the carbs as I'm trying to do something similar.

I see a kickstarter. Is there not enough clearance for it to work?

I've always liked that seat on that bike, to me it fits the style perfectly. He did a good job blending the filler panels, so that they look good. The entire tail section looks tits!

As for the front upper, no not for me. If it were mine I'd have a TZR enclosed rectangular unit mounted. To me the round bubble light keeps the look trapped in the 70s.

The bubble light sort of pays homage to the 1985 Tech21 Suzuka 8 hour Taira FZR750. :)

Is this some kind of Japanese humor?

Where do you sit and where is the fuel tank?

I like the last one with the 3XV seat unit (tank?) and light alot, great color / pattern. If he had only filled the gap between seat unit and tank.
