Radiator Cover with color!

Hey peoples! This is my first post on the forum and can't wait for some input.

I recently bought a 15 street 750 in OCT 16 here in MN so I really did not get a chance to ride it BUT ever since the winter came I have been doing a BUTT load of mods to it, I even got the tank and fenders powder coated! Anyways, Here is the topic at hand. I have seen NO good alternative to the slightly plain radiator cover this bike has. I thought of getting the only SS one or whatever and ran into 2 problems

1) Went to the site and cannot find it anywhere.

2) personally, I think it looks super ugly.

So I went around the problem and recreated my radiator cover somewhat. This only cost me about 40$

20$ - metal fence material
20$ - Powder Coating

Here is a few photos I have and let me know what you think! This is the easiest, simple and most custom way I can think of for this thing other than starting from scratch and welding and all that fun stuff that is time consuming.

Thanks and can't wait to post pics of the powder coat job once the tank is on and the light mods etc I have done so far!

It looks good but it seems to be lacking something. Paint a black skull over the yellow-green and then you're talking. Better yet, use some electro luminescent paint (this could get expensive). Nice job!

CC customs, makes one for us for $100... it completely replaces the stock polymer one and you don't need to remove it for the oil filter either... I am waiting on them to redesign the one they used to make due to the logo they used left a big hole for rocks and debris to make it through... So I held off until the redesign... They are a vendor on here and they had a thread on it I believe...

I have tried private messaging StoneFree about buying one of his grills. I think it looks awesome, but I can't him to reply back. Does anyone know if he is still a regular on this forum?
