    Default 100th Anniversary Sporty "Build"

    Not so much a build thread but rather a timeline of changes I've made and will make to the bike. Sold an 05 Yamaha R6 and picked this thing up a few months ago.

    From the CL ad


    Had to be a cool a guy and take off the fender


    Then I got some new bars from Zombie Performance and some ridged struts.




    Also got a new headlight so I could get rid of the unibrow.


    This is the most recent project. The tank needs a bit of touching up but im pretty happy with it. The rear fender got chopped tonight so hopefully I can get some paint on it soon too.




    Thats all for no but seeing as how I cant leave things alone there will be more to come.

    Good start! Ditch that seat and get a new intake!

    Thanks man. The intake is actually the next thing on the list, I really hate that ham can. I'm still on yhe fence with the seat. I'm not crazy about it but I'm not sure what to replace it with. I really dig the biltwell banana seat but I want to keep the 2up option. I plan on hardtailngb it this winter at which point I want to do a true ridged seat. I'm trying to to make changes now that I will have to change again when I cut it in half.

    Im going to see if one of the local shops can weld some bungs in for me so I can get the tank mounted. In the mean time Im going to get the rear fender painted. More than likely going to keep it simple and do solid black.

    haha the second I saw the bars I had to have them. Sooo much better than those apes!

    I got bored tonight and wanted to see what the new tank looked like. I am beyond stoked on it. I just need to get some bungs welded in so I can get this bad boy on permanently. The tiny tank makes the seat look even more miserable so Im going to need to get that sorted out next.

    Finally got my tank mounted. The welder I was using at first was a garbage 90 amp that just wouldnt cut it but my friend ended up letting me use this giant old mig they use for fixing tractors and what not. Its crazy how much easier it is to weld this stuff when you have the right equipment.



    also got rid of the forwards and put on some 10.5in shocks. Its a lot more fun than with the ridged struts.

    Pretty sweet Nate. I got a black 100th ann with 288 miles for $2700 a month ago. Doing a lot of small stuff here and there. Once I get my new tank from Eric at Jake's Customs, I'll post pics over in the Sporty Thread.

    Oh nice! I saw it parked by me the other day.

    the lady looks awfully badass on it tho haha

    Looks nice man. I dig the paint on the tank.

    I have a solo seat set up for the same bike if you are interested. It is the one in my avatar, but doesn't have to be used with that seat in particular. Made by V-twin.

    Also have a used dunlop tire that will fit your rear. Looks like you need a new one!

    The bike is a real fun ride. What was involved with going from forwards to mids?

    Thanks for the parts offers but Im gonna pass. Ive actually got a seat in mind if my home brew one doesnt pan out. Im not real confident in my sewing ability so we will see what happens. My rear tire is reaaaal sketchy haha. New tire is on order tho.

    Forwards to mids is a breeze. I basically just lurked ebay and bought the individual parts. Saved a bit of coin over buying the full set up from one person. You will need the brackets the pegs mount too, a shifter and and brake pedal with the rod that threads into the MC. Also, there is some wonky bracket/spacer used in the oem set up to line the MC up with the pedal. I didnt want to pay shipping for that pies so I just made my own spacers and everything works sweet. Like I said, real simple and one of the best things Ive done to the bike so far.

    No problem man. I have a gold wing which has mid controls and the riding position is super comfortable. Not to mention it handles like a dream, especially for a garbage wagon. I am 6' tall too. But, the seat is high and so is the bike which makes more room for me. I am still debating putting them on my rigid sporty. I guess I will wait until it is done and ride it to see how it feels. Thanks for the input.
