    Finally! A happy T Duber and ready for the rocks! Pic heavy!

    Seems like it took forever but it's only been a month and a half.
    It all began when Bucknutz took me fishing, IN MY BOAT and got me hooked.

    I found a real nice ' 91 T Dub with 675 miles on it and in great condition, I call it the "Garage Queen"! Untouched, never abused and bone stock.

    It ran but not real well because of carb issues.

    Thanks to this forum, OR NOT, I began with my little project. Dial it in for the way I plan to enjoy it.

    I cleaned the carb, no change , rebuilt the carb with all new OEM parts and still ran for $hit and finally bought a new carb and now it is running perfect. I also fabricated my own pilot screw adjuster so I don't get my fingers burnt.

    I also did all my mods that make it my bike.

    12 Volt power outlet for GPS, quick release seat bolts, wide foot pegs, Jimbo dark shield, Coleman seat pad, Givi tank bag, Moose hand guards, Lizrdbrth Oil Cooler, soft grips, Cycle racks rear rack and a quick release crate mount so I can take my Brittany and some fishing gear with a cooler. I did 60 miles today with some nice dirt in the middle and I am stoked. Tough to find this kind of fun at 61 and for a bike that is almost 23 years old she sure is looking like a 23 year old!





















    I can run now with the confidence of my new, old T dub and with no worries.

    Come and ride with me and Bucknutz here in the NY Catskills.

    Very nice! Making it your own is half the fun, good job.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    Hey Gary,

    Glad to hear that your bike is back in business, and it looks great!

    That pilot screw adjuster sure looks handy.

    How did you mount your 12V outlet to your indicator light housing? I just picked one up from Cycle Gear and was trying to figure out how best to mount it. Your installation looks real clean.

    Now go out and enjoy your bike,

    Brian

    JB Weld two part epoxy. Rough up both parts first.

    Really Nice. Particularly like the look of the Moose Hand Guards... I am curious, does the extra use of the battery with your 12volt adapter detract any from the actual battery? Was thinking of adding a GPS to mine when i pick her up but was uncertain if it would just be too much for the system given that its a 1990 and I have read on this forum the light bulbs are less wattage, etc... noob question probably but alas, don't want to do anything to my T-Dub that will affect it negatively. Again, great looking bike.

    EDIT: P.S. Where do you buy that seat cover and Mosse Hand Guards? Looks really comfortable and nice...

    I'd like to know more about the quick release seat bolts. Is it a DIY mod or are they buyable?

    Nice! That is a nice clean example of an early TW made even better by the mods you've added. I especially like the utility you're getting with your modified milk crates and mount. Fishing gear and the dog, now that's what I'm talking about. Beautiful fish. I certainly wouldn't mind coming out and riding with you guys in the Catskills, as soon as I get the flux capacitor hooked up to my TW. Now, let's see how fast was it I have to get the TW to activate that?
    My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.

    Wow! Nice find. Incredible for a 22 year old bike, it looks like it rolled out the dealers door yesterday.

    Great mods on it too - I wish I could mod mine out all at once. I really like the split milk crate dog carrier. Where did you get your 12v outlet?

    The carb may still be savable - it sounds like some of the interior passages may still be clogged. I've read about disassembling clogged carbs and soaking them in Pine Sol for a good while, don't remember where, but many had good results. If it worked you'd have a spare carb for just in case.
