Thanks, it has been quite rewarding seeing the transformation. I will be taking far more photos of the assembly. It's nice to have something to look back on Smile

I'm officially hooked by this thread - I'm loving the attention to detail and can already see that this is going to be a cracking bike when it's finished Thumbs Up

I look forward to the next instalment!!

Cheers Smile

Picked up a few more bits today, just waiting on a couple of things to arrive this week and I'll be able to start to rebuild the engine. Should have some more photos soon.

Thanks Smile

Sorry, nothing more done at the minute. Had to spend some time trying to sort relationship troubles, now I'm single again, I should be able to get cracking again in a couple of weeks. Just in the process of getting all my stuff back into my house!

Sorry to hear of your woes fella, tough break. Still restoring motorbikes is therapeutic. Wink

So......4 months on and single life is difficult, but I'm slowly getting there. Starting to look at getting hold of the last few parts I need, hoping to start to get back onto the project soon.

Found some mirror brackets so I can get the original mirrors on, they weren't cheap but when you've spent too much already!

http://i1344.photobucket.com/albums/p655/Aprilia_AF1_Replica_Rebuild/Aprilia%20AF1%20Replica%20Rebuild/IMG_0511_zpsdda0a33c.jpg

Going to try and get the carb parts ordered this week, so hopefully there will start to be more updates again soon.

The saga continues....12 months on and a full house refit to bring it up to standard (still a work in progress but got through the major stuff) I finally got round to getting a skip and clearing my yard. A new shed on order - will need some work to make it fully secure - and I'll have a place for the bike to live, need to get it out from under the kids beds!!

A few false starts on this but life is good and it's time to re-aquaint myself with the project....it was never forgotten, just packed away until the time was right. Should be back on this within the next month Smile

impressive, I really should take more pictures and label things more carefully.

When I get stuck into the RS50 engine I am certainly going to take a leaf out of your book. Although luckily I have a Haynes manual to fall back on, just in case. Thumbs Up

I had an AF1, loved it. Great fun but as reliable as an unreliable thing in terms of electrics.

Looking forward to seeing the finished product

Great work Phil.
Keep it up own as your so close to finishing what will be an awesome 125 and a rare one too. It'll put a smile on your face to ride that's for sure. Saying that any 125 thats within spitting distance of 100mph always will.

I never knew about the Rotax weird cartridge water pump design until I saw your pics, it's very different and more compact than most bikes water pump placement that's for sure.

Cheers, I'm glad to be able to get back to it again, life gets in the way despite good intentions! Luckily I got most things when I did, as the spare parts on ebay have dried up, not surprising with how few of these are likely to still be about.

I'm looking forward to that 2 stroke power band again Stevo, should give some big 😃

This is the first time I've been inside any engine so it's an education, hopefully it'll be a good experience and it'll start up again haha

Bit by bit, slowly getting things done....

Water pump refurbished

http://i1344.photobucket.com/albums/p655/Aprilia_AF1_Replica_Rebuild/Aprilia%20AF1%20Replica%20Rebuild/16_zpsdksmwffc.jpg

Water pump installed

http://i1344.photobucket.com/albums/p655/Aprilia_AF1_Replica_Rebuild/Aprilia%20AF1%20Replica%20Rebuild/17_zpst2yjra6x.jpg

Clutch plates soaking

http://i1344.photobucket.com/albums/p655/Aprilia_AF1_Replica_Rebuild/Aprilia%20AF1%20Replica%20Rebuild/19_zpssdquybaa.jpg

Linking gear parts in - whilst fitting these and following the manual and my photos, I found that the gears for the oil pump weren't fitted as per the manual. There are marks on the gear to line up with a boss on the casing, it was 3 teeth out to the manual, don't know if it would have made much difference though.

http://i1344.photobucket.com/albums/p655/Aprilia_AF1_Replica_Rebuild/Aprilia%20AF1%20Replica%20Rebuild/18_zpsei83fd1m.jpg

Clutch in

A few bits still to do....have to check the combustion chamber volume, set the ignition timing, fit the front sprocket, and get a couple of washers that I'm missing. It's come a long way!

Hi

Looks like your power valve housing is on upside down. No major issue (you will need to remove it to hook the cable on properly anyway).

As an aside, your flywheel in the piccy looks like it has 2 holes in it. Presume one has a small V pointer. If so that is a flywheel for an earlier 127 engine with the fixed (ie, no advance / retard) ignition. Believe the number of teeth on the starter gear is different, and they get chewed up when used on a 123.

All the best

Katy
