Looks to me like Kirkham has a new vendor or they changed the design a bit.
Definitely looks thick! And rounded shoulders.

It looks similar to mine (845). I can send some pics when I get a chance.

she left the garage for a quick spin around the street, besides some smoke from the grease used on the headers and i think the ebrake dragging a bit it seems ok
this thing is going to be fun shooting night photos of with some well placed lights and the good camera. the brushed finish just pops with the wrap

Looks great!

You are going to learn to love those little dents. I have 7500 miles on mine now and lots of tiny dents. Some (front, esp down low and around the lights) look just exactly like someone hit me with a BB gun. I am going to wait until I am ready to sell mine at some point and then get them knocked out. Until then they are part of the patina!
