  1. What do you all think?

    Dominator / FMX
    I bought a new (to me) tank and rear end off eBay the other day and have chopped bits of the rear frame and original tank mounts to get them to fit so there's no going back. So what do you think? I have no intention of ever making this bike a pretty show winning bike and the seat will be...
  2. Heated seat.

    I've recently fitted a heated seat pad that santa dropped off for Xmas. I must say, I'm impressed, it was a touch under £40 delivered from the 'bay, so about the same price as mid range heated grips. It comes with the self adhesive heated pad, a load of wiring (most of which was chopped out &...
  3. New AT owner

    Hi chaps and chapesses Although I'm not new to the forum I haven't been on here in a while. Yesterday I chopped in my 2005 1150 gsa for a 2002 AT. Just fancied a change and always wanted an AT.

    Hi all I've been riding bikes over 40 years and have had a very strange assortment in that time including CZs, MZs, Royal Enfield, BMWs, a few British bikes and 3 or 4 Japanese thumpers. I've just bought a 1999 SLR650 to replace my Yamaha SR400 as it is kickstart only and hurts my knee too much...
  6. Just bought an XL250S project parts wanted

    Picked up a great project nice and cheap, however cheap also means it needs lots of expensive things, such as an exhaust and a frame (with a logbook) what exhaust options are there for a 250s?, it had a micron on there till the previous owner chopped it off and put it on something else Cheers
  7. Another bodged screen spoiler

    Bodgers Corner
