Redranger4.0's Motorcycle Build thread.

Yes I know my truck isnt finished and Im starting another project. Since I cant go home to work on my truck cause of school, Im starting a project that I can build in the basement of my apartment.

My roomate has a early 1980's Yamaha Maxim 650 motorcycle. He also has another complete bike that isnt put together. So I bought the other "bike" off of him for $50. This is a generic picture of the bike.

Step 1 is to get the bike all back together and running.
step 2 is to black the bike out, black frame, wheels, tank, everything.
Step 3 is to cut the rear of the frame and make it into a hardtail, hopefully turning out like this.....

Yea my roommate bought his xj650 and the "parts" bike came with it so I figured I might as well put it back together. And I figured I might as well do some mods to it as well.

Did some minor cleaning today on the bike, took the old airbox and battery holder out as they wont be reused after we chop the frame up.

I cut the stock air box up to make it easier to get out of the frame. Im going with pods. Im going to make a set of bars for it, thats the first thing that has to go.

If he copied you, then you copied me.

I've got a 93 f2. Had it for about 3 years now. But it sits in the shop cuz my '05 1000RR gets all the attention now.

Got the motor pulled today. So now I need to get the cams set back up and the timing figured out and we can fire her up. Then we can start really chopping into the frame and getting some work done.
