Hope you like the bike as much as me.
Brought the bike back in 1997, after the third week I hacked The back end off. And that’s as far as it
stayed for at least Five and a half years. Then I got a hold of a garage so I got back in to it.
Some six months later and a lot of time & money spent she is now getting close to Completion.
The bike weighed in at a hefty 228kg Factory, after a lot of surgery she is now down to a
reasonable 165kg aprox and still falling. but the cost keeps climing. worth every Penney though .
The rear end seat unit is to be replaced with a motor cross style, exhaust along Side seat unit.
Wavy disk’s To follow. Forks will be extended around 4 to 6 inches longer. Ally Petrol tank,
Carbon wheels, Titanium bolts. Are some of the things left on the list to do.
Carbs’s have been replaced with some Mik,s.36mm from 40mm. To help get the air speed back up,
Due to lose of ram-air.Bell-mouth instead of filters Exhaust is a straight through micron race
with a shortened tailpipe to get the Back pressure up again. but not too much. very loud, A quick action
throttle grip off a crosser makes it responds and sound just like a F1 racing car ( Believe me).
Battery will be on front of bike where head light lived. (No lights) Small horn, and
a light weight switch for starter button, a minimum number of wires to make The bike run,
And charge battery only, Even black box." IC " Has had plastic Case removed to save weight.
A watch size Speedo on bar's, No other clock's gauge's ect on bike. Jubilee clips are replaced with nylon ties
on none stressed areas only, rear master cylinder is only a 1/2 an inch by 2 length rubber hose with a plug
in the top. Around 1/2 oz. in weight. the list goes on , But you can keep finding things if you look hard
and long enough, "And take a lot of risks " Will have small rad under seat, no oil cooler.
