Ok, so here are the parts that have come in so far- still a few more to decide on an order. Shoein and I work as a good team when it comes to this- I figure out what it is I want, then we surfs the net and finds the best deals.



And here is the bike on the lift waiting for it's multiple surgeries:



First up is the footpegs. A sidenote here- with both of us loving to ride, there is NO filter on bikes or bikestuff. The upside is, we do tend to have some stuff leftover when done with modifications- so my new footpegs are the old ones from shoein's KTM250, here's a comparison pic for size between the xt225 and KTM peg:



A little modification was required to get the KTM pegs on the xt- I want to do most of the work on the bike myself, but I am just learning to weld and shoein has been doing it for a long time- so I am letting him do all the welding and grinding on the project it will look good when we are done:





A little paint to make them look snazzy:

And the outcome:


More to come... but oh look, it's a heat wave here today- temps in the mid teens- so I guess I will go do some outside stuff first!
