My name is Anthony Smith and I am a senior at University of Tennessee, my major is Graphic Design. This year I am going to be embarking on uncharted territory. I will be building a custom supermotard bike out of a old 1983 Husqvarna CR500 motorcycle, and my goal is to finish by the end of the semester along with making it street legal. If you don’t know what a supermotard bike is here is a video. Also here is a link to the urban dictionary and numbers 38 and 42 give the term to “motard”. During the thesis I am going to be documenting my process through this blog, a flickr account, and my facebook account. To find me on facebook type in “Anthony Smith” and do a refined search: “Knoxville” and “Tennessee”. This should bring me up, my head is buzzed and my picture is on a student id card. At the end of the semester I will put together a news paper/posters that will combine all of this together.
