I wanted to see if I could get this old motorcycle into shape where I could ride it around and fell the freedom of the open road.
I wanted to begin what I’ve found to be an extremely rewarding hobby by learning how to build, repair, and ride my first actual motorcycle. I felt like if someone is going to put so must trust into a machine then they had better know how that things runs. But, I wanted something fun and something that was styled to my liking.
Giving it its bobber style..Trimming the rear fender, removing the stock seat, re-wiring the lights for some retro hardware.
I’m just proud that I did what the people around me said couldn’t be done. I turned an ugly old rotted bike into a reliable bobber that has carried me a few thousand miles now without anything other than minor adjustments.
They told me it was “my little piece of shit”. They didn’t like that even though it was a small 250cc it was louder, kept up with, and got more attention then some other bikes.
