Picked up this Suzuki fairly cheap as my first bike. It had some title issues that i was able to track down the original owner and get straightened out so i've just been goin around the neighborhood until its legit. taking the beginners riders course next weekend. so until then I've been messing with it a bit. painting and sanding down some bits mostly. . .

day i brought it home

the tank was pushed in pretty good on top, looked like some some one sat on it. I was able to get the majority of the dents out so i cut out this vinyl decal to "cover" the rest

Did you make those signals or buy them?

Made them. I bought these https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/led-wired-bolts/bolt-beam-12mm-led-light/1494/
And used the original bracket. Had to drill out the holes a little with a step bit. They work with the original turn signal relay too.
