    TW225 custom build in Hong Kong

    hi everyone!
    been stalking the forums the last few months as a I work on a buddies TW225. Picked up this neglected, rusty TW in fall of last year. Stripped it, started buying new parts, and then welded up a new subframe, new tank, battery box, sump guard, saddle, new aluminum front fender, new tires, speedo and mount, headlamp, led tail light and turn signals, exhaust, intake, modified to a Brembo front brake, rebuilt the front fork and the list keeps going. but happy to see it finally come together with the best, WIRING left to last.

    Let me know if you guys have any questions or comments on how ive butchered this tw.

    subframe just got chopped and welded up on the frame

    cut a slot in the tail section of the subframe so i could slide in a brightASS LED strip for the brake and integrated signals

    Hey @Psychomotor!

    Are you a gweilo or a local? HK Island based, or Kowloon / NT?

    I’ve just purchased my very first bike, and am in Happy Valley. Would love a local buddy to help me with fundamental (read “dumb”) questions, in particular Motogadget installation... Would you be up for it?

    Cheers,

    Andy

    HK represent! (not from there but have family over by the Prince Edward station)

    Really curious, where do you guys ride? I imagine riding over to the south side of the Island or over to Sai Kung must be nice and chill.

    edit pretty bike also!
