I've done all this between thrashing sessions since I bought it in December.

Needs new rear fender, handlebar, and tires, too.

I should also mention that the DT kicks ass.
DT's do kick ass. I have alot of 77-79 It 175 stuff laying in the shed, let me know if you need something as i think alot of stuff is the same. I have enough stuff to build at least 1 complete bike along with a slew of spare parts.

Does the IT175 have the autolube system? If so I could use both pieces of the throttle cable; top and bottom.

No autolube on the IT, premix it.

I have been working on a hard bag setup for my GSX. I found a set of Hepco-Becker racks for it. They are installed, and now I am just waiting for an additional mounting plate set and then I can put the Gobi's off of my KTM on it. The grey bags might look a little funny on the black GSX, but the free price is right. I might spring for new bags in the future.

After I get the bags sorted out, time to pull off the exhaust and put a 4 into 1 system on it. After 30000 miles, the stock pipes are rusting out and have holes in them. I know of some people that were on the 3rd set of stock pipes for their GSX at 30000 miles, so I feel lucky to have made it this far with the stock setup.

needed a lift to do the first major service for my bike. made one today out of stainless in about a hour.




not finished yet, still need to make a top plate and weld it on then blast the whole thing to give it a nice brushed look.

if anyone is interested i can build you one as well.

A welder for some wood replacement? I gotta try that one and see if it works for me!! Mullet i likey the stand for your bike looks fairly compact and functional.
It looks like everyone is kinda ramping up the maintenance and improvements for the sun and riding weather that is just around the corner.

All the wood is held in place by welded in angle iron.

I'm guessing you're not married.
I've worked on my motorcycles before where I lived but that was still in the garage.

actually i am, this was us on our honeymoon last year in spain



it was her idea to do it in the kitchen, that way i would be warm, and can watch the puppy.

and i would be in the garage but it has my other bike, 2 resto projects shoved into the middle while i insulate and drywall it. then i have to install speakers in the ceiling and more lighting before i can work on other projects in there.

New seat

Been spending a bit of time on my new RD350 cafe project lately - started putting together the buck I will use as I form an aluminum seat base and tail section. Lot's of hammer & dolly work plus TIG welding to come!





Thought the SV650 taillight worked out nicely and kind of "flows" with the look I'm heading for.



Got a few months left before it ready for disassembly and paint/polish/plate work. I only work on it for about 3 beers each night and that'll likely slow down when better riding weather get here!

I'd almost rather build shit than ride it when done. Finished projects are boring .

Why is it that when you buy shit that's supposed to bolt right on and when you get done ya just look at it and think "That won't last 100 miles!" Then you spend two days doing it right!

Yup, that much too long!


Ahhhhh, just right....

Does anyone else hate cutting holes in stuff, or is it just me?

Got lucky this time and it worked!

And power plug also, courtesy of "Applejam", thanks AJ!

The suspension get's it on Monday! Summer, here we come.....
