Been a while since I've been here. Here's my first "customization" project. I did do a "bring it back from the dead" rebuild of another bike before, but more of a restoration than cutting it up and making it mine. Brought this home for $300. Could have done better on the price, but the guy worked with my wife, got hurt and couldn't work, needed the cash. Brought it home in May 2004. Here's what it looked like then:



I bought it to play around with my skills. I didn't weld anything that would kill me if the weld broke going down the road. Lots of time and not much money, this is what it looked like in January 2007. I did a rattle can paint job and everything was either made by me, modified by me or bought very cheaply off ebay. I have since done a little more to it....put the front fender on, new front tire, put bigger turn signals on the rear that kind of look like the front turns, JUST got it inspected today. Also, everytime I spilled gas on the tank it would ruin the clear coat. I just sprayed it with some rattle can engine paint (clear) because it's supposed to be gas resistant. I did spill a few drops on it today and it didn't do anything, so hopefully I solved that. Also, I put a breather filter on the crankcase vent that looks much like the "pod" air filters. Anyway, I'll get some more pics later, but here's the most recent ones I have handy:

o what the hell here is my before and after

the day I bought her


Right now




the seat that will be done some day



I am also building rear sets for it. But winter is coming and funds have shifted to my jeep. I am also going to have paint left over from painting fenders on the jeep and i am thinking about painting the bike to match. What do you think of the color with a black strip down it.

If you're going to correct someone, check your own spelling, dude. It's "CAN'T", not "CANT". They're both words, but you misspelled the one you were trying to use. Ha ha ha ha.
