    do you think it would look better with a hanger? It doesn't need one. Need someone to ride behind me on a really bumpy road, but to work and back theres some terrible bumps and no marks on swinger yet.

    Its a jester68 kit. This one had quite a bit of minor adjustment, the rear subframe that comes in the kit was also changed slightly. Essentially they are ready to bolt on, but they might not look as good as this. Griff really grafted on it.

    I did hardly anything. I put a newer shock on, a telferiser mount, and i put the rear lights and indicators and the foam seat pad on. Griff, mikey and louie did the rest, its a job enough to clean it and maintain it between services. I think they changed the subframe angle slightly and blended the jester plastics in better, if thats what you mean? I also 'designed' the paint, decided on widths of lines and angles etc.

    Simon, where did you get the bike photographed?
    I'm looking for somewhere to get my bike shot, although I was initially thinking a 'natural' location as it's cheaper than a studio! (i.e free)
