Finished Bridgestone 175 Hurricane Scrambler photos

This bike is a blast to ride. Fast and zippy for a small bike but next to a real motorcycle, you realize how slow you are going! The restoration took about a year. I had help rebuilding the engine and transmission. A friend Adam helped me weld the bump onto the seat. Chrome, powder coat and paint were all locally sourced. Custom YSS shocks. Assembled by me. The only bummer is that I could not find the correct street Bridgestone tires to put on the bike.

I sourced this engine build to a guy who builds Yamaha RD's and such.  Fingers crossed it works.

Painter went all out... all i needed was the rear dome painted.  I'm not complaining.  It looks amazing. The tank looks killer.  Photos of that to come
