    I got the inspiration from the TW skate bike that was featured on Pipeburn (I think that's the site), though unlike that bike, I turned the skateboard upside down so it will mimic a fender. Not totally sold on it but until I find something better I'll stick with it. If I do stick with it, once I paint the tw tank I'm going to design a custom logo and paint scheme for the skate deck to match the tank and have the deck printed thru boardpusher.com

    You should make the seat and a tank shroud out of wood as well.



    Interesting to see the variety of things one can do with a motorcycle!

    I have seen one cut to make a tracker-style seat. Looked terribly uncomfortable though. That don't look half bad, but you gotta expand on the theme. Make a skidplate out of one. It probably wouldn't be the best skidplate, but a good base for putting it on a stand. I think someone on the old board used a urethane wheel to act as the tensioner for the drive chain when the stock one wore out. Maybe use a hacked up board on its side as a chain cover.



    So many possibilities.

    I'm probably going to swap it for a black deck and make a tail light using a wheel and some LEDs. Don't want to go overboard and end up with a theme bike or nothin'. I think once the tank and the deck are painted the same color it won't stand out so much. Below is a cool link on homemade tailights.

    That's a pretty neat light. I was just brainstorming on board ideas, but yeah, it would be an odd theme to do. Now a board rack like Deus puts on their bikes would be great for me.

    What you oughta do is drill out a truck (is that what they're called?) and do two more wheel lights with orange for signals.

    Thanks, it still needs work but it's getting there. Looked into the use of trucks for turn signals and here is a good example if anyone is interested.
