    image.jpeg picked up this very original tiger about 3 months ago and decided to switch it up a bit ! I added apes , 1999 repop banana seat , sissy bars , redid all the cables , checkerboard housing and new tires and tubes !

    I still need new pedals and have to finally dial it in ! This is the bike that got me back into bikes !!!

    That's why I like these forums, to see the differing tastes etc: If I came across your bike with the tall bars and banana seat I would immediately start looking for the correct seat and bars. Nice bike you have.

    I like the "Stingray" look. That was a very popular mod when I was a kid. A 3 speed stic shift would look great!
