I got a pretty cheap tank from ebay that somebody had spray bombed black. They must have stripped the factory paint from it before they did that, so I went ahead and sanded most of the paint off the tank. When I was done for the night, I threw it on the bike as is. I'm actually thinking of leaving the little dings and clearing it as is, or getting all the old paint off and polish it, then clear it raw. Whaddya think?

if you are going to keep it raw I think getting the rest of the paint off would look better cleared than it does now.

either way, the bike is looking good!

Thanks. I'm pretty happy with how it's going.

Just picked this little guy up the other day. It's a '97 TW200 with 3400 miles in about perfect condition, even came with a rack for the back that I haven't put on yet. I'm looking forward to hitting some trails and saving a ton of gas going back and forth to work.

My DRZ400s is finally done. Just have to deal with the intermittent rear brake and put a cowl in the trucklite 5x7 LED headlight that I now have. This is what it looked like during mock up. That's an XJ headlight bucket... and no...I didn't do the work. A much more capable person did.

Changed the engine oil/primary oil.. New tires. Was perfect for riding, inland was much warmer than by the lakeshore

left yesterday at 0600 with 2 friends and my son headed for silver lake (my son has been after me to take him to ride the dunes). i manned the grille and beer cooler and they rode from 10 til about 4...they had a blast an my kid got to "break-in" his christmas gopro3.

today on my streeter i finished wiring and cleaning up my passing lamp install, changed oil/filter and put new windshield/lowers on it.


buddy of mine came over and took a ride up to bay city.
on our way up buddy wanted to stop at at menards at m15/69 ...we pulled up to the doors and there was a chick sitting on the ground next to "cheryl" (her '79 sporty) frantically trying to put her gear shifter back on (it fell off on her way to a bike show over in holly).
spent 15min or so cobbling it back together (as "cheryl" was pretty much completely cobbled anyway) and adjusted her clutch cable. i took it around the lot to make sure all was good (looked just like rockstar only on a much smaller bike). in the end got hugged by a biker chick in leather chaps (fap fap fap) hope she made it to her show...

i'm sunburnt

This is my ride, went for a good ride today and stopped in this church parking lot on orchard lk and took some glamor shots. 2012 softail Deluxe that I'm going for the southern california cholo style; 14" carlini gangster apes, 39" samson true dual cholos, 18" front and 16" rear DNA mammoth 50 spoke wheels with WWW tires, ShotGun shock air ride in the rear to slam it down and soften up the ride when needed. I'm running a TW222 cam to bring back some of the lost low end torque from the true duals. I love it.

I like the bike a lot, other than the exhaust, sorry, but that is hideous.

Lol, I get mixed reviews on it a lot. I like it so that's all that matters I guess, my group of friends it's 50/50 split on like it or hate it.

I had 33" fish tails on it until yesterday when I installed the 39" pipes, here's a pic pre wheels-

That is not the American way. Take out More loans and max out more credit cards. Bankruptcy is always an option after you live it up!

Still waiting to get the carbs back for the Viragoster, but I just felt like wheeling it out to take a picture on the nice green grass.
