Workshop Wednesday 2016 #4

Plumbing: Oil lines are installed, waiting for clamps but it will look pretty clean when ready. No more shitty "Braided" oil lines, just plain rubber will do the job. This is almost the last real big job to be done and than it will be placing the battery, clutch cable, exhaust, airfilter etc etc, well not really the last big job then.

Workshop Wednesday 2016 #3

Before I opened Paul's Boutique BMX I was saving money for a BUELL S3 Thunderbolt like you see in the picture. I liked the idea to have a fast "Harley-Davidson" to commute between house and work but it never happened. In 2003 I bought a Buell X1and till today I only rode about 5K km with it and its time to use it more. I will turn this motherfucker into a "bagger" with bags, backrest, GPS and a windscreen. I was looking for a windscreen on the internet and everything I saw sucked so I made one fram an old windscreen laying in the workshop. Need some finetuning but I guess I will like it, next up is a proper GPS, NO TOMTOM cause I hate that company! Guess it will be a Garmin.
