Funky ninja winter project

This fall I picked up a CL special for $350 - a running 2005 with no faring and a dented tank also missing instrument cluster and other stuff PO had started to convert into a naked street fighter. He said it had 13k on the clock- I choose to believe him He drilled into the top triple tree to mount a fat bar - which I like and plan to keep. Holes are a little off plus the fork tubes were a little twisted but not bent. Forgive me for not taking a before picture I stripped everything off the bike the first day I got it home. My plan is to modify this little bike into something fun and original - not to worried about performance- not gonna race it. I just want it to run decent. I will be doing everything myself and have been using this site for tech advice and inspiration. Here it is as it sits in my messy garage in zero deg weather - notice the frost on the engine case. Sorry canít seem to load pictures- restricted?

Sorry for the poor quality it's a picture of a picture - only way I could get it to load. Anyway I am using a tank off a old honda quad. Here is my initial concept for the build.

So far I did a valve adjustment, new plugs, and changed fork oil to 15w (added a bit more than stock to stiffen it up). Since the fork tube will be exposed on top I used these small discs found inside of hard drives to dress them up. Some sort of shiny metal - I don't think they will rust.

Good luck . I love seeing people revive the beaten abused forgotten bikes of the past. Most my toys have been the rejects lol. Preps on the creativity

I was able to get out some big dents from mine by making a pry bar that fit in the filler hole. I had to cut it and re-weld it a few times to get it to reach all the dents, but I got the sheet metal close enough that the Bondo never had to be more then 1/8" thick.

Unhappy

I was seriously thinking of using the original tank which would have simplified things greatly but I pulled the trigger and got a 1980s fourtrax 300 tank off eBay thinking it would matchup pretty good. Itís a little larger than I anticipated and the mounts will be tricky. Again want to do something unique. Not a lot of dents but there is rust and pinholes. Also the fuel petcock is gravity fed so I need to plug the vac port on the carbs. Still frozen so not much progress. I am setting a goal to have it complete by late summer. Next on the list is paint triple trees and get the forks mounted then I will know where to mount the tank so it has enough clearance then will come the seat.

Chopped the rear frame and the seat, unfortunately I canít weld but I will be using steel bar stock to make brackets to brace the frame under the seat. Also the side panels and rear fender will be aluminum and bolted to the frame which may add some strength - minimal I know. Got these mini led turn indicators and mounted to existing tabs.
