Almost have it finished (pics)

Almost have her done . Just have to put radial calipers on and I think thats it for this year. Carbon is a MV. The lower belly pan has a problem with kick stand. It keeps rubbing the return spring bracket. Otherwise all parts fit good. Rhode it for first time today. Our weather was 58 and sunny out. The bike seems to run extremly hot and its still cool out.I even have engine ice,plus had the whole header ceramic coated to transfer heat.. The bikes only got 200 miles on it and the dam fans already melting.Wish someone would make stainless steel ones already.

Wow...that is beautiful, well done.

It sounds like your fans might not be working, the bike should not be running hot enoungh to complain about in that temp with those mods.

That is very sexy, yet stealthy as ninja.

Personality is what you show of yourself daily.

Character is what comes out under adversity. (Think about that)

wow, nice

I love the stealth look of the bike. It looks all business.
How long did it take you to put it all together?
Like the rearsets. Good Taste.

Jimmyz,

Just when I thought you can do nothing to an MV to REALLY make it look better - here you come and prove me dead wrong !!!! The bike is gorgeous. Great job. Serves as an inspiration. I must say it's very tasteful.
Job well done. Congrats !!! and enjoy.

Very tastefully done. SICK looking dark man.

Make sure your fans are working. After the stop leave the switch on for fans to cool down the temps.
