Really like the look!

The air filter looks cylindrical, not conical.  Do you know the part #?

If I might make one suggestion, and I don't even know if it's possible, chrome the rear fender/seat support.  it's big and bulky and looks a little obtrusive in black.  I'm not even sure you can remove that part of the frame on a G5 though.

Love the look of the old style triangular tool boxes and the Deluxe tank!

The air filter is cylindrical. I'm noit at work so I'll get he part number for you when I can. It's a near perfect fit.

On a related note...I should have the new Royal Enfield specific part number in the next few weeks for the K&N filter that fits INSIDE the stock airbox. It's going to be a slightly tapered filter to fit over the brackets and yet still inside the top plate.

I was just looking through tapered filters by dimension on their site tonight.  Several filters from 80cc 2 stroke dirt bikes would fit in the current box but none would fit under the retrofit airbox.  Glad to hear this is on the way.  Thanks!  And please keep us posted.

Thank you, that sounds very interesting!

You guys did a great job on this bile, love the look. Particularly like the exposed air filter, what did you do with the crankcase breather here?

It's just hard to see in pics but it's connected by hose to a K&N crankscase filter.

Not exactly.  I meant  the platfrom on the G5 that supports the passenger seat.

Found this on the forums while searching for something else, it's on an Electra but looks like a similar frame and what you are talking about:

Cool!  So it is a detachable subframe.  Thanks!
