Streetfighter/Cafe Build

Well here goes my attempt at converting my 07 250 into a Streetfighter/Cafe bike. This is just the front end for now. I don't want to cut up the bike and would like to go back to stock if I decided to sell it one day. I built a new bracket to hold the light and the stock gauges. I am not a fabricator by definition of the word, but I gave it my best. Bought some 1/2 inch square tubing and 1 inch flat bar from Lowes. I made some relief cuts to make the bends and then tack welded the seams. This is really thin material and very easy to burn through. After a bit of grinding and some spot putty it was smooth enough for paint (chassis black). I am undecided if I am going to stay with the "alien" headlight or go with a more traditional 7" round headlight. Same goes for the stock gauges. Trying to do this on the cheap and I have less than $100 tied up so far. Which includes all materials, headlight and blinkers.
