SV mission complete!

Finally made it to this point after months of weekends away tinkering with my newly acquired SV1000s.

The bike lived at the old man's joint whilst we completed the work to be done.

Really happy with the results, my vision was to bring the SV into the modern day aesthetic. Clean and sharp without losing functionality.

Mods include:
Painted forks and exhaust header
Levers
Watsen Design LED indicators
Tail tidy (custom cut down to just a licence plate bracket)
Blacked out screen
Phillips xtreme vision lights
Magazi venom II mirrors
Carbon swingarm spools/sliders
Black stainless braided brake lines front and rear

The rest was mechanical fixes and improvements.
Only thing i may add for comfort is a Sargent seat. I really love this bike

Cheers mate!

I am still tossing up between Sargent and Corbin. Sargent is easier to source (Australia) and is a little cheaper.
I'm also unsure of the lower seating position of the Corbin, i like the current height of the stock seat.
