So you are looking to change the exhaust and handle bars? Looks like a new seat on there too (or is there even a seat at all?)

Is that basically it for changes, or do you have other stuff planned as well?

I'm not a fan of the handle bars like that. So high up. I don't think it matches the style of the bike, and I also think its an uncomfortable riding position.

I'm looking at new handlebars, 3" tank lift, new rear fender, new seat and I don't think I'm going with the drag pipes probably duels with the crossover. Also the faring removed and new rims and tires. Little by little though.

The title "Inspiration" grabbed me because my Stone Free II Project is a Tribute to Inspiration. In fact that project inspired me to get a "selfie" tattoo reflecting conceptual design the Stone Free II chopper down to the drag-bars, girder fork, front controls, and headlight I'll be using.

I'm looking into moving the speedo. I want to flip it around and have it hang on the opposite side of the bars so that the bike has cleaner lines with the fairing off. Any ideas on how to make this happen...

I'm not an expert on speedos but it obviously requires disassembly of the speedo to rotate it 180 degrees in the housing and then fabricating a bracket to secure it again. My partner rebuilds speedos so I'll ask him how hard this is to do. I don't believe it's generally that hard to do but I've not personally done it. The bracket wouldn't be hard to fabricate and can be made from flat-stock.

If you move the speedometer to the backside of the handlebars how are you going to start the machine? It will probably block your access to the ignition.

Thanks guys. I will have to rotate all the internals or get a different housing for it. Also, yes I'll either have to move the ignition also, or use a riser to make space.
