Jay, go ahead and print it. Pictures are there to be shared.

I've always been a huge fan of cafe racers. the first thing I did with my Vision when I got it was raise the forks in the tree, put a round headlight on, and put bar-end mirrors on.  I like the looks of the Vision's tail, it's just too long in my opinion. I'm working on a revised version of the drawing right now. My idea was also to do a rear hugger to compensate for the shorter tail. I had a 2003 ducati monster with a chopped tail, and never had a problem with mud slinging...until my rear hugger got broken off.

And, funny enough, I started reading Kafka's Metamorphosis right before I posted this.

Point. If it is a Vision and your riding it, it HAS been modified.

This left coaster..   ;)  thinks the V should be (re) done in "flat track" style..
like so many 650 Yamaha twins.... BUT that big old tank is a problem...
Maybe with a fat 19" front.... and a conventional rear fender/ seat / tailight... Humm....
Anyone agree?
