So here we go again, new winter new project. This time i build a long distance travel bike. The base is a Tenere 660z year 2009 which is already a good bike in my opinion.
The thing to the left is what i get started with. It made 56 000km and some of it in South Africa some off-road and some on the beach through saltwater what makes it all a bit less pretty.
I decide to strip it down all the way, sandblast all the bits and pieces and powder-coat it all.
Replace all the parts that don´t make sense to me like the wobbly front fork the massive heavy and ugly exhaust the 17" rear wheel and so on.
I strip the motor and rebuild it with some help from a bit of a local celebrity.
I remove the rear food peg holders, the standard bash plate and much more.
You find the technical details and some photos below.
It is not complete yet as i am still working on the bike but I will show you guys the result once it is done!
