only two? Let's see some mods ! :D
you can't win if you don't enter ..... only 10 days left in July ! :D
Ok I'll give it a shot.
Took the foot long rear turn signals off my bike and replaced them with some that only stuck out a little. The new blinkers did not quite fill the hole in the metal where the original blinkers were mounted. The nut on the back side was to small to be able to grab the surrounding metal to tighten the light snug. A little fancy washer work and they are now snug and not going anywhere. However they are now flush mount instead of the intended protrusion of 1.5 inches from bike to blinker.
Oh and how do you like the patented "Braappp extrapolation magnification turbo ports" that the previous owner drilled into the back end of the megaphone mufflers?
Where do you live EWS?
I Da Hoe ? I Da Pimp ! somehow it was funnier when granddad teased my Aunt from boise

Can I enter Rich's bike? He's a massive fan of Ichiban Moto and is racing his first hillclimb in August. An Ichiban Moto sponsor sticker would be a proud addition.
He's done 90% of the work himself and made, in my opinion, a bloody good job of it. It's a T509 speed triple with a t595 daytona motor installed. brembo pads all round, brembo rear disc (overslung caliper from sprint st), renthal hard anodised sprockets with top spec did chain. Chinesium alloy cnc adjustable rearsets which snap of just the same as the flash Italian ones when you crash but at a third of the price, Maxton fully adjustable rear shock tailored for riders weight. Titanium silencer and link pipe. Genuine old school brit headlamp, electronic programmable rev counter with gps speedo and a kazillion other features. cool old bicycle lamp altered to take triumph temp guage mounted atop radiator. LED idiot lights mounted in top yoke, lightweight lithium batteria. I'll take some pictures when it gets back from dyno (in fact literally just got the call from him to say he'd arrived safe ( after winding me up of course, the bar steward)) but here is a video taken about an hour ago to whet the appetite.
Attachment 22530Oil catch pan on my pretty much stock Suzuki TS 50 that I will be using for vintage road racing. This is the third 50cc racer I have done, and have used the cake pans on all of them. This time I used the heavy duty "Bakers Secret" 9x13" pan coated with Teflon for extra high performance. On the previous one I used a cheapo Walmart 9x9, it did the job but was flimsy so I sold that bike. Used the BS 9x9 on the first 50cc.
not easy to mount as there is no frame beneath the engine. In the back it is mounted to the center stand holes using an elaborate and heavy system-that bolt must weigh a pound, front is using case bolts.
while it seems odd, cake pans and paint roller trays are used by lots of racers. Some guys try to get thru tech with foil turkey roasting pans.....
on my cb350 racer, it came with a pizza pan, which I replaced with an official Tannermatic cb350 belly pan. That is the best way to go.
i want some stickers to put on my racers! Vote for me! Even if I don't win send stickers- thousands of fans will see them at our races!! They will have plenty of time to read Iciban as I am none too fast.
