June 2020. I normally build bikes over the winter months... but with Corvid -19 we are not going on any holidays or getting out much so my wife suggested I start my winter project early! I think she prefers me in the garage!

I bought this bike a few years ago... and over the winter 2018/19 I built it into this you see below... over the summer of 2019 I put quite a few miles on it... and actually loved the bike! it feels light and nimble, handles and brakes really well! I normally sell my bikes on, but this time I decided to keep it. A couple of things bugged me though... The tank I used was a compromise, it looks wrong to me, and although the carb conversion worked well... I felt the Monster 38mm Mikuni CV carbs held it back performance wise.

So its in for another rebuild/refresh... cosmetic only as I did the engine last time, and that is running well. I will be fitting some 41mm FCR carbs, a new tank (999) and making a new seat. And maybe change the exhaust...

this build will take some time... but I guess that depends on how corvid 19 affects daily life!

Fresh from my "eBay's most miserable bike" thread it's heartening to know it is possible to improve and bike and not fuck it up Thumbs Up

Been working on making the manifolds from scratch… it’s been quite difficult to get the shape and angles right, while maintaining approximately the same length.. there now though and I am pleased with the results. took a while to smooth the bore with the die grinder where I had penetrated with the TIG welds....

I wouldn't go that far Mr. Green

here is the subframe i have been making the last few days… I have deliberately kept it short as this will be a short single seat, which is the next job to do… I have used Rose Joints for no other reason than I just like the look of them!

Next the messy job of making a seat, well I actually made two as I couldn’t decide on shape! Its the one thing many people ask how I do it, so I have written a tutorial on it rather than post all of it here.

here is the link to my blog page

So just a few pictures…

Hmm... if CAD now equals Cardboard Aided Design this must be Polystyrene Mold from Stacked Layers or...

Today I made up some cables for the FCR’s. as they are split I have used a cable junction box, and made up the cables from scratch, including the brass nipples which I have soldered on.

here is a link to a video to see the action...

Lockdown is good for progress! I have finished the frame modifications to clear the carbs, and finished the fabrication on the rear subframe so it's off to the powder coaters tomorrow.

I have also stripped the rear shocker so I can change the colour on the spring... not sure what to yet, but definitely not yellow! had to make a clamp as these are strong springs and I have the utmost respect when working with them under this much tension, hence the beefy plate and studs!

And here is the engine...

And here's me bitching about the fact I'll have to drop the engine out of my S4 to replace the timing pulleys and give it a lick of paint. Nice work man...

Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green

One of the things I have always struggled to get done is plating... I have had some terrible jobs done in the past, and lost critical small parts to the bottom of someone's plating vat!

so about 4 years ago I bought a plating kit to do zinc... Have to say it's VERY good and I have used it time and time again! its a bit time consuming, but time is something I have, particularly at the moment...

Here are the results for my latest build. the kit can do clear and yellow passivation, you can see the difference.
