Default My new bike start to finish with pics. ITS DONE! (almost)

Here's the before pic. Bone stock and BORING.

Near mint 02 with 13k miles and I got it for $3k.


First things first. Strip'er down and get started on the tank.


Then comes the cage. I love getn low in the corners so the wrap around cages just wont cut it as they like to scrape and I cant have that.
Decided to use the old bike as a template.








Ok so I screwed up a bit in the order of the pics there at the end but you get the idea. Now that the cage is fitted to the new bike it's ready for primer and paint.

Now to re-route the idle control..


Check...

Now for the head light..


Ok well the paints done on the plastics and everythings ready for assembly. Time to slap tha 8itch together.







And it's done! Almost. Spring came early this year so I sped things up and skipped some stuff just so I could get it together and ride it but it's good for the time being. Still have to get rid of the fender, Chop the windscreen, cut the pipe down or get a louder one. That elephant of a Yosh just wont cut it and it's too mellow. But yeah here it is for now.

Turned out nice, is it just me or is the rear brake reservoir low?
