That looks like fantastic work!  Any pics with it on the bike?

Mattsz, I couldn't find deflectors I liked.  However based on the size of most commercially available ones and also based on what accessories were available we settled on the tank pads. They have the logo on them and follow the lines of the tank alread so all he has to work out are brackets. He is basing his design off the national cycle hand deflector brackets. With modifications, because it is impossible to leave well enough alone.

I'd love to see some pics...

Is it a tool case?  Where does it go, on the fender behind the seat?


A picture of my bike before installation of the roll-tools just made:



That saddle bag is cool!  Google translation, "eccezionale"!!

Other fancy stuff I wouldn't expect to see on a B5:
  • Is that a C5 tank?  The fuel fill is very different than ours...
  • Nice striped front fender!  And striped "battery" cover
  • A fish-tail end attached to the OEM silencer?
  • Is that a grab handle between the seats?

Very nice bike! I see you left the number one tool on the floor! But, what are the cans you made for?

Beautiful bike. But I just got to know where you got that fishtail pipe. I want one. Looks like an old Velocette.

First of all thank you for the compliments.
I did not come because I could not find a section for presentations.
I would also say that I find very difficulty in reading the letters for verification of message to send.

Step to answer the questions:
- bags have been constructed using an aluminum sheet with a thickness of 1.2 millimetri.Shaped by hand with a rubber mallet as he sensed Barenekd .
-the last my creature is the roll -tools that I installed behind the passenger seat .
- the bike is a B5 Standard and , among other things , I changed the tank with one of Chrome on a site purchased online . The petrol tank is indian made ​​and done completely by hand.
- I put the solo seat because I like the most and am in tune with the ancient line of moto.For to install the seat back frame I built a very imile to that of the Classic Crome or to prevent the weight can become a burden on fender.
the gold - striped on front and rear fenders and battery cover  have been made ​​of thin PVC adhesive from a craftsman who builds self-adhesive labels and advertising signs .  I also built the stainless steel edge protection on the lids of the battery cover.
-The fish-tail end in not  attached to the OEM silencer, but the silencer but was completely built in stainless steel, using stainless steel tubes.I built the terminal using a stainless steel sheet made ​​from a tray for dentist ( borrowed from my brother :D).I found that very ductile metal
- I also built in aluminum plate holder and the fron number plate in iron.
-also the side stand is made ​​of stainless steel.
I post some pictures;

Sweet!  I thought the silencer must have been modified, since the original heat shield is there!  But no reason you can't use it if you're making your own silencer...

Looking good!

Nice!

I see it as a styling re-creation of the older Iron Barrel models, and very nice custom hard-side baggage.
Looks very nice, and clean work.
