Hey guys I'm new here
I bought a ex500 gen 2 I believe and fixed little ods and ends and painted it mate black the bike is not on the road yet but iv taken it out a few times lol I couldn't resist i have lights signals and mirrors ordered. First picture is how she is now second picture is how I want the tail to look after I do sed cutting and welding would I have to reinforce the rear seat more than just welding the crossmember back in place to desired location?

This Is the reverse process I actually did with my bike. I struggled for a year to find the rear part of that specific frame, and now I'm looking for someone to wield it back. Café Racers are beautiful bikes of course, but one thing is removing the plastics, the other is cutting here and there. My recommendation is: try to transform the bike without cutting, or at least, keep that part for the future, just in case.

I was going to keep it just incase but I'll more than likely hand the bike down to my kids when there old enough to learn how to ride or keep it as a toy for myself I will be the last owner of it also im keeping the rear brake light mounting bracket and going to be useing it to remount the light I'm just takeing off a couple inches of the frame to give it said look but putting my own little twist to it
