I thought I'd share my custom tail chop

rather than going for the 120+S/H competition works kit and the waiting (overseas here)

i had it done locally for 50bux.. was done the next day

I was going to go the usual Rizoma LED route.. but the stock bulbs aren't that offensive tucked under the seat.. and I figure rear signal visibility is more important.. (I went rizoma's in the front)

here's a before/during/after:


before the tail chop: (half the fender is already removed it extends even further originally)



"beer tray"


here's what the frame looks like underneath:


ZZZZzzzzZZZZzzz (taking a hacksaw to the gorgeous red frame was not easy)

Hi Ottoman,

Could you please post a picture from the right side? I also plan to cut the tail but I'm afraid my termis will look lame with their original lenght. Thanks!

Yeah I know what you mean bro, I was worried about the same thing before I did it..

but it doesn't look too bad...it's not really that noticable

lol I had a close encounter as well

the plate was Too perpendicular to the ground

i went thru a bike pot hole and didn't stand up off the seat

the plate hit the tire and bent it, it fell off about 500 mtrs up the road

I know have it bent so it's more facing the sky...
