Google An-bu, their blog was down and couldn't link the images. I think Bikeexif.com did a spread on them a while back with some more images, you can search there as well. They'll be mixed 250 and 650 though.

There are some indonesian guys that will blow your mind with their small bore stuff. If i can find the link I'll post it.

Here it is, scrol back into the older posts:

Love Harley's and Triumph's but small bore japs are cheaper and easier to get parts for.

Nice, really nice. Is that the stock exhaust? It came with a nice shape if it is. How did you do the rear fender? It looks a lot bigger than a 250. If an SR250 head will fit it I have a severly ported and polished one you can have. I spent hours doing it before a wrecked YFM350 showed up in my shed and I figured out the engines were compatible.

Back guard is CBG (cut by grinder) standard cut down. Standard pipes, nice shape but restrictive, shes pretty basic but i like the look, has twin primer'ish grey stripes from rear fender to front fender. i'll chuck up another pic.. Made up me hard tail struts yesterday at a mates work shop, slammed it right out.

If you have access to a TIG I have some 90 degree 1.75" bends left over from my exhaust you are welcome to. When I am back at the house (traveling now) I'll take a photo of the stock, sleeved 1.5" header versus a 1.75 single wall. It's a massive difference. I had to get the Supertrapp so I can tune the backpressure on it.

Oh shit, it's a twin, sorry the SR head won't fit....

Everything fits, just depends of the size of the hammer you use! but no your quite right the sr head wont fit otherwise id be dead keen on that! Exhaust bends sound good, can get my hands on a tig. Whered you get your super trap, might be keen on a pair of those bad boys, gona exhaust wrap the pipes but couldnt decide on mufflers, was going to try make somthing myself so i could make either turned up pipes or dumpers

Way cool, I commuted on one of these bitches when I was a troubled teenager. Borrowed it off a mate. Had my beautiful CD175 as well. Bought it off my mate Kimbles Dad. looked like and old german army bike,,,, hence my nickname,,,,
