Bleeding brakes was SO easy using a vacuum pump. I now use it on bicycle hydrolic brakes too.
I customized the front fork bridge, turned it around and gave it a shot of black, so it looks nicer and bolted on the newly polished brass T coupling. It is now the only front fender on the bike.
New aluminum banjo bolts and new crush washers was added.
A brake switch /banjo bolt is what i used for the rear

The front headlamp was also modified, from the chrome boulbus vintage headlamp all was discarted exept for the ring and side bolts .
I the modified the position of the ears so the lamp was not sticking out so much, it also gives it a more modern look i think

Spring was here, the deadline was up and the thing did not start...
I could not get pass the bulb monitoring or something...
The Motogadjet was pretty much working, indicator lights was fine .
So out with the buchared wire harness, in with the untouched one.
Now with the original instrument cluster, we got it started..
(It was not that easy)

How does it ride you ask?
Not like a k1100 in full touring mode thats for shure.
So we got to ride it all summer,
On his way from Montréal Buddy A. Got a good scary wobble Coming out of a curve.
So up whent a steering damper, which made everything much better and securely planted

Buddy also got a rear frame loop installed so the rear end looks much better and finished

100km...
I say max 100km is how far you can go with this bike before your body hurts,
The position on and over the gas tank is tucked and compact, but the clip ons and rear set are at a good place,so you just endup riding it as if it was your last day on this planet: fast and agressive.
It is soooo much fun, this motor is amazing

I have moved this thread from Member's Introduction to Renovation/Customization since the original category no longer applies.

Nice work.
