Girder looks really nice. And the stance is ok. If you have to retain current frame dimensions, you could disguise the height a bit by dropping the exhausts just a couple of inches lower at the front.

HUGE NEWS!!!

I've heard back from the Transport Department of WA already and they've given me written "in principle" approval for ALL the modifications I want to make to this Chopper, being:
- change of wheel & tyre widths and diameter
- addition of the girder front end
- addition of the rigid hardtail rear end
- and most amazingly to chop, stretch and rake the frame!!

The list of things they want from the Engineer to prove the modifications are done safely and according to Australian Standards is long and onerous, but we'll get there.

This is the first step of many through this field of red tape, but a HUGE step. I'm so excited!!
