    Default Aussie 07 Night Train

    Started striping my train to fit new tins, springer front, different bars and wheels, and a lot of other cool stuff along the way

    So far I've only stripped the tins and trial fitted the new tank. The front end and rear have yet to be changed

    the night trains always look nice with their all black engine. Not my total taste but looks tough and will be a ripper when it's back together.

    Not a long of progress has been made. I work away a lot and some times when I'm home a got a lot on. Got the swing arm on and started lining up the mounts for the caliper and alining the chain drive

    I'm liking the lines of the bike so far

    It's a solid billet 15x7 with a 230. Same dimensions and tyre.
    Funny you posted this bike. It's built by the guys at Badlands. Funny because it's exactly the bike that set me on the path to what I'm building now. Originally I was going to do same front and rear wheels, keep my original tank and go same bars and all. But I got distracted with another build by a guy here in Australia at Farstcycles. This bike below

    This bike is more drag style and much different to how the badland's look. I still like the badland's over this, but I can see myself in one if I have the money.

    Here is the bike I like that has this style.

    Yeah I'm a massive fan of that drag look. But I won't be going drag bars, I'm sticking with the mini apes. But the drag bike theme is definitely going to play a part in the style.

    Still waiting on a couple things to be able to get back into working on setting up the rear end, so I got to work on the bars.

    I had Exiles internal throttle and Grip Ace switches to install. The bars tubbing is thicker then normal so once I shortened the throttle side bar, I realised the internal throttle wouldn't slide in, so I then machine 2" inches of the inner surface to a perfect fit with the internal throttle. Drilled a hole for a grub screw that goes into the internal throttle housing and will use adhesive as a precautionary, but as it sits, it's a strong fit with no play.

    The grip ace buttons proved a pain in the arse to cut into the grips, lucky I bought a second set as I fucked the first one up good and proper. Drilled a hole for the one wire to go in and she's all almost done. I've just got till the top end is back I can work out the length for the throttle cable to cut it to and run it through the bars. All in all it'll be a clean setup.

    I wanted a minimal look up front, no gauges, no obvious switches or controls or lights. Unfortunately due to the narrow overall width of the bars, running the brake line internal is pointless, it would only enter on the vertical tubbing of the bars, and the short height of the bars would mean it'd be a waste of time in my opinion. I can make the brake cable near and relatively hidden with the springer so there won't be cables flailing in the wind
