"Rainbike"

Finished up the winter project today. 2001 750SS to be used in the rain, by friends and family, and as a backup trackbike. Before and after. (Rain tires and wheels are in the basement out of the sun.)

Righteous, friggin righteous.


May I add my two cents? I'd paint the seat black, the insides of the fairings black, and chop up that rear hugger to a smaller size.

If its truly going to be a "rain bike", I'd say keep the hugger as big as it is. It helps direct the spray towards the back as it should.

Cheers,
Ricky

nice! I ride many many days in the wet (seattle). might want to pack that front spark plug with grease. it'll catch water from the front tire.
