Default 1991 ex500 -Barely Legal

OK so here is where I am with my bike. It's my only running bike at the moment so I can't take it down for longer than a weekend without going crazy.







The headlight is an xs650 I believe, aluminum flat bars bent for the mounting brackets for it. Speedo off a gz250. I wired in relays so the blinkers would both light a single idiot light on the dash. Seat is the front of the ex500 seat chopped and bolted to a monster seat and currently just vinyl stretched over it for a cover. I will be grafting the two original seat covers together to hopefully get a better fit. Turn signals and tail light are clearance markers with the stock bulb plugs in. Tail light idea I stole from someone on this site, I forget who, but thanks

I still have lots in mind, 01 gsxr 750 swinger swap but keep the stock rim. Better forks but waiting on a good ebay deal.

The theme of this project is cheap. $400 bike off CL with under $300 worth of parts to make it pretty, cheap on gas, cheap small tires for it. I found I can get pirelli scooter tires for the big maxi scooters for the 16" rims for $120 a pair and they are supposedly really good tires.

Hey I am good buddies with the President of HT moto. He could do a really Sick Seat Cover for your ride to match the racing stripes. Let me know if you are interested. Email me.

You can check out what materials he has at hydroturf.com

Grafted the two seat covers together. Sewing is a bit dodgy but it looks good.


Thinking about a klr650 swingarm swap so I can get a bigger shock in. Only small diameter spring shocks will fit current swingarm and I want to pop a gixxer shock in ideally.

The seat does go with the flow of the bike nicely.
