Located and ordered some 2016 Speed Triple tank emblems from my dealer. They had to get them from the UK.



They're about two weeks out and will be painted gloss black.

Ordered a lightly-used Daytona 675R driver seat as my stubby seat. The tail is getting bobbed anyways, so I'll just try to get it to as OEM of a look as possible with it:



This will get wrapped with the same pecan leather as before.

Shock arrived. Looks great.



Also the gold color for the calipers, wheels, and tank emblems has been picked. It's House of Kolor Pagan Gold over Silver Flake:

Picked up another Driven Racing Halo Gas Cap from Rider Discount. Same one I used on the last bike and was super impressed with.

No real updates right now. My painter had to take a month off to focus on a single car, so he's just now getting around to painting those tank emblems gold and smoking the tail light.

As for color, I came across Caspian Blue and it's pretty riveting with gold--almost Subaru STI ish, of sorts.



Considering doing this color for the tank instead of the Dark Bronze color opted for previously. Just thinking aloud here.

Sourcing the bike now. Found a few leftover 2013s and 2014s within about a 6-hour drive. Talking prices with the dealers, so may go grab one this weekend.
