She's ALIVE!!

I know you folks have seen a million of these, but I'm so stoked to have one in my shop. This gorgeous lady had an unfortunate and unplanned meeting with the back of a parked car that left her battered and broken up a bit. I just got her put together and had to share.

You might be interested in some of the non-oem parts. The headlight is not the same as the stocker, but kind of like the stocker on a diet. And it was a lot easier on the wallet.

Let me know what you think.

Is that a Suzuki Gladio headlight? Good job putting it back together, aside from the headlight and brackets you cant tell. What kind of exhaust is that? Haven't seen that one before on a brute, although I have seen a high mount that looked similar on a street triple.

Thanks.

The headlight is from Speigler. Its called "Urban". I have an account with them and got it for my Speed Triple. I mocked it up on the Brute and liked it enough to go to the effort making brackets, etc.

I didn't want to say much about the exhaust. Its one of my own. I don't want to violate the forum rules on selling stuff. Besides, at least for the moment, its not a product--its one of a kind. The bike had a dual Arrow on it, but it seemed a bit inappropriate for a guy who has an exhaust business to be riding around with someone else's product on his bike!

It just occurred to me that, although I have a fair number of dumb/embarrassing moves on my resume, launching a very expensive Italian work of art into a parked car isn't one of them. That stunt was performed by a "friend" of the former owner.

That "friend", whoever and where ever he is, is pretty much my hero since he facilitated me picking this baby up for a song.

No need to be sorry Joe. I know how loyal the MV fans are to the original designs and Italian accessories, and justifiably so.

But I do love to tinker! I'm probably a little more like the Ducati guys, but man, there's just no motorcycle on the planet as beautiful as the MV.

Looks good. I was thinking about putting some of those bar end signals on my bike. Where do you have the holes drilled for the wires?
