Hey I'm back

Just got to dust everything off. 'cough'
Guess what happens when you make plans to finish a bike rebuild. Life and other stuff!

Anyway I should be adding to this thread a lot more regularly from now on.

I have a bike lift that doesn't quite suit my needs


So I got an idea and built another lifting platform


So now the bike is loaded, jacked up higher and there is clearance below the bike



I also made a front end jig


To do the necessary modifications to a YZ front end I picked up off of Gumtree. I had to sell my original front end to get some funds. Hopefully this set will stay mine. But who knows? Things happen. I might get an offer I cannot refuse


The mod parts have started
Calliper mount


ABS Sensor Mount,Hooter bracket and Front Fender support are on the way.
Axle shaft and spacers also "in work"

Watch this space

Still aways to go yet.

Some other bits I've been busy with

Some of the things I've been busy with.....



Exhaust heat guards anodised black



Did a mate a favour and made footpeg bracket for the bmw café racer he is building, and he helped me out. One hand washes the other.
All my silver body bits are now gun metal.









Footpeg relocation brackets. made from 4mm Stainless Steel. Still working on the U channels that hold the footpegs


Old and new




Originals on top of the new mounts. You can see the 60mm difference










I fitted my new brake calliper hanger that I made
Like a thumb in a bum!!




Ain't it Purdy in blue!




More to follow

Why do you have to live in Australia?! I would love to collaborate and help you out so you could help me out with parts. I want to do this front end swap and black out my frame as well. Last owner wasn't very kind when he tried to farkle it, emphasis on "tried to." There is grease everywhere and scratches on on everything.

We could try a long distance relationship

If you want to know anything, just ask. Be aware, I'm just winging it as I go.

Putting the motor in was actually easier than I thought. Just a little awkward at time doing it on my own

I am just taking the motor out of mine. The BMW manual has a few pointers in it but not much. Any advice or pictures or the process? I am guessing one big tip is, DON'T DROP IT! but I am looking for a little more than that.

Do you still have the wheels on, or have you stripped it down like I have?
