This has an interesting story, if I remember it correctly. Essentially Taiwanese law doesn't allow modifications basically at all, but they're also somewhat lax on inspections, so if you can modify it so it still looks kind of like something stock (and god knows Harley sells so many variations of everything it wouldn't be hard), then it's not too hard to get away with. So he did.

That's choice! What's going on with the rear tyre and the paddock stand though? You'd reckon if it's worth shopping, you'd get rid of the paddock stand altogether.

Like the CBX six-pots too thanks Tel, especially the first one with the red frame.

This bike is so sick. I have been trying to figure out what kind of old-school bike to build. This may have pushed me over the edge...

I too love this particular bike.

I also highly endorse the idea of building projects around these Yamaha SR/XT/TT 500 singles. Clean examples of all 3 are out there for not a lot of money, all sorts of parts are still available for performance and styling, and in the end, you will have a light weight bike that is likely more fun and reliable than just about any other vintage ride.

And I say that not just to make myself feel better about my impending cash dump into my old SRX600, the evil spawn of the 500 singles.




As you can see with this OMC SR500 in Seeley Replica frame, the sky, your imagination and your wallet are the only limits.

Yeah that's what I really like about it. The mods are subtle but make the bike SO much better/cooler. I LOVE that front wheel, he modified an Iron rear wheel to run on the front. He says he's going to offer all of the parts from his web site (Roughcraft). I'd love to do that to a Nightster. But then I guess it would just be a 48... lol

And I'll tell you to get an XS engine. They're SO much better looking.
