Here is my 1st bike, its an old T-250 hustler I picked up off hatch last year. I decided to make it look like a vietnameese military bike... or something like that... Its more of a play toy that I wanted to look strange.. the background bike is an 85' VF700 that my brother will never finish.. :D

Now that looks like a fun little bike.

I had a 71 T500...wish I still had it. I could never get all the wiring sorted out. Got frustrated. Sold it.

About a month later, the new owner sent me a pic of it at a vintage track day.

thanks for the kind words guys... Once I am healthy its getting finished an my sister wants it to learn how to ride... I'm still gonna cruise it 1st though, I love how loud, smelly and obnoxious it is...

Hatch - Thanks for the paint tips, I cant even open that thread. Laughing hurts my belly right now... I had to get an ice pack on it after reading it the 1st time.

I have a 1969 T500 that is in perfect condition, I am making it look like it came off the track in 1969 with clubman bars and old school fairings. Fun bike

Sorry about the laughing.....I'll try to be boring instead. How about paint it like a HD Vrod....then you have a ricer copying a harley, copying a ricer design that was designed to piss off the japs for copying HD's.....now I'm confused.:confused: ...notice the lack of a smiley face to keep you from laughing.

Can't wait ti see some pics of yours!

I love/hate looking at pics of my old T500. Makes me wish I had never got rid of it. As far as 70s Japanese bikes go, you can't beat the shape of a Titan's tank.
