The fork tubes are up way too far. The current placement will mean the the fork sliders are going to top out against the lower triple on hard bumps which in effect locks the suspension. There's only @3/4" to 1" that they can be slid up w/o that happening.

Those tires look to be too wide for the rims as well.

How can you tell from that photo? Sure the tires look kinda fat but having no idea what size the rims are I'm not sure how to tell.
I have a few of this model.
Front rim is 18 X 1.85 and comes with a 100/90/18 tire (can go up to a 110/90/18 max)
Rear rim is 16 X 2.50 and comes with a 120/90/16 tire (can go up to a 130/90/16 max)
Your tires look to be much wider than the max.

What size tires are on it? The rim size is stamped on the right side of the rim.

Dude, you've really got to take a minute to paint the back end of those mufflers.

Otherwise I like the look, well executed.
I'll want to hear how it rides.

Covering the cut-off ends of the frame in the back by the shocks would look good too. What happened to the centerstand? It looks like the foot on the right side somehow got mangled. I like the look of the older 450 tank on the bike
