I caught the bug for riding all things 2 wheeled as a kid and I finally got around to building one up.  Here is my first build, a 1980 650G.  It started as a complete, running, stock bike.  I quickly started removing unnecessary bits.  Soon the entire wiring was out and replaced with a minimalistic system including a mini battery, all hidden under the seat.  



In the back, I cut off the rear hoop, shortened the rear shocks, added a tail light from an FZR1 with integrated signals and a small fender.  I used a sporty tank to give it a narrow feel.  Up front a shaved the forks and lowered the front. I replaced the front master cylinder with one from a dirt bike and got rid of everything on the bars I didn’t need.  Its a blast to ride.  As always, its a work in progress, and could look different next month.
