    Supertrooper's Build Thread

    Thought I would start a build thread for my bike. Picked my first TDub up in October and I've been slowly making it mine over the past few months. Lots of inpirational builds on this site and I hope to make mine at least half as cool. Some images below show the before and after so far. I'll just post up here randomly to show my progress. Thanks!


    Here are some images of the bike when I bought it on Oahu. Title says it had around 7000 miles on it. This is a 1987 so I hope the dreaded CDI issue never shows up.

    Here is how the bike looks now.

    Here are some Highlights of some mods I've done.

    Round Headlight was purchased off ebay. Painted Camo to match the rest of the bike. Also I fit all the signal wiring inside of the casing, making the clutter down in front a little less intrusive.

    Also got these OURY Grips to replace my old weathered ones.

    LED Taillight purchased from ebay added as well. Has integrated signals making a cleaner design.

    Vintage Yamaha Speedometer added to clean the front some more. Think I'll paint it black eventually.

    Looking good, can you send me some details on your tail-light?
    Nice and clean!

    Also some details on your board rack?
    Finally picked up a Tdub...

    Oh yeah!!! I like the round head lite and the mini turn signals. What happened to the Carver rack?? I got mine on , but comes off easy. Are your tires original? Mine are so I am changing them now.
    saw 3 more TW's on the north shore this week.

    MR PAYNTER, The surfboard rack is made by Carver. You can find them on E-bay, cost about $140 us. They bolt onto the TW easy, good for shorter boards, but will take a long board. I had to make a pvc pipe bracket off my front frame to hold the longer board. Don't know how to post pictures yet.

    Rack Sells for about $100 I think. Got it on craigslist for about $60. I still haven't gotten it mounted in a solid place where I feel its really secure. Once I get it all locked in and done, I'll get you guys some good shots of it. Debating building my own though. I love the Deus bikes how they have built in racks mounted near the front and rear of the bike.

    Yes! Headlight pretty much makes the bike for sure. Defiantly the best part of my build so far. I really wanna get some new tires for mine but I'm currently dealing with a leaky carb and fuel petcock. Let me know what kind you get. Hope you can get some pics up soon. Shoots!

    Awesome, thanks guys!
    I should be fine with the smaller rack, as I'll be lugging a bodyboard and fins.

    Also love the Deus bikes, and it makes sense after doing a couple of trips to Bali, most of the scooters/bikes out there have similar racks welded/bolted on.

    I know it's just the little 125, but it's so very good-looking.
