i was thinking about a manx flyscreen. ive always liked the "naked" look. fairings are tough. they have to be just right. i like the ducati fairings. id have to have it painted brown and striped and ug. the first time i squeeze it through the gate at the shop, it'll be trashed. i have the 4-1, and im going to get a dyna for it. it still needs some carb work. the axle adjusters are bent. i should replace the carbs. the prior owner kinda messed up the float bowl screws and put in some big ones here and nuts and bolts there. so those are kinda fucked. the turn signals are going. i hate them. i just need to find something small, not modern, that doesnt cost 100 bucks. i was thinking the cb350 has smaller ones and i think the stalk is the same. so those might be good. im also going to upgrade to some ebc brakes. the stockers suck. bigtime. id like to find a vented disk too. and i still am looking for that rear wheel. whch could be a long search. although, i do have a pile of money owed to me right now, which would mean anything is game. the pipes have holes in them in the back at the bottom. on the right side. and the baffles are rotted, so they rattle around when you ride. its a small sound, but noticable. i have the 4-1 already, just need the time to hook it up. the rotted stockers sound good though. i also need to fix the ignition switch, reroute the throttle cable, or make a new one, replace the front brake hose with a shorter one, it needs a new clutch cbale, and i need to add bar end mirrors. id like some nice italian Stadium mirrors. and thats about it. i'll get pics with the new pipe when i get to it.
i still need t get into the suspension. and a race clutch will be fun.
and champ, those are the tomasellis on there. i was going to by from you, but it was just easier to get them from tex. and i have a garage full of british stuff. if i want to ride something that broke down all the time, id ride one of those. (actually, my bonneville is a great ride) i just cant afford something italian nor do i have the skills to fix something italian. i like that i can get on this and ride 150 miles and not think about anything but running out of gas, and making sure i have air in the tires.
and its funny, i used to get looks and comments with it before the clubmans, now everyone stops.
this is what i have into it.
660 for the bike
220 for the tires
220 for the pipe.
40 for the tailight
30 for the bars
(25 for the stupid wrench to tighten them)
probably another 75 for tune up stuff. oil, filter, brake stuff etc...
