Thanks beechum, Ill paint the rest this week if all goes well.

Regarding those bearings. I can ask my brother in law if he can score some more but
ill make no promises.
He got me all the bearings over a rather long period of time, I bought the bike in April and
only last week I could assemble everything, not that I was in a hurry. His factory stocks
are pretty well controlled. Ill give it a shot anyway.

In the meantime, what I can give you are all the bearings numbers and all the engine seals
measures. Theyre all, except the clutch actuator arm seal, pretty standard and way cheaper
if you buy them in your local hardware store. Especially the seals.

I can post them if you want.

Im now in the process of making a supporting frame for it. Will post it as soon as done.
That looks exactly like a heater core to me, not an oil cooler! Made for coolant, not for oil. Not sure what would happen if you put oil through it. I'm no Jaguar expert, maybe they use an oil cooler that looks like that, but it sure looks like a heater part to me.

MacNoob, youre right. It is a heater core. My dad told me after he checked better the car.
Iwas cleaning it and it struck me that the honeycomb was way too dense to be from an
oil system. I ran some solvent and old oil to check the flow and it would pose no problem, I think.

Either way, I scraped the ideia to mount this one, its a bit big.
Im trying to source something like the old vfr,cb,cbr hondas had.

Hey guys, Ive got my frame and parts back!!!

Its pretty nice, I told my brother to make it all black but he made a bit of his
magic and added some gold to it and it turned out excellent! Ill post some detailed
photos tomorrow.

I got in the zone and didn't take alot of pictures.



Just greased all the linkages and assembled it. Pretty straigth forward stuff except for the
steering stem bearings, they can be a pain. The rear CRF450 fender is still in the works.

Assembly tip: put the airbox first

Don't know if you recognize the triple but when I bought it I didnt know what it was.
It turned out to be a Scotts with the fat bar mount. Not bad for a suprise... top and bottom
for 45



Also got my cylinder and 98mm Prox





And my old girl enjoying the day



She was pretty interested in my activities

For now I havent done any more assembly but I had to fix a little mishap... when I was cleaning
my case for paint, I dropped it Still could catch it it my foot but it was already late. It broke
a piece on the front engine mount

Im not to worried about it. I'll try to fix it it JB and if it holds, fine, if the vibration is too much
for it and it brakes, Ill source one.
For the time being, here's my fix...

the tools of the trade


Some cardboard rolled up and stuffed in the case. This way I'll assure a relatively round bore and when
it's time to remove it, only a tiny bit of cardboard will stick to it making it easy to remove.

The aluminium tape it's to hold the JB and give it a rough side shape while the small grid will hopefully
add some resistance to vibration. It has 3 small ones





We'll see if it holds.

Who wants to get the bets rolling?

You should have had the broken piece welded back on.

Hey Steve, youre right. I should, but around here the cost of welding aluminium is
kinda of high. For the money I can get a side case. Ill run it and see if it holds, if it doesn't...
I rather get a case.

Perhaps consider the time, labor and expense of tearing the engine down.

Do it right the first time.
