Thanks!!! I'm super stoked on it. I've had a blast building it. The headlight is a huge improvement over stock and was super easy to install.

You forgot to spray paint the wheels too! I'd go with a black headlight if that's what you're going for...



Looks nice though, good work!

It looks good! I like the exhaust, different way to get that naked tail look without hanging it under the bike



What size is that headlight? What bike did it come from? Where can I get that speedo? Does it have the pilot/indicator built in?



I bet that's going to be a blast to cruise around town

Thanks guys.



Teedubs - all my lighting and speedo came from a company called dimecitycycles.com. They are awesome dudes. Very helpful! The speedo doesn't have any of the indicator lights. The exhaust actually came from them too. Check their website out. They have a lot if cool stuff!

Lots of hard work there. I am a fellow that seems fixated on symmetry. Should it be doable having that speed-o mounted from the center point of the headlite would be 'old school' and I think, really nice. Perhaps a well planned hole top and bottom by using a 'stepped drill' would allow the speed-O cable to pass thru headlite housing. I don't want you to wreck anything, but I certainly think it might be doable if you thought it worth the effort.



Nice example of "Hollow-Mod" can I put your pictures on the TW Wikipedia site to inspire others? Gerry

Very cool looking bike

Did you put in a different shock ? I looks like the seat is higher then normal.



Nice exhaust also, I should heath wrap it, with brown wrap, would look awesome.

I think you should reconsider the build. I understand the excitement and wanting the ride,but going over the entire bike with a flat black rattle can is too much. Your build has soo much potential. I have had my bike since last july and I am still not at where I want it. I am in no rush. Cause when you reach that peak. Your done and I am one of those guys who likes the build more than anything.

I just ordered wrapping for the exhaust. Should look amazing!


I think so 2




Please post a picture of it when you wrapped it, really curious how it's going to look.



I also like your tailsection, small rearlight.



Maybe you can bring some colour in it with a colourful decal ( sticker ? ) on your fueltank, I guess they sell the Yamahasign in different colours.

But I like it black, especially the black rims, tires look even fatter that way.



I tried to get some colour in by painting the " Yamaha " of the engine
still not sure if I'm gonna keep it or repaint it again black.



some piccies of it :



before :







after :
