      Some points from my side:

      1. That Disc Assembly is not of OE RX-Z 5-Speed. You could have gone for Gladiator set-up atleast!!!
      2. Front Mask is missing. This is taking away the character.
      3. The seat looks old!!!!! I would never do that on a freshly built machine.
      4. Central Lock is missing!!!
      5. Big Cat-con exhaust needs a fresh coat of paint!!!! Try repainting to gold scheme which came as OE.
      6. What work was done on engine? Is it a 4TL10 or 4TL00 & is it with 5-Speed GB?

      To me the bike looks incomplete. I hope you have the fully built bike ready by now. Anyways its a good attempt.

      For me, if one is rebuilding an RX-Z, this is how it should look like (quality wise)...... The owner spent in excess of 50K for restoring this. It was a complete rebuild job including engine + cosmetics.
