simplify the rear
lose the corner of the tank
other paint scheme
Bike in the flesh
Found this example 15km from my home
controls badly oxidized
Refurbishing the original is my decision
left side after refurbish
Right side after refurbish
Home made blinker
powder coating the top section and painting plastic parts
New grips and bar cause original was too small
tank was plastic so metal one was sourced
further tear down
Tank looks really good !
deciding how to alter the rear frame
seat found and test fitting plastic tube is new frame idea.
seat frame made
Taking of seat frame and cleaning up.
Checking rolled tube for fitment
First test fit of the tubing, seat and tank.
New arc after welding ....fitting
placement of the rectifier
testfitting bracket that replaces passenger footrests
Brackets powder coated and fitted
love the stock alloys
tank came in
last electric issues
the Result !
I do not like the stance
rear is perfet!
so what needs to be changed?
Left hand side
Bit of fooling with the color
love the radiator curve
2 Inch fork drop
Much better stance!
Time to take the bike for some exposure
on the Bakkie!
It was on display in this clothes shop for 1/2 a year
I got some really nice comments!
