    fresh paint

    bike was looking a bit tired and needed a chain and sprockets so seeing as the wheel and side case was off i decided to paint you do!
    i used what paint i had left from previous jobs, stripped down to engine and frame, masked up the other few bits then coated the lot in gloss black, came out ok ..especially just for renting.
    the rear end is from a TW225, i also added high bars, i think about 2"

    Share some info on the rear fender/tail light/ blinker set up. It looks really clean. Very well done.

    cheers all,

    rear fender, tail light and indicators and muffler are standard for tw225 from Japan, as is the round headlight
    the low slung muffler is a custom style also from Japan, normally used when they strip the bikes down to a whats called a 'holllow mod'
