Belgian tuner's history

Post  volcom_69 on Fri 20 Apr - 0:40

Hello,
My name is Wout, I live in Belgium and my interests are:
-Motorcycles
-Honda mini-bikes
-Aviation

This is where it all started for me. When I turned 15, I bought a Honda Dax.
I didn't have any technical experience yet, but I had one year to build it the
way I wanted it to be.

This is when I bought it:


It had a lot of different set-ups in the last 5 years, but this is how it looks now:


It still is my daily drive, because I'm taking driving lessons (obligated) for the instance.

But now I'm turning 21, and the need for a real bike became to strong.
Therefore I present you, my Yamaha XJ 650 of 1982.



It actually looked like a mess when I bought it. It hadn't run for two years.
The original paint wasn't looking good at all anymore, and the stickers where
peeling off.

I stripped it completely, repainted it (temporarely), did some minor engine
maintenance and rebuilded it just to make sure the engine would run.
And I did all of the above, by myself, in one week.

I won't tell the future plans yet, but you will see eventually.


Hope you like it!
