I'm not 100% sold on the seat setup.

Yeah, it looks better in person and with some padding/ covering I'll be happy.

FSC bars are gravy.

I didn't see what kind of bike this is. A lot of work has been put into this, and it looks fantastic.

I'm just an 'on-looker' at the moment... i.e. without bike for a while, injured and shit, but plans to get back aboard a bike. Sportys have always been a favourite of mine and this thing is inspiring.

Actually gonna put brake lights in there. Unless I hate them, then I'll round it off and move the shock mounts forward a bit. Red handled screwdrivers look pretty good in there though. Probably going with a lexus candy army green with black scallops/ whte pinstripe.
