After two trips to San Felipe, Mexico and three years of commuting on it, I'm going to cut up my 2005 Aprilia Tuono. I'm getting inspiration from the bikes the Icon1000 guys are building. Sort of Mad Max meets dual sport, but this wasteland warrior will have 6 speeds, 130 horsepower and a redline of 10k.

Starting with this...




It looks like a lot of my linked photos disappeared. Here are some shote of the final product.

Super quickie mockups, thinking about paint. The color will be matte. I think I have decided to build a complete new tail section out of aluminum. Something simple that doesn't look like a stink bug alien.








The logo I want to use. Yes, it steals the Z from the Opel logo.

I can dig it. Check out F'dup's R6 build on here. Sort of a similar style.

You gonna get some fork gaiters or the slide protectors from a dirt bike? Gonna want something if you actually go offroad.
