Well I'm not talking about the Secret Intelligence Service but my 'Snow Insanity Suppression' (aka my mini winter build).
So it has now been around six weeks since my last ride and to 'suppress the insanity' which is now slowly creeping in I have decided to pull some parts and ideas together for a mini winter build. I will share my progress on this thread on the off chance it may be of interest to members and if nothing else it will keep me busy over the next couple of months while I wait for the snow to clear.
Powder coat (black) my footboards and controls (along with a few other little pieces).
Progress; just dropped these parts off today, ETA six weeks or so.
Fit new black retro exhausts from Bike Bros.
Progress; on order and awaiting delivery.
Fit new custom handlebars.
Progress; these are with a friend in Texas and are almost complete, so hoping to have them soon.
Fit new heated grips.
Progress; taken delivery and will fit these when installing the new handlebars.
Fit new dresser bars.
Progress; taken delivery but struggling to get a nut undone and awaiting on a new tool to assist with this. (Not sure about the dresser bars, so will check them out once fitted. IF I like them I 'may' install a pair of running lights on them but still thinking on this).
Secret project with my side-panels and will share if it works out..
Possibly convert my seat to a sprung one but may not get around to this.
Well that's my plan for the next few months. Will update with progress and photos as the project unfolds.
P.s. a pic added (I know you've seen it before) showing 'Charlotte' snowed in.
