Very nice build.
But yet another example of builds with straight pipes instead of megaphones.
Imagine the bike with a nice pair!

Really nice build!
AND it has 'phones as part of it.
I see one glaring mismatch of build quality.
Look at that fabricated exhaust system, then look at the welding on the fake oil tank.
How such welds were deemed acceptable is beyond me.

Nice proportions!

Exhaust would need changing, IMO, and I'm not quite getting the reason for the XT tank designation. What about a retro Kawasaki tank graphic from an old off-road bike?

Yes, it needs proper pipes on it.

I see the weenie reverse cone at the end of the skinny pipe.
But it is a reverse cone!
