Don't worry, it's not gonna happen any time soon. Got an engine swap to finish first! :lol:
Definitely gonna do it though... I'd been contemplating putting the vectors back on otherwise - even though the Xlinks are so much better!

Now that I like. Although changes for me would probably be flat bars, bar ends and proper spuds. :) Oooh and maybe HS33's if I can find some nice condition Yellow or Red ones.
