from special to classic

Bought the bike as a somewhat customized Special. It’s a 1980 model. Couldn’t decide on street tracker och classic, but went for the latter.

Found a seat on the bay which I redid with a new cover. Painted the tank and fender in the garage. New handlebars, grips, mirrors, speedo. Emgo shorty exhaust. Painted the wheels black.

She’s not quite finished yet, but i’m pretty happy with the look, i was going for a more classic 60’s/70’s style. Thanks for all the inspiration on the site!

    A classic bike with carbon fiber? lol

    No carbon here 🙂 The sides are a replacement car grille.

    Oh sorry, my bad. The bike looks nice, a vast improvement from what it was.

    Yeah, the grips are great, a little on the soft side but the color makes up for it 🙂
