I got a tail light unit from a 2016 Thruxton, I love it. It will really clean up the lines of the bike and get rid of those ugly black blinkers. I will cut the tabs off of the grab rail, grind them down, and rechrome it. Also got an LED leadlight. I'll make new fork ears too, to move the headlight rearwards almost 40mm. The SV650 headlight ears that are on there now are almost 110mm long, which is unusually long.
Reworked the headlight brackets to accept the Triumph ears and new headlight, and replaced the clutch and brake cables to fit the shorter bars. Very happy with how it all looks. The wiring didn't fit into the headlight shell initially, so I had to shorten some sub harnesses and replace some large connectors with smaller ones. Fits in very nicely now.
Also you can see my new bead blaster in the background.
Thank you guys! Indeed, this whole thing is just a giant mockup before it gets torn down for bead blasting, painting, chroming, etc. All the manky fasteners will be replaced with swish button heads and stainless bits, it will get new tyres, everything will be cleaned and inspected and sorted. THEN, it will be done.
When it is 'done', I think I will ride it for a little bit, then consider any offers I may get on it. I'll be into it for about £10k. What do you think I could get for it?
