Default Im gonna beat it....

So I have owned my 02 883 since Valentines Day this year. At first I was thinking it would suck until I could chop it to sh%T,but the more I ride this bike it becomes my FAVORITE. I have owned bigger and smaller bikes but this is the best all around.It almost makes going to work worth it. Im gonna beat it to death...

Anyway. As I said I am going to be making some changes to the bike and I wanted to start a thread to keep track of progress. Untill I have enough scratch saved up for the frame I will be making or buying parts here and there.

Started Seat pan today. Not perfect,but I made it and to that is better than one that cost me money.


I didnt take a pic of it prying to being cut b/c I did it quickly on break @ work.


Cleaned up a little.


Here is side view to see where I worked it over.

Not anything special to guys building big dollar abortions,but MINE.

Will update with more pics and parts.

Cheers

Thanks.Already fooling around with ideas of a oil tank.

Started making a octagon shaped one,but thinking of going a different direction. I have all of the tools at work minus a decent sander,so I plan of making everything I can make and more.
