Hi fellas,
As it appears I have just acquired a 1998 trx850 that in need if some attention. I'm looking to give it the modern cafe look come January but fir now she will be a daily ride.
Looking at possibly going down the path of putting in a R1 front end and ss or rickman faring. Here are some pics as she is now

Nice bike, I would love one of these. I would make it as minimal as possible, lose a ton of weight and give it a good canning :)

Hey man great bike. I have been tempted by one of these lately. I would put a round front 1/2 fairing and duc tail on it. Good luck mate!

Been looking at a few nice examples of modern cafe's and I'm looking to keep the pillion. But got board and played around with the look in after.

Wanting black faring & seat with a silver flaked tank like the old winning ss Ducati super bikes.



Heading to japan in a few weeks so I am going to try and source the faring and exhaust over there. Anyone recommend places to get bike gear over there.

Just got back from japan so the money saving and spending for the trx begins.
Picked up these Posh indicators for the girl.

So I have finally managed to get some extra cash together and we have the trx back in my shed. She is sporting new brake fluid new oil new timing chain filters the lot. Next is the. De faring the form seals tyres and seat. The front faring is off and an cleaning bits up.

So did a quick mock up. Looking to move the bars under the top tree mount however as it looks a bid odd that high. What do you guys think?
