My build "Half breed"

So I don't have a name yet, and I'm looking for suggestions. This is my build so far.

This is where I started


As soon as I got her home I stripped the bags and windshield and put them in the garage for safe keeping.


I then removed then old rotted turnsignals, deleted the goat and added straight pipes, then ear shaved and wrapped the pipes in header wrap and removed the crash bar, extended backrest and luggage rack



Tonight I removed the stock seat and went to a mean streak seat. She is slowly coming along. Ive got some more mods planned such as wolfies forwards, 10" apes, hand forged sissy bar, deleting the stock tail light for a swingarm mounted light and plate and then paint




If you can think of a fitting name let me know. The idea is stripping it of anything that doesnt make it go faster or ride better.

Did you rejet the carbs when you did the earshave and straight pipes? Also love the way the seat looks on this bike.

That's what I say too. I was thinking the name might not come until you get the new paint on her.

Luvin' the way the bike looks with the meanie seat on it.

When I was younger I was afraid I'd die riding. Now that I'm old and falling apart, I'm afraid I won't.

Yeah Im still playing with the jetting. So far the best combo Ive found was 42/150 no shims. Ive done 42/142 with different shim combos, but the 150's feel better and the plugs look good. Tha ks for the compliments guys

I took some better pictures today. This on the jobsite at lunch time with a buddys Yamaha Virago.


This was just about 5 min ago when I pulled in from qork. Excuse the jacket in the first two, I wore it in this morning.
