Title: VXafe racer
Post by: Kyg on June 17, 2015, 08:04:41 AM
Hi folks.

In brief:

Bought my fifth Suzuki a month ago. All my bikes I've been building more or less cafe racer style. So it was easy to make the plan with VX.

From the day I bought bike:

Little bit of workshopping:

After two weeks of hard work, 95% ready:

After those pics I painted front forks and couple other parts satin black.

More pics will appear when the finnish weather allows  :rolleyes:

My current bike and all old projects can be found from http://s8.photobucket.com/user/-ahven-/library/ (http://s8.photobucket.com/user/-ahven-/library/)

Hope that it is not sacrilegious act to chop VX like that and introduce it on VX-forum :wub:
