Next project planned.

Nearly ten years ago I built my first custom bike using the NX650 Dominator as a base .
Since then many stock original bikes have been sacrificed in the process.
I think I have used around 12 or maybe more for this pursuit of a great riding and looking machine.
I'm not a 100%  sure on this but I think I was the first to use the dominator for these projects, a great many have also been used/slaughtered in the process by many many people seemingly all over the world.
So it is my intention to get hold of an original 1988 NX650 and completely restore it back to good as new and completely stock as it left the factory condition.
I'm very much looking forward to this next project as for me personally it will make a great change from stripping and cutting up yet another one of these fantastic bikes.

Hopefully it will look like this...….

  2. Many thanks for the very kind comments, nowadays I tend to work on the bikes in the winter time as work is quieter.
    Each build takes roughly between 300 and 400 hrs, I do have two projects at the moment, another custom dominator and a restoration.
    Thanks again for your comments.
