This my first project and it's keeping me quite busy. As you can tell from the pics I've got plenty of work ahead of me. Sorry I didn't take any pictures of the bike when I first got it. I guess I didn't have much time. I tore into it right away. It was such a mess that I threw away a bunch of parts. I should have checked out this site first as I probably would have salvaged some of it. Anyway I've been learning a lot working on this and now it's starting to get fun. I did have this posted on another site, but they kinda frown on these bikes so I decided to try here. You guys seem more receptive to all kinds of bikes.
Here's some photos of what it looked like when I tore it down.
And here's where I'm at now...
I'm finding the biggest pain is trying to figure out what bolts go where and what happened to some of my parts. I tore this thing down a couple of years ago and it just sat for a while. I labeled a lot of stuff when I broke it down but I can't believe how much I seem to have missed (or unknowingly tossed
). I will definitely be more diligent about that next time. I know I threw out some stuff but I am missing things that I know I kept. Oh well thank god for Epay.
What do you guys think? I decided not to go with the clubmans because I don't plan on putting rear sets on this bike. I think it would be too uncomfortable and not really necessary. I picked up those chrome european bars and I think they look good. They fit nice and don't hit the tank.
I'll hit you guys up with some questions soon.
