    Hi, I'm new to the forum and also new to TW 200s. I'm from Sydney Australia and these bikes over here get awesome custom jobs from a place called Deus ex machina. I decided to buy a 2nd hand 2001 model TW200 I saw for sale and my friend and I have started to pull the bike apart and do all the customising ourselves cause we've never done it before and thought it would be a good winter project. I'll post some photos of our progress so far and hopefully have it done and on the road in the next few months. Feel free to drop any hints or info on things as we're pretty new to customising. Just learning stuff as we go along.

    Cheers Slinky

    All the gear stripped off it. She hasn't been ridden for over a year apparnelty. Everything was quite seized up. WD40 got a good work out but everything came off easily as most of the parts seem to just clip. on

    Got the back wheel off and found an unseen buckle in it. Sent it off to get straightened out. Hopefully that turns out ok. Just getting all the bits off to get the frame checked out. Fair bit of rust that needs to be treated before repainting the heinous blue frame. I really don't like the colour blue on bikes. I'm going to go for a glossy black look.

    Engines out after some tricky work. Not in bad shape, needs some TLC though. I'm thinking red yamaha symbol and glossy black engine casings. Took a cool instagram pic here obviously

    We often forget what things go where etc. I'm making sure to mark everything so I don't have to muck around for hours trying to find out where the little black cable goes...

    She's got a fair bit of rust on her so I'm treating that before painting.

    Grinding off some tabs while disregarding every safety measure I can think of haha. Probably wouldn't recommend 3D glasses from the movies as goggles either. As Rainier Wolfcastle would say "Ze goggles do nussing"

    Tabs off. Looks much cleaner and linear without them. Now just to sand it down to a clean state and get it cleaned up for painting.
