xs750 project lowrider
« on: Mar 25, 2018, 16:40:34 »
I wanted to build my own bike.... I owned a Yamaha xs 750 20 years ago and liked the bike so I found a basket case triple and decided to breathe new life into it. As I searched through other's projects... I saw a lot of chopped bikes... a lot of cafe racers... and a lot of bobbers. I wanted to do something a little different.... so I settled on the idea of a stretched low rider with an almost completely new frame, tank, and body parts. Since no one made the parts I wanted... I knew I would have to fabricate almost every piece by hand. My hope in posting here is to get advice from other triple fans and glean as much knowledge as I can from those here with much more experience than me. As you can see in this 1st picture... I inherited a true basket case. A cut up frame... and basically three boxes filled with varying parts.

Cool build, how come you used square pipes for the subframe?
