This sorta reminds me of a hawkgt on roids. I have 3 vfrs right now, 1 94 i'm restoring, 1 93 parts bike, and another naked 94 that's been out back in the shed for a few years.
I like the single round up front, might do that with my naked one, but probably go with something a little smaller, maybe even a vrod rep light.
I couldnt tell from the pics, but how did you mount it? Doesnt look like the light you picked out has side mounts like most mc headlights. You make a bracket and mount it from the bottom to the existing front stay holes?
Good work my friend! Definitely some motivation to get my old bike out of the shed...
I went round and round in my head about doing a V-Rod light. and the idea still turns me on a bit. I just decided it wouldn't fit the feel I was going for. as far as mounting brackets go... it is just a standard off road style light with a single post on the bottom. all I did was make up a simple gusseted bracket that mounts onto the lower triple.
I bought a ducati pantah last year that was in need of a lot of work, it had already been butchered so it wasn't worth a resto.
Out came the sawzall, this is what it looks like now!
forks are sportclassic, lower triple is fom a 696, with the old steering tube installed, front wheel is 999.
The purpose of this thread is to document my new-to-me 2000.5 Mille. Purchased 3/30/12.
As you can see, the bike has just shy of 50,000 miles. Does not appear to leak a drop of oil and generally looks to have been cared for fairly well.
Age, mileage, and a bit of winter has taken their...
Picked up my winter project for later this year. Always wanted one. Kid was moving tomorrow and needed money for school. It is rough!. Rough but complete with the little bits intact that are difficult to find today.
Surprising was the OEM exhaust after all these years. It is very quiet. Brakes...
I have not found a straight answer for this. And I have searched pretty hard. And if have missed it in these forums I apologise.
I want to relocate the coolant bottle on a BMW G 650 X. I want to put it lower than the original location.
I understand that it works on pressure changes to suck...
