Tank and bike look good. Why is the kickstand so short? Did you replace the shock or forks already? Look forward to seeing it with the upgrades.

Brock, I think the kickstand is on a block to hold the bike upright for photographic purposes. This is a common trick seen in the bike magazines to show the bike profile and not have it leaned over on the side stand.

when I got it



Let me insert "DUH" after my comment. I realized the answer after I submitted my question. And they say there are no dumb questions. I question that question.



We look forward to seeing your finished product.

little update...time for some new parts to be installed...





put on the new pegs...one of the mounts looked like it got smashed on a rock so i had to straighten it out



great how-to thread by mudpuppy here...

http://tw200forum.com/index.php?/topic/148-oversized-foot-pegs-from-ebay-china/









then i moved on to changing the brake pads...got the rears on just fine...the front set weren't right (damn you ebay)...

edit: the new pads were the same but the springs were different





since i couldn't finish that i decided to get the bars on there...waiting to get it on the ground before i set the bars and tighten everything and put the new mirrors on...





there she sits, waiting...

Good thread Point, I like where this is going. Havent seen anyone do a hollow mod and keep the rear plastics, pretty unique bike you're building

Thanks TeeDubs. I like the way it looks with the rear plastics on it minus the side covers plus they help keep the mud off me. At the same time I'm undecided on the black splash guard in the rear. I think I may take that off and put on new front and rear blinkers, a new tail light and a plate mount or I may just do the blinkers and tail light and leave the guard the way it is.



Clark tank looks great


Thanks xdac. When I went to look at the bike to buy it I saw the original tank looked like it had been repaired with bondo or something and then I saw it leaking gas so I told the owner if he threw in a new tank I would buy it. I kept the old tank but that won't get fixed since this one holds more fuel and won't rust out on me.

Lots of options, you might want the splash guard if you're getting into lots of mud especially with the open air filter... I'm kinda in the same situation cant decide what all I want to do with my bike... So far i put a blaster shock on it and I bought cone filters and made a tray for the hollow look but decided to keep the air box because I mostly use my TW off road... That is also why I want another TW to have for the streets



You should post pics and any problems you run into with installing new indicators I'm also looking into doing that

yea i would love to have 2 of these bikes as well...they are such a blast to rip around on!



i will def post up when i put the signals on...as far a signals go i was thinking something that looks like these...all i know is i want them to be smaller in size (i.e. not look like tumors growing off the bike), dual filament up front (3 wire connection) and single filament rear (2 wire connection), hopefully a short bendable stem (like the stockers) and non-led signals cause i don't want to wire in any resistors like i did to on my streetbike cause the flash rate was so fast it didn't even look like they were blinking

or these...

Love your build up Point37. Looks really good. I especially like the hollow mod and with the plastics left on. In fact I was thinking of doing the same thing on the build I am currently working on...



Great bike! Keep posting as you make progress!

Thanks Todd. Wasn't really able to get too into it this weekend but I did get the front brake pads on but when I reconnected the cable it was having a hard time sliding through the cable housing so I would grab the brake and let go and spin the wheel and you could see/hear that the brakes were still grabbing. I tried to run some wd40 through the housing then just said screw it and broke down and bought a new cable. Then while I was on the computer I ended up buying a seat pad, blinkers and hand guards. I'm going to have to relax on buying stuff for this bike now for a while hehe.

finally got around to doing a little work this past weekend...put on my new front brake cable...pulled the exhaust can and replaced the gasket between the header and the can...adjusted and tightened all the handlebar controls in addition to adding a set of powermadd brush guards and some ebay underbar mirrors...i left the stockers on there cause i want to see how i like the new ones before i take the others off so i held off on putting the grips on for now...still have a coleman seat pad, front and rear blinkers, front and rear sprockets and an o-ring chain to put on

looking at taking off the mudflap...already have the turn signals...looking at a couple rear tail light/licence plate light setups...probably have to make a bracket but it shouldn't be too hard...i'd like to find one with red lenses to make it look more legal
