After a year of efforts I've finally finished my first custom bike build and I'm super stoked how it turned out. This has been the first week shaking it down and decided to take it out this morning for a quick ride d/t with one simple set up (body + 50mm). These aren't the most well thought out pics but I wanted to share anyway. Hope you enjoy!

Nice shots and nice bike too! (Probably belongs in Transportation, rather than motorsports though ;-)a )

I'm also into custom/cafe bikes here's mine:

Nice bike, but this one doesn't look sharp?

I sure did. Only the motor and final drive were left stock, everything else was customized to fit alternate and newly designed parts. Its was a fun build, thank you to everyone for the positive feedback.
