Just recently bought a 90 Transalp and really liking it, except for the stock seat. Anyone have any suggestions for improvement (not Corbin) to stop me sliding into the tank! Has anyone made any "home-improvements" on the seat?

Just a thought, but you might have more luck in the Transalp modification thread.

I really like how the white AT has been modified. Removed all the cowl bits and installed that small enduro light. Nice higher fender too.

Some mor of the white one

Hi Modover,

the styling is a kind of homebrew. I found some more pics of my 2003 Algeria trip (the 2004 Arabia and NZ pics are still to be scanned)










Bevor I set off for Arabia I modified this and that (Elkamet tank, TT aluminium panniers, TT crashbar..). Well after I scanned some of the slides I'll post some pics.

Cheers

Dirk

Dirk,

Great! THAT is the way to use an AT!

That AT looks so in its element.

It appears the front cowl was actually still used... just cut down. Cool. That really is a great looking bike.

Yep, that's right, just cut down. I got these cow´ls from a spare parts dealer for a few bucks only. So I wasn't too hysteric cutting the plastic ...

The fender and the headlight are Acerbis parts, not too expensive. The only thing I worried about was the speedo. To keep the whole thing simple, leightweight and cheap at the same time it attached a Sigma speedo for pushbikes and some tiny lights for indicators, high beam ...

Cheers Dirk
