    Custom TW pictures: The Good, the Bad, and the UGLY

    I couldn't find a place to post these pictures so I decided to start a new thread.

    Post pictures of customized TW's whether you like it or not...

    Your own or not...

    Don't get offended if we "critique" the build

    A lot to like there. Really like the old amp meter and the extra sprocket chain guide. I don’t see an oil cooler, probably get roasted nuts with every ride. But pretty cool look and looks like great craftsmanship.

    +1 This thread is a good idea

    Hard to critique the build of this nice model's rack and seat here..seat warmer.jpg

    Yamaha officially teased us with this concept bike a few years ago. concept 2.jpg

    Yamaha never did come out with the high capacity Safari-TW Hybrid Van-a-Bike model, something about the CycleRack quick coupler I hear.cycleracks-com-dr200-rack-2-602-x-452.jpg

    Custom flat trackers make for a good look, like a competitive Bobber. flat reacker.jpg

    Elegant bobbers abound retro.jpg

    But me? I like to roll around in the dirt so a functional TW gets my attention. Wonder where this guy has his picture being taken? north pole.jpg
    Hint: He didn't make it to the South Pole after this successful trip

    The first image...

    It looks nice in a picture, but it also looks like some added weight and lower ground clearance. The framing on the front forks and swing arm seems more aesthetic I'm guessing the suspension is tighter as to not bottom out? Where does the air cooled engine get air from? Unless the upper side fairings channels air down into the engine. Practicality aside it looks like some serious craftsmanship and details worth looking at the link above. Overall I applaud the effort.

    That TW/TY250 hybrid that went to the North Pole is awesome..I would love to see more of them made.

    Your more impressive with each post..

    You should write for a motorcycle magazine. I'm not sure what it is but your posts always seem to have something worth reading in them. You live motorcycle don't you..?

    Okay, honest admission is that this is a Suzuki VanVan 125, but it is a clone of the TW so I figure it fits:
