Some of you probably have seen my previous project (If not click here), and I've decided that my current WR will be overhauled this winter:

Nice bike huh?!? ;)

At first I thought, why not to sumo this thing with some nice 17" cast wheels I have laying around?

The rear wheel would fit (160/70/17 tyre) but somehow I don't like the look of those "tiny" wheels on my Husky...



So I've decided to skip the 17"' and now I am moving more and more towards the flat track look. I dig that look and would look great on my "big" bike!

For the people who aren't familiar with that look:

I want the 'updated' look WR, so that means a different tank and other plastics.

This look is what I want for my bike:


But ofcourse it isn't a direct fit, so that means welding and grinding :)

So I've stripped the old WR and grinded the places where I need to weld to fit a newer tank to the older frame

Old frame, with already the relocated tabs for the tank mounts.
These tabs needs to go above the beam instead of below the beam for the newer tank




Also the newer tank needs a tab on the central beam itself




Before you say: "man, your central beam tab is off center!"
I know, that should be off center otherwise the tank doesn't fit nice ;)





It almost looks like a bike again! :)
