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.
