I picked this up from an inmate the other day: For him it was a bobber project: from this: To this: He started out chopping the rear and relocating the shocks, then adding a seat pan, plus a bunch of work. (photos courtesy of his photobucket account, and mine) My plan is to beef up the suspension, beef up the shock mounts (they are fine for street, but I am big and need them really strong), redo the wheels (but keep the drum brakes) and generally make it look period, but very clean and newish looking. I even hope to fab a set of high pipes for it. Just a first look: Note the modern 2015 R1200GS seat foam and cover I hope to add. I plan on changing the tank to something smaller. I want pipes similar to this: and paint like this except Yamaha yellow: The overall look will be similar, but a lot less chrome. I warn, it will not be a fast project, but I will eventually get it done. By the way, any suggestions for Scrambler type tires to fit R 90/16 4.5" wide 120/90/16 Fr 350/18 3.75" wide, 80/100/18 Preferably matching.
