Default Gixxer Thou K4 - Cheap Trick

Well I've started! "Cheap Trick" cos I want to keep the expense of crash damage to a minimum.
The painkillers are history so long as I take it easy and get the muscle from the missus!

I've just about got everything together I need. All from my desktop! Inspiration from all sides. Cheers.

First mod was to remove tailpiece and remove the 2 flasher relay spades from the block (the original relay also covers side stand cut out).

The tailpiece will have cut outs to each side of the tail light for the strip LEDs.

Till later...will have larger inserted images when a bit more interesting

Still clearing the way but before Rad off I positioned the expansion bottle. AND I've just sussed how to insert images!!


Will fit OK so now off with Rad and bars etc. Looking cleaner now. Gunk the engine next and then power wash.

LED relay in position and wired.

1 tin of "Granville's Cylinder Black" 3.99
If the pipes looks naff when cured then I might wrap them.

I asked God for a streetfighter but I know God doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked God for forgiveness! My x-wife said the last thing she wanted was to hurt me, but it was still on the goddam list!
