    the BADASS modification of the month contest - June '016

    Not everyone has a full bike project thread going, however most of you make bobs & bits, tweak things and complete mods to improve bikes in an ongoing process of continuous performance improvement. That never. Ever. Ends. Ever.

    So we at Ichiban Moto are sponsoring the "Bad Ass modification of the month" award !

    The winner will be awarded awesome bragging rights, admiration from their peers, recognition from the international motorcycle community and a sweet trio of Ichiban Moto stickers !
    ( That's right, a full 1/4 dozen of 100% authentic and Bad Ass "cetified" Ichiban Moto Stickers! )

    Post a picture or video of that thing you made this month along with a brief description : That part or tool you had to mod. That whatzit you carved from billet. Or wood. You guys/gals mod, make and alter things in some very creative and practical ways to make things work. And that should be shared, so here is thread to post it !

    At the end of June, we will post a poll of the finalists* for everyone to vote on.

    *a paired down selection of finalists will be selected by the Ichiban Moto staff for you to vote on

    OK, so I'll start with something so stupid that it'll be so easy to beat.

    I cut and welded the foot back on a too long sidestand to replace my too short side stand after raising the rear of the bike with longer shocks so I can take pipeburn quality pictures of my yard built ride in front of a cafe with an old homeless man loooking on without a block of wood under the sidestand.

    1985 VF100S fuel tank on a 1985 VF700S with drag bars and modded seat pan. Still need to install the fuel pump and paint the seat cowl.

    As last month's winner (in a hotly-contested final), I received this cool mini-certificate along with the stickers. I'm the envy of all my friends...

    damn, I need to modify something on the bike and get in on this action. That Cert would look good covered in grease taped to my tool box

    You see, this is what happens when they don't teach cursive in school...

    Why are they envious that you are cetified?

    And then submit it as your baddass mod of the month... I was going to but I've wasted so much time around work already I didn't think it would be prudent at this juncture.
