1980 2fo. Started with changing te steer and rear & front brake cilinders. Build a custom ‘oil tank’ with a steel laser at my work. Added the light switches, killswitch, keyswitch and neutral and most of the wiring in there. Replaced all the old wiring. Powder coated the rims and replaced all the wheel bearing and seals.

    Nice job on the seat, and that speedo set up (through the tank?) looks pretty cool. Don’t think I’ve seen that before……

    Nice frontend.

    What Fabbastard said, cool seat and speedometer placement. Is that the stock tail light? Cool relocation.

    Thanks for the positive reactions! The bike runs perfect now! Completely carbs cleaned! Speedo extension cable through the tank and wired. Front end is exactly 33cm longer than the stock tubes.
    Helmet is a “Project”.
