got this for $80 With some work to the carbs, new plugs and some points/condensor it fired right up.

Building it for my lady, but she changed her mind she wanted a cafe first...


it's too tall and the doesn't like the swingarm...
this is what she wants


Threw some spare tanks on





i am leaning towards not using the stock tank, i like the green patina tank, the black tank is a 883 tank but would tank some tunnel mods to fit better.

You going to use the seat pan you originally mounted on it?

that 883 tank looks massive on there.... IMO to keep proportions you are going to have to narrow and shrink a tank.

Cool, and very original idea with the look.....I think I'd keep the body work's patina just like it is....

Speaking of the tank.....what happened with the rest of that T500 you had?
