The last few days I have been down in Cornwall with a few mates at the Wild South West Bike Rally, it has grown from the small affair it was back in 2019 for the first ever to bursting at the seams now.
They ran a bike show and my bike won Best Cafe Racer 2021! :cool:

Congrats. It's a very cool ride. I didn't realize how much work and little stuff was done to it, until I saw a vid of yours showing some of it. That much effort deserves and award.

Congrats.

SO what mods have you done?
Ta all.

@LandyVlad The subframe has been chopped and a hoop fitted, custom seat and seat cover with embroidered Imperial logo, custom rear underframe with Darth Vader mural, Kineo wheels, Hagon rear shock, K-Tech front fork internals, MotoGadget Micro Dash, shortened and lowered closer to the tyre front mudguard, Mistral exhausts, currently has clip-on bars fitted which I am going to remove as I don't get on with them as well as the last handlebar setup I had fitted, also rearsets, but again, I am thinking about reverting to the original footpegs as they were more comfortable, then custom paint to finish it off.

Not as bad as Germany by any means but for rear guard I believe it TECHNICALLY has to cover 45 degrees to the rear (varies state by state) but heaps of people have tail tidies and get away with it.

There certainly has to be a rear guard and the number plate has to be displayed on the central axis of rear of the bike, and illuminated. So that means under the seat. No side mounts or any of those possibilities here. Also there's a minimum separation of rear indicators, same for front, minimum mirror sizes, all sorts of shit.

Any exhausts louder than stock are banned and there are cops who hang out and book everyone they can find. One local guy has about 90% of his noise tickets challenged and rescinded but that doesn't stop the prick.

The one good thing is here in Queensland we don't have any MOT equivalent so can often get away with things which may not technically meet the law (after market LED and HID headlight bulbs, smaller than stock indicators and mirrors etc).
