Hey guys, bought a 2005 VLX600 3.5 years ago with roughly 2500 miles on it. First few years only mods were exhaust, velocity stack, new bars, and hardtail strut. oh and a box of parts i had hoped to install one day when i finally got to choppin. This is my first project bike but I have been modifying cars for 15+ years so I am not a total noob to this stuff. Learning a lot as I go but having a a great time. I'll post pictures as I go. If you notice any issues come up that I may be missing, please feel free to point it out.
A friend of mine welds for a living and used to teach at a welding school. Although I bought a MIG to learn on, he brought over his TIG/MIG and we got to choppin this last weekend.
Next up is to finish the battery tie down and electronics box, then mount the fender and seat, and bend up a sissy bar.
