Lololol Well then! Yur in good company. For I am a "Jack of all trades, Master of some!" Some members here have done some AMAZING stuff to their Birds. And depending on your creativity, time, tools, work area, mech/elec/cosmetic experience and finances, the sky's the limit. Give you a good example...


I had a new Mototech undertail. But when I needed to order another one the company was probably sold or put on hold to find a buyer. So had to rethink how I wanted my tail end to look!

I unfortunately made away with my bubble but tail light in my Fi and fitted the Carb Tail light but the smoked LED with integrated indicators. Then I took it out and put it in the the Carb. I then took the Carb's tail light, hacked it up and build a custom tail light for the Fi.
Thank you regarding the avatar bike. That is my daily ride, 98' Carb called "The Black Bike" which was supposed to be my stock bike........I honestly do not know what happened. then I have a Fi as well which is my custom show bike which you will see on here all the time.
