Dominator Scrambler
« on: Aug 01, 2018, 08:51:53 »
As many others, I have entered a long and exciting journey towards building my very own scrambler.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a mint condition 98-dommie, with 22000km on the clock, newly serviced engine, new sprockets, brakes and chain, aswell as new tires.

Some may say it is a bad idea to kill a bike in perfect condition, I say "not".

For the last couple of weeks I have been planning, tinkering and been getting more and more excited about the build.

I have completed some things, but there is still a lot left.

I have almost every needed part, just waiting for speedometer and taillights.

Tank in the pictures is shit ugly, and is a priority to re-paint asap.

Here are some progress photos:

Things to do moving forward:

-Paint the tank
-Swap the front rim to an 18x2,15" Excel rim
-Twinduro or SM tires (undecided)
-Get a battery tray made
-Wiring
-Modify sub-frame (during winter season)
-Paint rear rim black
-Finish last bits of welding on exhaust
-Powdercoat the frame (after modifications, most likely during winter)
-Front and rear fenders/mudguards
-Paint Front forks


As you can see, I am planning to do a lot this winter. This is mostly because winters in Norway are harsh on motorcycles, and we have a lot of downtime after exams. Which makes for a perfect time to do the long-term tasks.

As of now, I just want to get it on the road for some late-summer fun!

I'm on board. I've always dug the Dominators.
I'm going to eat your brains and gain your knowledge.

Welcome to the forum bud. I dig the paint on that tank, are you gonna strip it  back and repaint?

It came like this from Ebay. The paintjob is very poorly done, so yeah! For sure stripping the paint of it :)

Thanks for the welcome, I am looking forward to sharing my progress with you guys!

Made some progress today!

Talked to my neighbour, which is a steel worker. He is currently making my battery-tray! Which is going under the saddle.

Stripped all the paint from the tank, and have started to plan the tank paint job.




The bike is starting to look fly!

Another update, as this day was very productive:

My cousin helped me draw out a simplified wiring diagram to get the bike started! Adding the lights and stuff tomorrow!


My father has a friend that knows how to TIG-weld, so we went to visit, and ended up with a modified tank:

My fathers friend TIG-welding.

My father helping out, as I am terrible at precision. Atleast for now :o


We had to relocate the fuel line aswell, seeing it was colliding with the frame! Sadly I do not have any pictures at hand.


Tomorrows tasks:
-Get the bike started!
-Plan the rear seat hoop
