As I can't leave anything alone I'm working along these lines :P

This fecker (mine) has a 19 inch front wheel :?

Don't want to do a great deal but plans are

Wider spoked rims
Fruity pipes
longer rear shocks
remove rear mudguard
Flatter bars
Angel eye headlamp (like I have on the LC and it looks retro}
Thruxton seat with the rear cowl/cover

It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice.

Yeah me too but those suckers don't half keep their prices :?
This way (gulp) I may get a Thruxton look a like with a few other mods :?: on the cheap

Bikes and the word cheap hardly go together though do they [-X

Nice bike ive been looking at a Bonneville or a Kwack W800 as a swap for my GS650 as mines a bit tall. Second hand prices are very strong. Your bike looks like it has had panniers fitted, looking at the bar by the rear shocks. The aftermarket for Thruxton bits is also massive.

Worst bike I ever owned.....T140V Bornevil, leaked oil from places that didn't have any oil in them :(
Sounded nice and looked nice (Blue/silver teardrop tank)

Always wanted a Tiger.....should have waited #-o

Started stripping the clocks,headlight,indicators off etc
Going to get the 4 idiot lights mounted in the headlamp shell like the old'ns :P so just have a single clock for that minimal look
Going to take off what I can to save weight as I think it only puts out high 50's horse power :wink:

Front mudguard is as heavy as a KR1 :shock:

Working progress at the moment :mrgreen:
Will fit a short plastic front muddy plus looking at a retro tri bar headlamp shell and some black bullet style indicators
Also looking at a Lucas style rear light so lots to do 8-[
