Looks well imo.
That looks ridiculous, looks like a 2017 end grafter onto a bike that looks 20 years old at the front. Just buy a new bike instead

Looks much better.

I say Go for it OP,sure you will have something different to the norm..
Not really the same at all, same bike minimal effort. He's talking about grafting a completely different bikes back end on

Ah well,if no one did anything different or tried anything different then the world would be a boring mundane place.

Different can be good too.

It works well on *some* bikes - NC30's (3rd incarnation of the VFR400 for all the 'anti model numbers' brigade) respond well to the 'tyga' treatment too - I still prefer them in original plastics, but at least in that case I can see the appeal of the modernised look.

and side by side, original RC30 and updated NC30:

But they're little supermodels, and as Bonzoid says, there's a lot more of the Thunderace to love.

TL is the same - don't do it man.
