Recommended Posts

I’ve decided to dry build the bike I was initially going to strip it down have the frame polishing done the start from scratch but I’ve decided to do it the long way but that will give me a better bike in the long run.

ive booked it in with Steve Taylor to have some wheels made  so sadly after a wait to to get it back home it will be going on holiday again for a month or so in the next few weeks but then that’s all the big jobs done if I can have a rolling bike for winter il be happy this is a 2 year project

Don’t know Clive I bought these with my eyes not the stats in mind I love split rims on a spondon 

Yea I understand. Would be interested to know when you get them home.

So after what seems like forever I’ve dug the old girl out due to flu pandemic me and Steve agreed the bike could sit in a corner til this shit passed well....... it hasn’t so we’ve made plans for the bike to go to him to have the rims/hubs finished and fitted early February so I’ve had to make it a roller wich in turn rekindled some  enthusiasm so before I knew it I’d started chopping at the seat I’ve also booked it in with my resident fab man to make a new Sub-subframe and battery box to support the RGV seat. The final seat cuts haven’t been made yet I’m waiting til the seat unit is solid and square on its new mounts don’t want to fuck up the final cut on the plastics but you can get the idea also ordered a front carbon mudgaurd

Thanks mate early stages yet seat will look better after final trim but seat line follows frame rail nice got a head cooler and oil cooler to mount a new rims a 6 inches in rear so will fill swingarm nice to give it that aggressive 90s look  gona have a few months burst on it then probably put it back in a corner in spring

Will get those cases dug out for you and hopefully make trip up when we are allowed. Might need my bits back off motor too, going to start getting my slingy together
