    My old / new TW200

    New user here. Just thought i would share some pics of my 87 TW200 my son and I just finished. I bought it new in 87 but it has sat for the last 15 years. I forgot how much fun this little bike was.

    Awesome look. Hope you enjoy the TW for the next 15 years...riding it! haha. Minnesota is looking a little rainy by the looks of it in the pictures.

    Great looking '87!

    You and your son sure did a nice job of upgrading the look of your 30+ year old bike. How are those decals/stickers sticking to your Clarke tank?

    Welcome to the forum,

    It was a very wet April and May. Friday through today have been 75 and sunny though. We were able to put a few miles on it over the weekend. Runs like a new bike.

    They are sticking good. We used PPG DX330 wax and grease remover on it 1'st. Made sure it was 70 plus degrees when we applied them. Then let it sit in the sun after. We have a new chain for it too just haven't put it on yet. Only has 1878 miles on it.

    The plastics are original as well. We just sanded them down and painted with single stage PPG with flex additive.

    Hrm, please report back in 30 days and let us know if those decals are still not bubbling off the Clarke tank. Bike looks great. Nice job.

    Very impressive! I just assumed that you had picked up a set of newer plastics. I am glad that you ditched the yellow fork boots !

    Are those the original tires ?

    Nice job! Quite a testament to the build quality that the older TWs are still going strong.
