A NEW LEAF: More Original Content On The Way

I finally picked up a big boy camera this weekend. It's just a Nikon D40, but given my complete lack of photog skills, it should keep me quite perplexed for a while.

With the acquisition of the new camera, and the SR250 project kicking off, this means I'll be hosting a lot more original content. Though, I'd like to still keep this space as a sort of tack board of inspiration. I've also moved into a new, more outfitted, garage space. On top of all that, I'm also taking fabrication classes now. It's something I've been wanting to properly learn for a while now, and I plan on doing 100% of the fabrication on the SR myself this time around.

Here are a few more "before" shots, taken this weekend, with the new camera, in the new garage alley, on the new SR250. 

Kara is quite happy with her purchase, and very eager to start the ideation process on what her bike could possibly look like. I plan on starting to thumbnail ideas this week.


  1. fotags looking good - you must be doing something right with that new shooter.

  2. VERY interested! I'm currently building up a similar bike (not as good original condition) but into more of a street tracker. Looks like the OEM muffler/boat anchor has already been cut off and a H-D shorty muffler added (good move).

  3. bookmarked!

    looking forward to it.

  4. Excited to see where you go with this one. I am building up a 80 250. Most of the frame fab is done except for some seat attachment detailing and accessory tabs. I'd send a pic but not sure it can be done on here.

  5. I have an '81 SR250 converted into a budget flat tracker with my own (obviously homemade) seat/tail but have recently been inspired by a couple of tidy, simple SR250 customs by CRD ( to put it back on the street in similar form. I'll be very interested to follow your project here. Thanks very much for posting it for the rest of us to see.
