    I bought my Scrambler 18 months ago. Here she is the day I bought her.

    The silver speedo mounting has always bugged me, so I decided to strip it and paint it black.
    [​IMG]

    The gap between the speedo and the headlight was also annoying as it made the speedo look like it was detached from the bike.
    So I decided to change the headlight brackets for some nice shiny alloy ones and raise the headlight up to close the gap between it and the speedo.
    [​IMG]

    Once I had moved the headlight up, the rectifier looked out of place so I relocated it to the frame along with the ignition switch.
    [​IMG]

    The rectifier bracket under the headlight was replaced with this much smaller bracket and logo.
    [​IMG]

    I had always had a dislike for the white plastic brake fluid reservoir, so I replaced that with a nice black anodised alloy one.
    [​IMG]

    Next came the 3 pot caliper upgrade
    [​IMG]

    By this time the modding demons had taken hold and this TEC 2 into 1 arrived in the post.

    To anyone considering fitting one of these to a Scrambler the pipe does need modifying to accommodate the rear brake master cylinder. I did this using some panel beating irons and a ball pane hammer! (It does say on the TEC website that it needs modifying for the Scrambler)
    [​IMG]

    I was then in full on tracker style mode, so I made a rear light and numberplate bracket and modified the rear mudguard.
    Painted a spare set on bonnie side panels and front mudguard in satin black to match the frame/engine. And fitted the modified Scrambler single seat, minus the rack.

    This is what I ended up with

    So what do you reckon?

    The mirrors have got to go!:D

    Thanks Simon, I will have to have a google for the CRG mirrors to see what they are like.
    The rear shocks are Ikons, but I can't remember the model number.

    Looks good Gump, sometimes I wish I had a red & white Scrambler...I have a red Thruxton & a blue & white Scram. I could play with the red mudguards on the Scram or fit the rear & leave the front white (got a FEK on the Thrux)
    These bikes are so easy to mix & match :clap

    Cheers Terry

    Nice mods gumpt. :thumb

    Did you fill the rack holes on your solo seat tail?
    Some flat track bars would look nice on there!

    Looks good without over doing it. Cool road burner.

    Yes, I picked up a spare seat tail from fleabay, and filled the holes with fibreglass before painting it. You are right about the bars, I am considering some flat track bars and small bar end mirrors to finish it off.

    Sorry gump,

    Unless you are chasing the scared meercat look, I think your headlight is too high. The whole front to rear visual line of the bike would look more coherent (and lower) if the headlight was in line with the tank, seat, cowel etc.

    Is it possible to lower the speedo to achieve that integrated look you were initially chasing?

    Agreed - I really don't care for the line of the bike. I installed a custom speedo which took care of the ugly stock speedo

    You guys are right, the light looks even higher now the gaitors are off.
    I was considering fitting one of these when funds allow,
