Default Project DailyRider (my pun on "EasyRider")

So I'm getting real fuckin tired of the mileage the van gets, I'm trying to move out of the current place and to my girlfriend's, but I can't afford the fuel to drive back and forth to work everyday from her place. Just sold a couple of my tractors, and it allowed me to buy something that gets MUCH better mileage.

I bought a grampa bike.




Hoe Lee Fuck is it ugly! 76k on the clock, paint is faded as fuck, seat looks like a porkchop in the freezer, but its like 99% intact. Only things not there are a speaker grille, the antenna, and apparently someone stole the battery cover while the previous owner had it at work one day.

Has a new back tire put on last year, and the stator was replaced 4 years ago. Guy used it for a daily until last year when it stopped charging again. I'm gonna drain the tank, get some fresh fuel in it, and get it running and start testing the electrical system. Assuming the stator that was installed was new, I'm thinking the problem is prolly the R/R. I'll find out once it's running.


So anyway, the plans.
This bike is going to be my daily. Save for the maintenance items, once it's on the road it will not be parked for anything short of winter, my ass in jail, or an accident. I'm going to clean it up, fix everything that needs fixing, replace old shit with new shit, and make it a comfy daily.

I'll get more pics come daylight, and start making a list of what it needs. I cant wait to ride

I'd love to put some miles on a VFR but due to accident in high school my hip can't take the riding position of a sport bike. It hurt to just sit on the GSXR I hauled home for Ratfighter last year.

Ok, after some looking over today, and an attempt to get it started as is, it definitely needs some cleanup and work.

To do list:

Clean carbs
New plugs
Oil and filter
Air filter
Fuel filter
Fresh fuel
Wash the fuck out of this thing
Flush and fill brakes and clutch, check brake pads
Coolant flush
Alternator conversion
Go over all the wiring and make sure all lighting and electrical is 5by5



Once the bike is running and everything is back to good, I'm gonna do some minor upgrades/changes.
Future to do list:

Replace all lighting with LED
Upgrade trunk panels to lights (Aspencade comes with these lights stock, Interstate does not)
Add driving lights
Replace ancient JVC tape stereo with modern cd/mp3 or media deck to use my ipod
Replace crusty ancient speakers with better speakers (prolly do that next time I step outside, I have a pair of Polk Audio 4" that will fit)
EBC brake pads front and rear
Reupholster seat and passenger backrest
New grips
Remove all the gay chrome shit that's all over the bike. It has too much. Slotted light covers, bars on the front fender, this chrome plate covering the sides behind the carbs, it's all tacky as shit. Dead weight, useless crap.
Sand and paint all the plastics with a single color. Currently faded as hell with a lot of cracked or missing clear coat.


That's pretty much it for now.

There is no sound even coming from it. It's a dead relic of antiquity with no use lol.

Took the light panel out of the trunk. Lights and wiring are already there from a previous owner, but setup to be tail/brake all the way across the top. Need to rewire to use the outers for signals.

I have a recommendation for your stereo.. I use a sony dsx 200sx digital media deck in my truck and I love it! Mostly because it has this "tune tray" where you flip the face of the stereo down and you ipod goes into a tray that comes out and then push back into the stereo and flip the face up and it's all hidden and safe inside the deck... Crutchfield has a marine grade version that would be good for you if you happen to get caught in the rain, but has the same tune tray thingy...
