My Fazer cafe racer (possible scrambler)
« on: 16 October 2017, 09:29:58 PM »
Just got my bike back from having the rear end rebuilt.  I'm yet to paint it, will get that sorted this weekend.

Tempted to put some Continental TCK80's and go the s
crambler look. Only pic I have at the moment, will take more hopefully tomorrow.

Currently looks like a cross-dressing Faze(r)... prior to going ALL OUT !  :lol

Chunky nobbly tyres would definitely complement the Scrambler look. The Continental TCK80's would be sweet.
What else do you have planned?

Nice work! Can picture a Bobber style bike here, if that seat was half the length (...giving me some "fresh" ideas).  ;)

Thanks for the comments.

Next plans are to wrap the exhausts, cut down the front mud guard (or remove completely) and maybe change the tyres.

I was originally going to install a smaller seat however it's the only mode of transport for me and the missus so need enough room for her. The pillion pegs were actually cut and shifted for the build.

I also changed the speedo drive to mechanical and put a smaller speedo and tacho on.  Can't get the tacho to work properly thou.  It's not the fault codes, it just seems to have a mind of its own.

Some progress pics...

Welding for the seat looks really neat + great fit. Also relocation of the pillion pegs.
Where are you (roughly) in the UK - I might consider the welder for some work on mine.

Is that a rear light integrated INTO the tubing at the back?  8) SMART.
Your new 'bench seat' looks far more comfortable, plus practical for 2 also.

The "scrambler" styled tyres would work really well this time of year, once the wet weather rolls in, during the winter months.
The other Mods appear more cosmetic (removing front mudguard / exhaust wrap etc)?

I wont link to anything specific, however searching Google images, there's a handful of " Fazer Scramblers " that might offer some inspiration.

There is a brilliant guide to install the mechanical speedo. The Thundercat speedo drive is a direct fit.

I bought the Thundercat speedo drive for £5 and sold my original electric speedo drive for £40 on eBay.

Yes the taillight is built into the rear frame and it was a custom job, not bought pre-made on eBay.

The welder is based in West Drayton, near Heathrow. He is the best, he built the rear frame on my prior XJ600 which unfortionately was stolen.






Don't let the strange name put you off, he is good and very reasonably priced.
