Wow, that looks great. I'd like my scram to end up like that.

How big a job is chopping the footrests off?. I really like the look, but I'm hesitant if I ever wanted to sell. The cut down seat looks the part. What rear lights are you using?

Thanks, the stator and sprocket cover are from The Speed Merchant in California. The handle bars came from ebay, just a used dirt bike set. They are much wider than stock which helps off road. Sawzall and a grinder take care of the peg mounts, no big deal. I used 3/4" plugs to fill the holes and krylon satin black to match the frame paint. The tail light is from Lossa Engineering in California. It is a very bright LED model. You can start the hole needed using the existing top hole for the stock tail light mount. The remaining 2 stock holes hold the license plate bracket.

Really nice. Looks to be an airbox removal and oil cooler mod away from being in Jack Pine territory.

Exactly, but already did the air box removal and not too sure about reducing oil cooling in the Mojave desert. Hammarhead's bike was the sole inspiration here and I give him full credit, but I find it a lot more satisfying to do it myself. A secondary benefit is that it cost a lot less if you put in your own labor.

Even better than your before pic on the other thread!
You're still nuts riding it without a front brake though.
