Great job mate!! Reminds me of mine-used to call it Silver Storm-Gosh! i miss it!!
But i would agree that you might colour the crash guard in matte black aswell as its looking out of place, dont remove it though, it had saved my leg once in a bad crash!!

well the bike could look better with the following changes,

karizma alloys with the bigger disk plate.
a round ambition head light for the retro look. other wise the karizma's inside dome not the currently fixed pulsar's does not suit for sure.
if possible a mono shock.

@Nitin - yes bro.. am going in for stickers..as you said..very few.Guess i'll go on with a red tone as suggested by JPL. Adi poli on the make. hehe,,

@dhaval - y spoked rims mate?? to give s chrome touch??

@ abhik - yes mate.. will paint the crash guard also in matte black. and thanks for the complements..

@ rider60 - bhai.. but if am going in for a bigger disk plate, i will have to change the existing front shock absorbers,,na? I dont think a new disk plate and alloys would fit into my buget now. But monoshocks will be fitted soon. thanks for the suggestion bhai.. will keep that diskbrake and alloys thing in mind.

@amitwiz1 - no bro... no more CBZ sticker. Might go for a HONDA sticker in red. what say?

Honestly speaking, its not looking good, looks very dull. As mentioned by some other members either you should have kept original or do some cromification.

Hey the bike looks cool. I love the naked look .
For starters post pics of this bike in the Photoshop Digital Art thread and let our guru's come up with their ideas.
I am sure you wont be let down by the folks there.

Pick on what you think is the best design and implement it.

Once again good going.

Get the original CBZ stikers(i am running Honda stikers from last 5 years and not happy with that going to put CBZ stikers back to get its cult image)
Replace headlamp cowl with CBZ ones, alloy if you need then try Kari or CBZ Xtreme ones, rest is fine.

Stay away from the Faux lower fairing (engine covers), they cause the bike to run very hot, specially in traffic. Looking at a host of things going wrong.

If you must try and put a bikini style fairing.

Cheers

wischvuanaudh, great job some suggestions from my side

1) Alloys are not justifying for the looks, from the picture it seems that alloys are heavy in size , replace them with cbz extreme or kariazma alloys and with cbz extreme's disc set up.

2) replace your crash guard with extreme's crash guard(matt black finish) instead of repainting the old one.

3) Paint your cams in silver colour it would really match your killer looks

Not good in photoshop but just tried for you just paint the silencer guard and cams in silver it would look awesome.

wischvuanaudh.

Great effort in getting the bike blacked out. You have a few options to complete the theme.

Get some chrome to balance the dull body black. Take a look at my profile on how Honda did it on their naked bike aka the hornet.

If you want a streetfighter look sans the bikini fairing the headlight have to be a complete unit. You current pulsar oner are a definite no-no. You can do side by side duals ala the Brits or go the Italian way and have them vertically stacked.

1. Fork mounted clip-ons.
2. Rearsets
3. Remove guard
4. Powdercoat exhaust/silencer
5. Remove the registration plate bracket housing.
6. If possible, use the headlamp fairing and make it smaller by cutting it appropriately.

P.S. Did you paint most of the stuff black, to hide flaws?! The exhaust, side stand, brake linkage look rusted.
