Hi there, was wondering . Did you have to modify the tank to fit , if so in what way.

Hi, I just had to cut the original bracket, It was pretty easy, 5 minutes and a dremel.


About the fenders...
Here in Italy it's pretty hard to find cheap good parts, everytime i read what you guys usually pay for parts back in US it makes me wanna move there
Initially I wanted something custom made but I asked around and the price was crazy: 2000 E
So i bought these 2 for 180E online, the front one is stainless, the rear one is Alu.
I know it isn't usual to have fenders in 2 different metals but I'm 22, student/broke so I had to improvise

Dunno if you're interest but 2day i finished the logo:




I love it

Tomorrow I'm gonna order a couple of pvc stickers ( one on the headlight, the other one on the helmet)
and i was also thinking about ordering a patch for my leather jacket

Hope you guys had a great weekend, I spent mine studying dermathology

Nice work. Shameful "they" aren't building a nice 400-600cc, 6 speed retro enduro style bike. They are missing the boat on the aging guys who started on XR75s and 1974 DT250s.

You've built a very good looking bike.

Hello Vitto,
very nice bike!!!
Congrats from Germany, Bambi
PS: may I ask, how many litres of petrol that tank takes? I'm working on a Suzuki GN 400 Tracker and I don't like the line of it's original tank, rising towards the head-stock. Your solution might solve this problem ...

Sorry, I have a proposition for your headlight. Overall, it's very good looking. But I'd slide it down a bit, I think this would lead to a more 'mass-centralized' appearance ...
Kind regards, Bambi
PS: In case, that you need more alloy-fenders: May I lead you to this web-site http://www.trophy-sport.de/shop/inde...l--Teile-.html ? If you'd be in need for some translation, feel free to ask me! The price-tags for the stock fenders can be read in any language. He also offers custom-made alloy-parts. But the prizes for these have to be calculated ...

great looking bike. i did a little reading. the honda nx650 is rated at 44 hp and weighs in at 370 lbs. and the triumph scrambler 54 hp (carbed) and 506 lbs (wet). i think you have the sportier bike.

Hi everybody!
Here's a little update:

Let's start with the bad news:

4 months ago, the FIFTH day I was using the bike, finally completed, an extremely stupid guy decided not to stop at a red light and ran over me.

I was hurt pretty bad (30 days with crutches) and Bellerofonte, my beloved new bike was hurt also.

Fork destroyed
Front wheel destroyed
Headlight destroyed
Tank dented

and so on...

After I got better I left for 2 months for a medical mission in Macedonia and Sudan. ( That was really on of the craziest and greatest experience of my life)

Now I've been working in my spare time to cure my Bellerofonte,

Tomorrow I'll post some pictures,

Be careful, Ride On.

P.s. The tank is 7 liters and I usually get at least 150km, maybe more!

I followed your advise about the headlight, and thanks for the tip with the website!

Tomorrow I'll post some pictures!
