Anyone have any pics of a nekid strom? The more work I do on the bike the more annoying I find all the body work. I've been wondering what the wee would look like sans plastic and fairing.
I wanted the aftermarket parts availability, the seat height (I raised the rear about an inch and added the Vee seat plus the bead rider), the engine history/reliability, and the off-road capabilities (limited as it is). After reading for almost a year, the Wee seemed to fit the bill, and still does, for the most part. What I'm working on isn't for everyone, or for most people, but I just wanted a leaner Wee. I know that I'm not going to be able to remove enought plastic to have any noticable weight reduction, so it's very clear to me that what I'm working on is purely cosmetic. I'm 6'2" and won't fit on most streetfighter configurations and my 55 year old body rebels when I cramp it into too small a space. My firsts consideration when looking at any bike is seat height....Why not just get an SV? Other than have slightly more top end, it seems like that is your streetfighter Strom... except for maybe lowering the pegs, and adjusting the handlebars?
