Got rid off some excess cosmetics like signals, dashboard, a few blinking lights, huge headlight, front mudguard, huge billboard taillight etc. I modified the tail-bit around the seats and panels, built a new bracket for the tail light, and mounted an improvised rear mudguard. Also changed tires to Heidenau (rear) and Dunlop (Front), and added gaitors to the forks as I've been having continuous problems with the fork seals. I've redone the forks just recently, so they should be good for another 5000 km's. I hope.
On the front I put a bottom mounted Bates replica 4,5" headlight (a bit off center) along with a single simple very poorly lit speedometer (for dramatic effect). Handlebars are from an xt500 or similar trail bike...not sure - it was a gift from the Wrenchmonkees. There's a Sebring exhaust mounted now which I'll replace when I get an idea of how to re-jet the carbs appropriately. The front suspension is progressive forks currently using a 10w/20w fork oil mix (which is a bit on the soft side) and air-pressure of 5-10 psi which makes a big difference in the handling if not pressurized. Dual piston single disc front brake. Drum rear.
I'm so ready for summer.
