Feeling a bit like a home makeover show...

Frog brought this over today. I'm going to get it ready for Baja in a few short weeks.





Bent subframe in the pic below...fixed that tonight. I'll upload pics as progress gets made...

Its part of my training so when something gets bent like subframe I'll feel at home. Kinda like when my teammate in 08 handed me a bike that was always turning left. :p

I did that for you, because I knew how much you loved NASCAR.

Me: Here's the bike, but we have the straiten the front wheel first.

Frog: What, Why?

Me: I had a little crash.

Frog: You what. . (like it was unheard of to have a little get off).

Frog: Ahh, f#*k it, It'll be fine.

Frog: BRaaaaaa, Braaaaaa, Braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

Exactly. My training program paid off.

I don't think I'd ever heard of you having a get off. That's why I was surprised. You must of gotten caught up in the race which is easy to do when its your first race ever. :eek:

you can use a bottle jack and some pieces of 2x4 to straighten this out as it sits

It gets worse before it gets better

Bike is totally apart and Frog and I have a list that keeps getting longer. At some level this feels more like a vintage race bike restoration than a baja build, but we will get there and it will for sure be solid. Right now it might not feel that way.



We had to hunt down a new swingarm since the existing one is ready for recycling. I inspected the frame though and it is surprisingly solid.

Side note: I beat, squeezed, heated, cursed and even tried pouting for an hour or so trying to get the bearings out of the swingarm. Is there a trick on the RFS KTMs? I've never had them fight me so much.

New wheel bearings on two rear wheels. Fronts are next. They needed it...



New brake line on the front...bled and super tight. Nothing more confidence inspiring than a firm front brake I tell ya.



A little over two weeks for me to get this done before I need to do some traveling for work. Off to ADV'r Harcus' this weekend to get a few welds layed.
