    I saw this and wanted to share it...looks like it could be a very fun bike for the road racer...

    That bike really needs different tires.

    Your right... It needs some urban tires instead of trail tires.



    Once the exhaust pipe replaces the skid plate and the fenders get thrown out, it's hardcore trail riding days are over.

    That seat looks more comfy than a BMW 450x

    Looks nice except for the seat, then he starts the TW anemic engine. With that seat the cafe better be close. It's a floor cushion for standing on.

    A similar one here:







    When James Kellas left England for Australia, he had to leave his drag-racing hobby at home. So he ordered a TW200 to use as a commuter bike, and tore it apart. He installed a fuel tank from an RD250 and added clip-ons, new wheels and a longer swingarm. (As you can see from the picture, James has a great eye for color too.) He also fitted a new seat, exhaust and air filter. The little 196cc thumper now has a good turn of speed. Last month it clocked 74 mph—that’s 119 kph—during the Australian Speed Week, setting a new national open class 250cc record at Lake Gairdner.
