Petcocks are a necessary but rarely attractive component of a motorcycle and one can either try to hide functionality or showcase it. Using a Glass Sight Fuel Filter you can see the condition of the filter and ensure that gas is flowing freely from the rear of the tank-mounted petcock. You can also see more of that beautiful engine turning work. There are over 12 hours invested in the engine turning alone!
The Exhaust is based off a set of the Street Sweepers with a one-off heat shield, made from stainless tubing with a Cerakoted, perforated steel pattern in the center to match the tank, fender and E-tank.
The E-Tank was a design TJ released a few years back called the "Erlenmeyer Tank"--a little nod to TJ's love for the X-Files!
For foot controls, TJ chose to match the raw and polished aluminum elements of the bike with a set of the Holey Footpegs as well as the Holey Shifter and Brake Pegs.
The frame has been powder coated with the color Kingsport Grey which TJ saw on some aftermarket BMW wheels before deciding on the color. TJ wanted the frame to be slightly understated with the "neat-o shit" on the bike drawing more of the attention.
A stock VT600 has the crankcase breather routed to the intake but TJ decided to have a little fun, so he bent up some aluminum tubing and turned the breather into a chain "luber." The stuff from the breather doesn't really do anything special for the chain as the chain is already waxed using Belray chain wax--but making something boring into something fun, is what chopping bikes is all about!
Another element worthy of note is the custom coolant lines TJ bent from aluminum tubing to create a far more visually pleasing piece where there was only boring black rubber hoses before. This modification required a relocation and drop of the stock thermostat giving the bike a beautiful blank space between the head of the motor and the backbone.
