Is that velvet covering your seats?
Nice touch! Where did you get the turn signal mirrors?

The rear seat was some kinda purple color before and purple not being my type of color I had my girl cover it. She used some type of all weather velvet and had it stitched. Im not sure where the mirrors came from they were sitting in my shop, most like from a wrecked or blown bike I worked on. Hey anybody by chance have the filler piece that fits in the upper fairing (left)

Here is mine, another 95 750. It made a really big difference for me, though I find that without a tank bag, the regular windscreen is better. When I take my tank bag off the wind drops in behind the screen or something and feels like it's hitting me harder. But with the tank bag and the regular screen, I was getting wailed on right in the chest, which I didn't like. I'm really happy with the DB screen.

Thanks ChrAJohns. It is indeed flat black, I used Krylon's Ultra-Flat black right out of the rattle can. I put in a lot of effort into prep (everything in painting is prep) to have it come out nicely. I sanded a lot and used two coats of primer, then two to three coats of paint on top. Those are recent pics so the paint is about a year and 5 months old there. It faded a bit and in one or two spots. But, overall it looks awesome, especially if you're more than a foot away from the bike, =P

I didn't clear coat it at all to keep it nice and flat. You can use a Satin coat and it stays sorta matte, but the big perk to no clear coat is that if anything gets messed up, you can paint part of it without redoing an entire piece, or doing prep. The new paint blends right in with the old, it's awesome.

I think they were for an R6, not sure. I had the mounts made at work. Solid 2" aluminum notched and miiled to fit the down tubes, drilled center to accept the mounting bolt. Epoxy the sliders to the alum. A little shaving here and the to fit.
