Show us some pics of what you got. Tires and suspension are good places to start.
With that and you´re paying someone to do the work, I´d say scratch "unique". Having the bike professionally painted alone will set you back a good amount, even for the relatively few parts of a naked.My dilemma is that i have $1,000 - $1,500 to spare and i'd like to make my SV unique.
The ladies probably couldn´t care less whether your bike is another color than the stock red. Leaving the repainting out or doing it yourself (depends on your boldness...) will give you more maneuvring room financially.Idea is to have myself and the bike ready for the ladies by summer.
Look here under "fender eliminators". The other topics also might be of interest.I also thought of getting an untertail assembly but thoese are expensive, can't i just cut it and install brackets there??
Is that paint shop in JC any good? I'm in NNJ and I'm thinking about getting some stuff powdercoated.I see what you're saying and you do make a lot of sense. I was planning on taking the parts off myself hopefully and dropping them off at this paint shop i know on route 1&9 in jersey city. I don't expect it to cost much as i'd like to paint it simple flat black and how hard/expensive could that be? I looked up the $4 door fender eliminator job and i think i''m going to go through with it.
I also came across a front fork thread and will be sending my forks down to traxxion for a $250 upgrade. Hopefully taking the forks out isn't that difficult. Thanks guys.
You might investigate in the direction of a different rear shock if you already do the (highly recommended!) traxxion mod in the front.3) Getting the front forks refurbished by traxxion
What else can/should i do without breaking the bank?
