FNG in Salt Lake City, UT building a brat!
« on: May 12, 2016, 02:41:28 PM »
Hi everybody!

My name is Donald and I'm 31. My wife recently gave me the go ahead to start a project that I've wanted to do my whole life. Fix up an old motorcycle. My budget is pretty tiny, but once she gave me the green light I hit the classifieds pretty hard! I found a '66 BS 175 Dualtwin that was needing some love. Previously, I had never heard of Bridgestone motorcycles. I immediately fell for the straight lines and simplistic styling. I was immediately reminded of a cafe racer. I knew I had to have it. I'm going over to pick it up tonight. This baby is going to be torn down and rebuilt. I want to build it up as a brat style racer while still maintaining the style of the bike and use as many original parts as possible. I am so excited to do this project and I look forward to sharing the progress and story with you all! Here is the pic of the listing that I am purchasing

Thanks Randy!

I've already used the printer at work to download and print the service manual for the 175 Dualtwin. Just don't tell my boss that I used up 82 pages of company ink for personal use  ;) ;D
