Looks great! Can't wait to see the graphics you come up with! I'm impressed, 4000 miles in 9 months! You are a rockstar!
So, I started off as a Old Chevy car kid, Got an 84 el camino first that I fixed up, now I have a 68 Chevelle that started out as a V6 an is now a 400 horsepower small block v8, with a T5 Borg warner sitting behind it. My father is my main influence and the beginning of my love for manipulating metals and fixing up a desperate situation!
Anyways I bought a tw200 about 9 months ago BRAND NEW. I now have over 4,000 miles on her and have a couple of mods on it!
This is where it all began!
My first "mod" was the foot pegs, the other ones are WAY to skinny! I took these pegs off of a kx100 frame and had to grind down the sides to make it fit within the bracket, I also had to drill a small hole in the bottom right hand portion, of the inside of the peg where the return spring seats, I did this to use the stock spring for the bracket 20 minutes and I got a nice pair of pegs that would've cost $50 on the internet! I prepped them (a bit poorly as i just wanted to ride!) and sprayed them with a rustoleum flat black paint.
This side is a bit bent from the other bike, but oh well! haha
The next step was the Custom tailight that cost me $20 on ebay and $10 in aluminum sheeting!
I was told by "rainman" that the tabs break off after a while. I'm going to make threaded tabs to weld on for when that happens!
This mod took about 20 minutes, along with the Short aftermarket LED BLINKERS.
Here's here rear end
Next, I swapped out the front blinkers and put some TUSK Handlebars and Tusk Handguards on the bike! I REALLY love how comfortable the bars feel now! And the handguards are keeping my hands warm during the cold nights I commute! (Yes, New Mexico gets cold!) I took off the stock graphics as I perceived it to look like a toy(probably more so now! But I love motocross and stickers) I have a local graphics company making some graphic ideas for me!
heres a pic with the old blinkers
Here's a side by side comparison of the length of both the new and stock turn signals!
AND FINALLY HER CURRENT CONDITION! I cut the front fender because my puppy loves to eat plastic! I was initially mad but after stepping back and staring at it, I find it to look better than stock! haha A new supermoto fender is definitely in the works! along with SHINKO street tires, or the BF tw203/204's, and a blaster shock. I'm also looking into a new headlight of some sort! I have the turn signals,pegs, brake light, and stock handlebars all available for sale. I will be updating this build here soon with new graphics and the others as mentioned above!
Feel free to text(575-639-5150), PM, Or email me with any questions or even ideas! This FORUM MAKES THE BIKE 10 TIMES BETTER THAN IT IS(which is already bada$$) Ride on my friends!

Looks great. The stickers make it look like a sweet motocross bike. I never thought about doing that to the front fender but it looks awesome.
If you can't find it, grind it
cool setup, stickers make it look competition style.
Thanks MRBRACKET! I love your bike and the procycle page that you helped develop! I will be making some orders here soon! I can't stay off this bike! I use it to commute to my fiance's house because she lives 9 miles away from me, My V8's gas tank isn't too fond of that!
point37 & 671dub: Thanks! I love the look of motocross stickers! I'm working with a graphic designer for a metallic blue graphic design! hopefully i'll have something within a couple of months!
Point37: I REALLY LOVE YOUR HUSKY! I'm EXTREMELY JEALOUS!
Rainman: I was about to bury my dog for chewing it up, I ended up buying her a bone because it looks better! haha Accidents sometimes look better!
I am huge fan of motocross as well (rider/racer). I am a huge fan of stickers as well LOL! Like the trimmed front fender reminds me of an FMX bike like what twitch (Jeremy Stenburg)does to his CRF450R's. Very cool and I am excited to see the graphics when they are done.
If you get a chance take of the stock boot covers and put some fork seal protectors on instead. That with the sumpermoto fender mod would be sweet looking for a supermoto look.
