Time for me to post some pictures of my beauty. I've had her for a couple of months now.

Just wrapped the sides of the tank with some 3M wrapping foil and installed a thank pad. Props to Flood's Project White for the inspiration!

If anyone's interested in this wrapping procedure, I've got pictures, so let me know.

Hey man, the bike looks nice, but could use some nice indicators imo, question about the exhaust, how much was it plus where did you get it from, 2nd question might be abit silly as you live in belgium

The exhaust was on the bike when I bought it. However I'm afraid the company that created them (Devil) is bankrupt. Original owner bought it for 420 euro according to the records. That was back in 2000 though.

You're right about the indicators, that's something I will change somewhere in the future. Original owner did put some smaller ones on the back.

In any case it's a work in progress and I see it as a hobby to keep tinkering on it.

Well perhaps they're still available, I think it's this one:

I think this Pipewerx can is pretty similar:

And one of these Beowulf ones probably is too. I'm not sure about the length of mine, I'll measure it tomorrow.

And yellow is the best color for a Hornet :D.

I measured it and the sleeve is 42cm. So just in between those Beowulf ones.

Lol, if only it were as easy as installing a tankpad. No, this involves carefull squeegeeing, knifeless tape, a good eyesight (I freehanded the outlines) and a shitload of patience and determination.

Edit: And yes I also installed a tankpad... But that just took 15 or 20 minutes.

I'd appreciate some pics of how you did the wrapping, it looks to be a good standard!

Not only Louis, they're all over the place. I like to believe they're not exactly the same, but if they're not, they're pretty damn close :). In any case I was happy to have found them on DX.
