    I've chopped more bikes than I can count, and hell, I can count to 4! The challenge was thrown out there by my dad, who said: "Bet you can't do this one without hacking the frame". One of the uglies frames ever put on a bike, try to make it look good without cutting anything on the frame itself? Hmm.. Challenge accepted!
    So, I got my bike in March. She's a 1990 XV535. Fun little scoot, though it seriously lacks power. Finally, after 10 years of dreaming and having life kick me in the ass, I got my license in April. Rode the bike around stock for a full 2 trips. Raised the headlight, made some handlebars, painted, de-chromed, hid wiring etc. Most of this past summer, she looked like this:


    I had some trouble with the under-the-seat-fuel-tank and had to pull my bike apart. Ripped out the tank, not gonna put it back in. It was constantly clogging the filter. Need to find a tank to set up on the backbone. Don't want to run 2 tanks.
    Hey, I got distracted again and made new bars!


    Then I thought, with the new bars and all, that I need to ditch the stock seat. It's kinda comfy, yeah, but it looks soooooo stupid. Especially with the tank under it gone, it looks so huge. Need to slim her down. I love king and queen seats, so...



    I'll get the foam in myself, but I need to find a leather guy/gal who will do the leather work for me. I'll keep you updated.

    Long time lurker, first time poster.

    This is a 700 I had a number of years ago. Only had it a few months, but, it kind of planted a seed in my head about what I would do if I ever had another.



    Fast forward to a couple of months ago. Found an 1100 cheap and snagged it. Here's where I'm at as of last weekend.

    I think these bikes are underrated. Besides the starter BS, I like these scoots.

    Bought it in stock form, and gradually using my hand tools (except a drill) and rattle lace paint, and I am riding this now.

    Hardtailed a 535 few years ago. Single VM38-9 race carb, custom manifold, straight through pipes, made a tank from two fatboy tanks and tunnelled to suit the frame, got rid of the fake air cleaners and put the electrics in the frame where the original air cleaner was. Was running 16" apes on 4" risers then went to 10" with the same risers. Handled great and was quick off the lights.
