Just like the subject says, I've had this bike for almost a year and a half now, and it was a rusted basket case then. Now shes almost done. I should have everything done by the end of the week except maybe a mastercylinder. All I have left is to finish the valve adjustment tomorrow, new tires, speedo cable, and chain and shes ready to go. This is how she looked after I put her together and cleaned most of the surface rust and years of dirt off

and this is what she looks like now

I can wait, its been a LONG time coming and its seemed like I've been working on this bike forever. I'm going to ride the piss out of it

AHHH cutting welding ,modifing see a true cafe bike,(making sure GTO-Geeto sees that you put some time into your ride and didnt just bolt on some clubmans, so he can "recognise")That seat arangement is alot better then what was there and you can still carry two people.Im selfish I just fit a solo seat and a bigger tank.
Looking good ! doesnt just getting rid of those monkey bars feel so much better ....ahhhh!

Im so far behind ,that I think Im in first.

agreed you can loose a lot more wieght buy fiting a solo seat,and dumping that massive air box.But jut use it and have some fun maybe after a few rides she wont want to go for a ride and Bam your in for more stripping it down to bare bones think cr750 style.
