Another tailchop idea

I finally decided to give the rear guard the old heave ho.
I blame Stressfest for flaunting his new Wasp tail chop.
I've gone in a slightly different direction & kept the original lights ala BongoBoyLA style(G'Day BongoBoy are you still around?)
As usual, the job was carried out A team style with bits lying around the workshop"I love it when a plan comes together"
I just need to buy a small led to luminate the rego' plate.
What do you think??

Looks great! I envy your freedom to make this sort of mod. Here in the police state of Queensland, the Department of Transport mandates that rear mudguards must extend to a point no more than 45 degrees above horizontal from the axle, and they vigorously enforce the rule with inspectors waiting at popular bike riding spots. I look at the Waspmobile in WA, and consider moving west!

The same also applies here in SA, I don't think a weekend goes by without some clown telling me my WASP tailchop is illegal and the cops are blitzing and blah, blah, blah. Anyway, I am yet to have a cop pull me over for a look see. Besides, I still have the reflector attached to my plate, surely that counts for something
