Really clean bike.  Lots of subtle touches.

Thanks Scott, I agree with you, small details make a bike your own.

Hi Wildbill,
The guys name is Coxy, he charged me $400.00 to make and custom fit it to the bike.

Hi kc Royal,
I used the swing arm cap the bike comes with, I just had to reshape it to fit the radius shape of the RE fuel cap cover, I used a 2 PAC glue to attach, then after the glue has harden, I pushed the cap on using a little silicon, so no one steals it.

Hi Bill,

Welcome to the Forum, and thanks for sharing the pictures of your bike, really great Job, yes I believe all "RE" Guys and Gals are really great people after all its the "great taste" we all have in common.
I was wondering where you purchased the Tail/brake light and the emblem below the brake light from, I would love to put that on my bike if possible....
Cheers
Mark
