PostSubject: Bennie customs 'Fuck Yeah'   Tue Mar 15, 2011 10:56 pm


Sold my virago in january, the black ones with zombie green scollops,
because on xmas day i won the bid for a 1980 sr500

Here we are.

This is it in its glory, pretty good bike.

I had jody up at hkr do the hardtail, he rung me up to give the bad news, the fuckin frame was bent! Jody spent a fair few hours getting it straight, but some blow torches and some love that shit was tight!
And a 4" stretch too..



Now i realise i havnt been taking photos.
fuck

anyway so this week i got the ribbed duckbill rear fender i got from lowbrow through elboneshaker.co.nz
made some straps up for it and its sitting so fuckin flush its almost rubbing. Rad!

Tank took major work, i had a friend of mine whos and engineer lop the whole bottom of the king sporty tank off so it'd fit me frame and oil cap.

tonight i got the lady round to help me strip the bike and lift out the motor, whole bike currently stripped down. Soudns liek a mission but took the better side of ten mintues. God bikes are easy

I got lazy/impatiant so i went and grabbed a white diamond biltwell seat from elboneshaker and a biltwell seat bracket and some hairpin springs-looks wicked cool. wish i had a photo dam

Heres an old photo i took a month ago when i was mocking up the attack bars. decidded to run straight ones


Seeing as i cant weld for shit, i was owed a favor (re painted the cunts car twice for free) so my buddy nate dropped round, and pulled out his skills and welded my shit up!



Oh and i borrowd a polisher


Whats left to do is..

*Paint, i've flake my fender and tank, just gotta line up the grafics on it and decide what color candy to shoot over the flake

*Sissy Bar! Plan is to have a sissy bar straight up and down, no angle liek u see on choppers or whatever, and run it about 2m high. Yes i know it'll look stupid and nobody will like it, but thats how i liek it. Fucked up, and have heaps of people say i should have done it another way. Thats MY way.
And im doing it candy pink flake too .


plan is to build a clean bike, no paticular style. MY style.

im pretty fuckin pumped to ride it, and the satisfaction and hours put in to it are going to be worth it.

Off to scottys hopefully sunday to get wired up Twisted Evil

Excellent job Ben. I think Jody's frames are getting better every time. Really nice lines. Get some pics of the paint and get Byron to stick on some pics of his SR. Looking forward to seeing them out on the road soon. Are you going to put it in Grinderfest?

Nah. Pics are good enough but bring it round when you get it running. We should take all the SR's for a run round the town to see what the reaction is. Have fun on Saturday Cool

So during the weekend i got a few bits and bobs done, i mounted my electro box's, byron came and put my new tranparent coil lead on (thanks bro) and i made a taillamp/number plate bracket and footgrips.
Sent it to get wired last night.
Tonight i masked up the patterns for the fender, and masked up panels and a rising sun on my tank because pretty much everything japanese rules.
Light silver base, then laid down some heavy silver flake, here it is with 'creature' candy green..
