Let's start!!!!

As my friend was moving to New Zeland he gave me his 1997 XTZ660 Tenere as a gift :)

So... I deceided to put some life into her. I was considered to restore and bring her back to original condition. I painted the front fairing, petrol tank, front fender, side panels to yellow Fiat color.

I cleaned the bike, fixed her (she is alive!) and... IT IS STILL XTZ660 Tenere... Probably real ADV riders could be delighted but I was not...

I changed my mind... YES! I want to transform her to some kind of heavy supermoto bike :)
Therefore, the idea is to create a unique bike but nothing very special.

What do I have:
Untidy 1997 Yamaha XTZ660 Tenere. Some parts needs to be rebuilt some cleaned etc..

- clean up and paint the frame
- do major engine service
- supermoto, alloy wheels
- XT600 petrol tank
- better brakes - front and rear
- different front look: bandit headlights
- different indicators
- Koso XR-SR digital gauges or similar
- Suzuki GSXR1000 exhaust can
etc etc etc etc etc.....

Generally its gonna be Yamaha XTZ660 Tenere mixed with Yamaha XT600E, Yamaha XT660X Supermoto, Suzuki GS500, GSXR1000 and... has begun!!!
