I don't think anyone on this forum has posted up a build thread, but this one (<<click here) has always seemed nice to me.

I think he did a great job. The only thing is that the KLR engine looks huge and sort of out of place. It's just an aesthetics thing, though.

There's something a bit funky about that clutch cover, too. Paul? What's that notch by the clutch actuator for?

Others are not so, um, well executed...

Without fully reading, I thought you meant that picture was a great job. I just kept scratching my head as your posts are usually insightful. I wanted to say, "Your outta your damn mind" sorta like Rueban in Oceans 11. Then I saw the link, and yes, thats a damn nice job at a cafe racer considering the KLR was used, LOL. Though after that pic you posted almost anything would be.

I thought about omitting the picture, as it could be confusing. It was just too special not to include, though.
