    Fish's Bandit

    Well the finance is finally up and we've got another car, so this is no longer the daily ride. It's time to start chopping.

    This is what I'm starting with, there's been a few minor updates since this but they are irrelevant.





    After many hours of photoshopping by my wife here is the gist of what it will look like. Bearing in mind finding photos of the right thing at the right angle is a pain in the arse we've done near as we can with some parts. Anyway here it is.

    Currently parts collecting. Just got new rear shock and swinger to be modified. Both from a gen one busa. I've seen the busa swinger polished in a bandit in north qld and it was win. Also it's easier to get trick wheels for busa than bandit.

    Plastic and headlight off!





    Mudguard and fairing brackets off, bastard tight little job.





    Ok, I've got the guard off, where the hell am I going to put the battery?? In the battery box of course!



    Raggy bits from the hacksaw.



    What you need to clean it up, POINTY FIRE!!!!!



    Cleaner now.



    Put the box and battery back in.



    Put battery cover back in, now I have a little room to put stuff.



    Was going to grind today but couldn't find cutting wheel, only tile cutter from bathroom reno.

    Mate you'd be amazed how many people ask me if they are oil filters.

    I must admit I had to look twice I thought they were some sort of aftermarket filter to start with

    Started on the seat last night. Peeled the cover and the foam off to cut the base down.



    Test fit.



    What you need to cut the foam. Especially the bourbon.



    How It looks on the bike.



    Little fella seems to like it.



    I'm going to use original fittings to attach the seat. So take this bit off.



    Then make a nice flat bit for it to sit on on your base. I used the dremmel to do this bit.



    Make sure it fits.



    Ran out of light so will update when I finish it.

    Hey Jordy, was just thinking of Chewy the other day. Pics would be great, I miss the little bugger. Morry I can't say I have heard that saying. I figure if I slow down then it'll be a shed ornament. Si I just about shit myself the first time the grinder touched but bloody glad I did it. Like you said, No turning back now. It's going to be a steep learning curve tough seeing as this is my first proper full on fighter build.
