    Back on the TW Site

    Hey guys ,
    I was on here a few years ago with a couple of my TW's , still have them great bikes .
    The new build is a big wheel DR350 , Tecate front end and BW200 rear .
    Just got done the front caliper adapter for the KXT forks ... Never find a good caliper so I adapted one I have sitting around it was like new .

    Thanks Brian ,
    Parts just keep rolling in , I just ordered a xt350 Clarke tank , was going to use the STI raidial tires but talked to a buddy and they would be a odd shape he told me . I went with the ITP mud liters have a much rounder shape .
    Using a 250r front wheel has steel inserts , I machined up some custom shoulder lugs .

    Hey Guys ,
    Had to fab up a new heat sheild for under the Yamaha XT350 plastic Clarke tank , it's going to fit perfect the Tecate KXT250 triple will have full turning range .
    I got triple and tank prefit today , I had the mill 10 mill off the stem , I was lucky to have a rotating indexer and did it on a Bridgeport to get the top bearing to drop down far enough , just have to make a spacer to take up the difference .

    I did up a few TW200's over the years , I have had a nice pile of parts I have been gathering over the years , the 86/87 Tecate triples are pretty rare .
    I have a full machine shop , the bike is a lot of fabrication but trying to not getting carried away on this build but don't think that's going to happen .
