The fun has just begun to mate the Yamaha Radian to a Honda 919 and Suzuki GS500  !!!

I don't know where I got the idea. it just sort of happened while surfing ebay. Why not renew the looks of my Radian with something a bit more modern? So I picked up a Honda 919 severely damaged tank from a wreck, a Suzuki GS500 tail section and seat from a do it yourself refinishing project gone bad ,mixed in with some old parts lying around the shop. What you see in the following pictures is the process . I first removed all the body work then proceeded to cut off the rear portion of the frame supporting the seat and rear shocks.
