Sleeping beauty says, " are you kidding me!!!"

Well, call me crazy but I have decided to redesign her, in a whole new way. After much thought, and trial rides, I have concluded that she is just too heavy. With that being said, she has lost 100 pounds plus and rides much easier.
I have to decide whether to keep all the plastics or start selling them off, but it's no looking back from here.
I have a design in mind and you can view that below. It will take some ingenuity and cooperation from her, but I think we can get close.
Sorry sleeping beauty, but you will soon be sleeping bobber ;)

I like the idea. I've said it before, for so many years people have been modifying v-twins, why can't a boxer be modified? I'm happy to see someone finally tackle it.
