I listed this last week and promptly left town…  I was not a very good seller and left some unanswered queries.  I real list now with a commitment to be available. 
The original idea of this build was to emulate an old Porsche race car pulled from a barn…  Porsche race cars are known for the tachometer being the dominant gauge, and they were also know for not necessarily being the fastest, but they had the biggest brakes and were a simple and reliable design. Note the distressed paint and oxidized engine/trans – this build is meant to be ridden – not worried over. (It is a blast to ride and turns heads)
Items of note:Full German made Moto gadget m-unit “blue” set up – your smart phone is the key. Eliminates all relays, fuses and flashers – Fully programable lights, alarm, activation range. Keeps track of maintenance, ride quality, and allows you to “ping” the bike from a distance. Simple, reliable and functional. Very cool set up. German made Moto gadget m-blaze bar end turn signals, and M-switches. M-button allows only 1 wire to transmit all handle bar functions. New custom wiring harness – fully sheathed and grommeted where it passes through body panels 
Shorai lithium ion batteryEME 450 watt solid state alternator (eliminates brushes and a weak point of the airhead)Custom aluminum rear subframe with electronics box and rivet treatmentCustom aluminum cockpit with rivet treatment Shinko big block tiresDual front Brembo calipers with steel braided brake lines (different than the ones pictured as they were too radical)Porsche vibe Acewell giant analog tach/digital speedometer with integrated high low beam indicator, turn signal indicator, oil pressure warning light battery condition light, shift warning light, digital mileage etc. Dual remote choke pullsTomaselli throttleMagura 15mm Custom brake master cylinder Mac Performance exhaust (custom tuned) New cables (clutch and throttle)New clutch discAll tuned up, fresh fluids, carbs rebuilt and synced Custom distressed Gulf Porsche 917 tribute paint scheme I changed the calipers to dual piston (instead of the 4 piston) as the brakes were too touchy. Fun reliable head turner
