Thread starter, it's a fine build you got yourself. Looks are subjective, don't mind the criticism. Cherish it and never get rid of it, you will be hard pressed to find another.
@xx. - like i said IMO. just as looks are subjective so are opinions. Iv never ridden a BM 650 so i wouldnt know what to compare an RD with. I never had a problem with the brakes on an RD although the bike could get a bit wavy at high speeds but mainly on uneven surfaces. Ill take your point about the brakes which I said has been overdone in this case. Twin disc setup from a busa?? that OTT. And as far as i can see there has been no work done on the chassis to address its handling. So that was exactly my point in saying what i said. Again thats just my opinion, but hey i could really make your day and say something dumber.

Overal nice execution. But like several others have suggested, please revert to OE headlights with OE indicators (long). However, if you want to retain the FZ headlight, go in for a tank (maybe an FZ tank itself) and lose that crashguard.

Could you please answer my queries below in bold..Thanks

23. New 5 AH Exide Sealed Battery: More details on this please. Is this the Exide Computer UPS battery by any chance?
25. RDD Fliters: UNI?
32. 60/55w Halogen headlamp : Why not 100/90w? Was the FZ headlight the bottleneck here?

It looks neat. Good restoration job IMO. Its not how the RD looks, its how it howls.

Performance figures ?
looks stunning . front brakes an overkill , it is too light to have busa brakes . take care while braking . round headlamp with projectors ?

Interesting job done! To the hardcore RD fan,this might seem a little vague (with the headlights etc), but the fact that everything blends in well makes this bike sharp looking! Good job!
