Hello everyone,

 

After a lot of information (or rather research) and hesitation concerning the purchase of the right parts (sometimes in several different versions), here is finally my TC Max customized as a cafe racer.

I admit I was inspired by Maze's TC Max Benzin Launch Silver Racer to make my customization.

 

So I have : 

– replaced the handlebars with 2 bracelets

– changed the front headlight to an Full-LED headlight

– put turn signals around the fork at the front

– put the turn signals at the end of the chassis at the rear (at the level of the fixing of the rear handle)

– changed the rear light by an LED strip at the end of the chassis under the saddle

– cut out the rear fender

– removed the original rear light assembly

– added a new illuminated license plate support at the rear and readjusted the mandatory reflector (by running an electrical cable in the same place as the old beam)

– removed the rear footrests

– painted the rear frame in black

– painted the speedometer in black

– added a short bar of 22mm in diameter (length 20cm) in place of the old handlebars and fixed a clock on one side and a thermometer on the other side (ambient air temperature)

– started to replace the handlebar grips: on the left it's ok but on the right it's a pain, I broke a throttle grip (I had one in advance so it's fine but I'm waiting for a new one to keep putting it on)

– replaced the original mirrors with bar end mirrors (that alone changes the look of the bike!)

 

That's not bad.

I hesitate to put silver covering on the sides and the tank (then put a transparent protection on the tank), and to paint the brake calipers in fluorescent yellow.

Same, I hesitate to lower the front headlight a few cm but I will have to find a good support (already fixing the one with the original support was difficult and required a little force!

Well maybe a gas shock absorber (but not in red!) but the same, is the investment worth it, but that's another subject!

Then I still have to install reflectors on the sides in a little more modern (because I miss one on one side).

FYI I bought all the parts on Aliexpress.

There you go, do you like it?

Hello,

I made progress on my customization.

The original topic/discussion is on the french forum mysupersoco (topic in : TC Max / Customisation / Ma Super Soco TC Max Cafe Racer Custom).

In this topic you can have more informations and some links for buying some parts.

The majority of parts i have buying are comming from aliexpress.

If i can, i insert link of all the parts in my next message.

I changed the seat (I bought the studded saddle and I had it redone properly by a saddler to remove the nails), I took off the stickers and I lowered the headlight (by planing the support) and descended the fork.

Now, i need just painting the two brakes supports and make a seat cowl and the next step is to change the tires to racing tires like Michelin Pilot Street, Pirelli Angel City or Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2 with one size bigger (100/70-17 for the front and 130/70-17 for the rear).

Some picture of the bike now.

On this last picture you can see the fork lowering (1,5 cm).

@seriousmanfr Awesome mods to the bike, it look great. I just got a second hand one and so far I've painted the silver fairings and the headlight black. I'd like to do the speedometer next but am a bit hesitant to meddle with the wiring. Did you have to take the whole device off or does the casing come off on its own with the 3 small screws underneath?

@neto Hello. It's very simple, just unscrew the 3 screws and then it lifts on its own. To paint it will be necessary to make a small support which maintains the base by the interior, for my part, I used a rigid iron wire which I twisted, but it is possible to use a hanger.
