does this classify it as being naked now?
Its even further along being pulled apart now, wheels and tires are off and separated too (painting them flat black with a red reflective stripe) I was pretty surprised at how easy it is to pull the tires with good tire mounting lube and a couple of irons (and some 2x4's to break the bead)

with no wheels, tires, gas tank, carbs, radiator or battery i dont think it'll get too far
oh and in case of a natural disaster, we're well enough stocked that you guys can come over and live off our food for a few weeks

It looks like you're running a grocery store out of your garage.

That bike looks great naked. Too bad we don't get the honda vtr250 here. It looks like this:

Carbs are all fixed and good to go again, valves adjusted, spark plugs changed, coolant flushed
Finished painting the front wheel/adding reflective wheels stripes/mouting my new tire (dunlop gt 501)


and got bored and made myself some bar end mirrors to see what they'd look like (total cost 11.50 plus tax)

Now just gotta pop off the rear wheel and dismount the tire, paint and stripe that wheel and mount/balance the new rear.
If you're mounting/removing tires yourself, one thing i've learned, use LOTS of lube, it makes life so much easier

One of my new fave ex250's
Theres a cheap one locally (not running) that I've been thinking of hacking up something along these lines, and this guy just posted up these pics of his today:
a before/after shot

a bunch more afters





On another note, I finished painting/striping my rear wheel on the weekend and put everything back together with new dunlop gt-501's, funny what a difference a set of new sporty tires will do versus a set of SUPERSUPER shitty factory tires that are 11 years old

I would get rid of the front fender, and find a way to customize the seat.

Damnnn the new color of the rims look very sexyyyy! Matches the color of the bike VERY nicely. Just a tiny tiny tiny bit off but still looks very good. Good job man, hope i have the skills to do that one day.
