Those gauges look bitch'n. Where did you get them?
That master cylinder is different to..
Thanks for your comments on my bike man. It means a lot to me that others appreciate what I did. The gauges are from Dime City Cycles. The master was a special order on ebay direct from nissin in Japan. They make OEM brake parts for pretty much everyone decent bike manufacturer. http://www.nissinbrake.com/corporate-profile/customers. I swapped out the reservoir here for a more old-school one to match the vibe of the bike though.
Pros - Great looking bike man! I'm going this way with mine. I am looking at options for on/off road tires and I think I am going with the Trail wings tw39&40. What did you chose for your bike?

Looks like the direction I'm going with my bike
Pros - Simple, to the point. Awesome look.
Cons - Gasp. Is that "patina" on the right exhaust?
Really nice. I would like a bike just like this.
Thanks man. I really appreciate it. It's taken a long time working in the evenings but it's almost where i want it. On the exhaust is just some bluing from when it was running too rich. I'm going to be changing that to black along with the engine soon.
