Brat - Stage 3 - CeeBee-6-Fiddy

Making sidecovers. They will be black.

Brat - Stage 2 - CeeBee-6-Fiddy

Tail end has been attacked.

The rear guard fought me the whole way. I drilled a hole in it and the chrome flaked off. I ended using the CL450 rear guard I had lying around. It was trimmed down to remove a rust patch. 

I have other things to now change on the Brat CeeBee-6-Fiddy. 

Brat - Stage 1 - CeeBee-6-Fiddy

First steps of Brat are done.

Big shout out to Liam Butler of Butler's Customs and Race Racers for making the seat. He is a true garage artist. A true gentleman. He builds sweet rides.

I did not want major chopping done to the frame. So the rear frame loop/hump stayed.

Most cut this off. 
The seat mounting brackets have been removed. A new seat base crafted. 

That huge tail light is coming off. It looks like the docking bay of the USS Enterprise from Star Trek. 

Brat - CeeBee-6-Fiddy

Brat Style. "Brat styles usually have only minor frame modifications. (shorten)  a thinner flatter seat installed, most have adopted the black rims,  and I have seen all kinds of crazy handle bar options." A shop in Japan that gave the world this name and style. Its got a cult following. I love it.

I took the CeeBee to Liam Butler of @butlerscustomsandcaferacers  Look him up on Instagram.

This is Liam's own GN250. He let me take it for a blat. What a hoot. 

He does great work. He is a true Garage Artist.

Liam starting the Brat process.
The CeeBee is staying with Liam for a week while he hand crafts a Brat Style seat for me.  Then that horrible tail light that looks like the docking bay of the Enterprise from Star Trek will come off. I have a nice period Lucas type tail light to mount. 

Comrade 3 wheeler....

Today Jan and I had the pleasure of riding a Ural Outfit. We did around 320kms in it.

Little things ... CeeBee-6-Fiddy

Little things can make a big difference.
Small black blinkers.
Black Handle bars.
Bar end mirror (This is till I pay for and pick up some round ones.)
The bike came with a spare seat. Looks like the original seat. The foam has had some shaving done to it. I prefer the look of this seat than the one that my bum came home on yesterday.
