Hi bj96, the green thing is a plastic milk bottle top that fits the footrest hole exactly, wheels are standard 19''.

chanu, food for thought. I visit a lot of summer shows so it might be nice to post the photographs in a dedicated seperate thread.
To find me just put Durham into Google Earth.

Kind Regards to you all.

That is one beautiful looking bike! Where did you acquire the parts for the headlight conversion (yoke, etc, assuming it is a conversion)? I've been looking at doing a similar mod for a future bike.

So finally after the small modifications are finally over.I present my LB500


The number is temporary so no need hiding it.

I'm surprised that the colour has come out so well in these night pics.


Edit:Yes thats an original RE Classic 500 exhaust.And it fits perfectly.No pipe bending needed at all.Just need to make the brackets to install at the stock locations on the chassis.

That's one awesome bull you got there. I am amazed how clean you have kept her. Liked your S Demon. I never knew LB had the same brake lever as on TBTS/C5. Even the down pipe looks like the one on C5.

Is it my eyes playing tricks or there is some dents on rear fender, close to the rear number plate reflector in the third picture?

Randhawa the whole exhaust pipe including the Bend pipe is from the C5.even the bracket to tighten the exhaust onto the engine is the same.You must know that we only get complete exhausts for the 500.Not like the 350 where you can get an upswept.

Yes the LB has the same Aluminium Brake levers.

And again yes there is a dent and it was put by a wheelieing scooter of an idiot who thought that the driveway near my gate (which is 10 Ft from the road) is a practicing ground.He got a nice pounding for that as it was done when the bike was just a week old.Heck even his scooter got a pounding for it.lol.
