Wow, that's nice. I sure do like the looks of a straight seat on these bikes.

Here is my finished build. Has taken a while (and a few $) to get to where I wanted.

Have found the discussions on the forum, particularly those surrounding suspension, very useful.

In case you can't guess, I don't go off road much!
Looks good! Did you repaint the stock headers? And did you replace the wet clutch with a dry one?

I like that look too. The only issue is that you do need some sort of panel to cover the wires under that are under the seat. These are exposed when you take the old seat off. Still there are a couple of options available now.

Yes painted the stock header pipes. Not too bad a job to remove them.

I didn't replace the clutch - it is the original, but I put a clear cover over it replacing the stock grey one. I also moved the attenuator to the other side of the bike (it goes where a clutch slave cylinder would go if the bike had a hydraulic clutch).

Cool, nice job!

Absolutely beautiful build! Many fine details.

Ballpark, how much has creating this work of art set you back ($)? Or are you a distributor for aftermarket Scrambler parts?

No not a distributor, just a normal customer.

I started with some essentials (in my opinion at least) such as rear suspension and new handlebar. I also wanted a better front brake so have put on a new billet calliper with new lever and enlarged laster cylinder. Unfortunately these aren't cheap parts.

I took my time and added bits little by little. Its easy to get a little out of control doing it like that as it becomes addictive - I even have a thumb brake for the rear wheel mounted in parallel to the foot control (i.e. either foot or thumb controlled rear brake)

Of course some things are purely cosmetic - clear clutch for example but they do finish the bike off well.

I spent quite a bit on labour as i have had the tank off three or four times which doesn't help. Easier jobs I did myself.

Still - it has approximately doubled the original cost of the bike! ouch.

For the love of all things holy, can you please tell me where you got those timing belt covers (or lack there of)?
Timing belt covers are from speedy Moto. Search on line and they pop up pretty quickly. Try motowheels.com, I think that's their official website.

You need to take the pipes off to install, but not on big a job.

Just be careful with your fingers when the engine is running!

A very cool build indeed mate. My own budget build remains a work in progress but I'll take this opportunity to show off my Rizoma belt covers, which were a gift from a very generous benefactor.

However, I realise the polished alloy finish would not have worked with your black theme.:eek:ccasion14:

Nice work. I like the rizoma belt covers. Seems to match well with the tank panels.

Heck the nicest looking bit is the old Ducati Brio (scooter) tank badges, those really finish it off. I make the Ducati belt buckle/ badges that have been put on about 25 of them now. Tom Rolland

Yes seat and side panels from Mugello. they seem to be the only people doing a seat with a flat bottom that follows the frame of the bike.

Hi, could you tell me how you order products from Mugello?? I've looked everywhere and I cant find an online store. Only thing I have found is a facebook page.
Thanks
