Isn't that Spaceruck's bike?
If so you should have left it the way it was, looked better blue.

Moved the front turn signals last night and removed the bunny ears

Just got done with a short ride with the new lower seat and new bars. Wow, the ride changed a ton! But i need some rear pegs. The thing sits me like a crotch rocket now since that seat sits so far back. Has anyone added pegs fairly far back? Like, mid-muffler area back?
