As she's finished I thought I'd post her life in my care...
Bought in december 1989 as the work bike, to save my TZR250 from the salt n crap.
This is the earlest pic I can find but the bars and rad grill I had already put on it.
First real mod was to loose the ugly front mudguard. I used a slightly damaged one from my TZR
I fitted my old 250lc pipes that were well scuffed and had been under the grass cuttings for a year or so. The next thing was to paint it, paint on the tank although cool was pretty beat up and also the side panels and tail were cracked or broken.
But I couldn't bring my self to paint over the Eddie on the tank. So a complete set of body work from a breakers.
this is the paint job I came up with.
next was to find some better pipes I got some F2 pipes from a breakers and made them fit
they were really heavy and had been down the road and the end cans pretty dented so I filled the dents with car body filler... needless to say it didn't last long before it fell out.
Then I found a good set of 350LC pipes and gold paint. the obsession with red black and gold had started.
the lockheadfront brake was ok but was always binding, and pads were hard to get hold of.
So I bought a Harrison 4 pot made to fit my bike this was way better
and thats pretty much how she stayed apart from TZR front pegs and a new rad grill.
At this point I'd fell in love with her so much that I hated riding her in the winter. So I needed another work bike so I got a 85 F1 power valve for work.
and then outta spite she wouldn't start no spark!!!
so hatched a plan to strip it down and make major mods RGV swinger etc.
but as Casy stoner once said my ambition outway'd my talent. That was 1993
