    Before and how it currently sits, it's all standard and original, but that's mildly boring, unsure if to put back stock or to make it a mild custom "mini me" to my XL250S build.
    Peoples thoughts?

      yeah mini me
      You have two parts of brain, 'left' and 'right'. In the left side, there's nothing right. In the right side, there's nothing left.

        So it seems I'm a fair way behind the others on this build, have had to rebuild these as priority unfortunately. I'll get to my JZ soon enough, also waiting on parts and have research to do.

          So I'm a fair way behind others it seems with this build off. Just took my bits to the blasters finally, motor, loom, exhaust, tyres, plus other parts should start arriving this week (jealous of other builders inventory haha). Still unsure of the final look, think I'll keep the original paint on the forks and tank. Looking at headlight options currently, shame most headlight options are not 6" to fit original ears, unsure if I want to run original bucket or not.

              My build is lagging behind because I have to build & repair other jobs before I can touch mine as well.

                This is as far as I've got. Frame, wheels, swing arm, rack, brake pedal,fork plate all powder coated. New tyres, new motor, sorting out brakes, leaving forks, tank, seat, bars, hubs all original "patina" (excuse the over used term). Still have to fit and sort out the wiring harness, fit up all LEDs, find a headlight I like, plus probably countless things I've missed.

                    Lifan 125, got too good a deal on it brand new. Still have all the original stuff on a shelf.

                            Not really sure what the exhaust is from Dex, I got it off cubster. I'll have to look into if the baffle can be removed etc tomorrow when I have a bit more of a fiddle. I have heard the scourer trick, never actually met someone who had done it however.
                            I'm stoked with the whites, hell im stoked with the bike altogether currently, I'll probably hate it tomorrow tho when I try sort out some wiring haha
