'99 Legend 20th Birthday Makeover

Posted here a while back that I was going to go the cafe racer rout with my '99 Legend. We'll, my girl just turned 20 and I bought her new. Time for a facelift. Here she is after a spring wash down. Basically stock with some extra chrome accessories I bolted on right after I got her.

As long as it has more than one wheel, I'm game.

Balanced out the chrome a bit. Just a few touch up details left.

I see the 19" wheel lifted the front a bit and You had to compensate by lowering by the forks some ~2cm?
Did the rear shock lifted the back?

I had actually raised the forks from stock. They are now about 2cm lower, maybe a little lower than stock. I didn't measure, but the rear is probably an inch higher. The new seat is about an inch lower. Overall, I sit the same as I did before changing anything. Everything felt about the same until I mounted the 19" front wheel. Then I just dropped the forks until it felt right.
