Sorry guys, i'll have pics up at around 11:15 PM. Still uploading and editing the photos. I'll also upload a video later this week. Bear with me guys.

These are actually HID Fog Lights that you can get at wal-mart, but i fitted in some Phillips 5,000k Amber HID Bulbs. I fitted the foglights into the headlight housing (which i painted black) and this is how it looks like w/o the headlight lenses:
Headlights on:
Headlight output:

And here are more shots of my finished fairings of the carbon fiber bike, which I like to call the Pitbull. The seat, gas tank, and headlights will soon be redone in carbon fiber as well. BTW, i need a few people willing to have some carbon fiber chainguards done in various colors (red, silver, and black). If you are interested, please PM me.

Once I finish the full cf conversion, I'm going to swap in the 65cc kit i'm having made, then install some new billet rims (i heard a rumor a few companies were working on some for the cateyes), paint the frame black, install clear headlights, replace rear taillight lense, raise the bike with my new DNM Fireball shock (thanks to Sesshoumaru562 for the advice), and install upgraded parts such as BMX brake levers, disc brakes, proline muffler, steering damper, etc.

thanks. the headlights weren't too hard to do actually. i wired everything up the night i bought them. installed the lamps the next afternoon (about 1.5 hours) including paint drying time. now all i need are some new headlight lenses (old ones are tinted, don't want them anymore).

$120 for all materials including disposable brushes, fiberglass, carbon 2x2 twill, surfboard polyester resin, disposeable vacuum bagging materials and mold release. the labor was the most intensive, took 2 weeks to redo my side fairings and fenders over and over and over again until it was the way i liked it.

Why did you use poly resin? Your really not getting the full performance out of the CF with that.

Aside from the cool body work, did you do anything to the bike to make it more durable. I found that all the china bikes eventually fall apart with very little usage. A savvy rider neighbor of mine fixes both motorcycles and PBs and his china x3 and x1 have all fallen apart even after hours of placing lock tites on the bike and other durability fixes.
