Project Brutale almost done!

I bought CAG's 06' Brutale back in December just before Christmas and have been working on restoring it to being street worthy. Here are a few before and after pics. All that is left is to get my rear wheel back from powder coating and awaiting the headlight assembly. There are a few mods I have installed on it to satisfy my taste.

Arrow Steering Stablizer
Arrow CF Thunder Exhaust
PC3 (needs tuning)
BMC Air Filter
CF Tank Pad
CF Side Guards
CF Key Guard (waiting arrival)
CF Tail Piece (waiting arrival)
Clear Alternatives Brake Light with Integrated Turn Signals
Rear Sets (waiting arrival)
New Michelin Pilot Power 2CT's
Fresh Paint Job
New Chain
Frame Sliders (waiting arrival)
Reupholstered Rear Seat with Black Vinyl

If I hadn't fallen in love with the looks of the Thunder, I would have gone with the Arrow Dual Silencer Ti version instead.

I was thinking of doing a blue and grey theme, but I don't think it would look as good in person as it does on paper. The black just apealed to me as I have never owned a black bike and I thought it would look menacing.

Damn, that looks good. I love the stubby Arrow. Why did you get the CF and not the titanium?

I personally prefer CF or Ti, plus it won't melt your boots.

I was doing a black with carbon fiber theme, and thought that the exhaust would mesh well with the looks.
