yeah rob it does look way nicer now really, how much do you think a set of aprilla front forks are. that would be sick. we should just chop the fender and tuck in the tail light it would be easy and i have a ton a nice stainless steel we can fabricate a bracket to hold the tail light right next to the seat Very Happy

Yeah that is what i was thinking. I'm still lokking for the forks, it would be cool if i could find a full r6 front end to swap over to.

I think i'm going to pull the seat and start on the tail this weekend. I was thinking i could use this tail light with the plate hanger

Then i think a fiberglass storage spot to replace the rear seat.

You up for giving me a hand?

you know i am! that tail light looks sweet, speaking of front forks a finally figured out my triple clamp disfigurement, guess what i did.....took the bolts off the lower clamp and very violently kicked the front tire back to its proper position and it worked well but i need it a little more kicking action thats what i will be doing tomarrow and because the front fender is a little lop-sided i'll just straighten it out as best i can. better steering=better handling. but yeah i'm up for helping you out.

oh yeah it made a big difference its almost like riding a new bike. i took the fender off to see if the tire was straight and now it lines up fine. and yeah i would love to go on a ride i also need to pick up some chain lube cause the chains clean now. and we can go to that aprilla shop, thing is it might be closed on sundays but I'm not sure.

the stock one. The plan is to cut the foam out of the rear seat and fiberglass a storage section and rear light mount. I also want to shave the height of the seat down a bit.

I also have some plans for the front fender and want to adjust the forks like we were talking about.

sunday or monday. I think the FedEx guy tried to deliver the seat pan today but didn't because it needs to be signed for. I won't be around tomorrow so i might have to wait till Monday to pick it up.

We can at least start the work even if we don't have it. BTW supercharger on the BMW is nearly done just ran out of intake pipe.

So we got a few little things done on Sunday.
Lowered the front of the bike 1/2", pulled the rear fender, and recut the front fender.
I had a chance today to give the front fender a coat of paint and fixed my helmet lock. I also sorted the wiring for the rear light. I hope i get the seat pan in this week so i can get that layed up before it gets to cold. i will post up som pics soon.

I got my seat pan in today. With any luck i can cut the foam for the seat after work tomorrow and get the mold ready for fiberglass. Then it will just be a matter of a warm day so the fiberglass can cure.

I was going to take pics but i left my cammera at work today.

So i got a chance to work on the bike alittle tonight.
I lowered the gauges and the headlight and now the bike is really taking shape. i also put the front fender back on.

I cut the foam and started to lay out the seat set up, i just painted it black to get an idea of how it will all look.



what do you guys think?

the front fender looks great! now. way better if i do say so my self. It looks way more sporty and cafe racerish if you will then before. It really takes the curves and colors of the bike and sets them were they should be. good job. thing is the pictures are a little fuzzy so i can't really tell whats going on with the seat. Shocked

Thanks it worked out great, I'm glad you were there to keep me from fucking it up.
There really isn't anything going on with the seat. I just pulled the vinyl off and cut the foam and painted the back part of it black.

Hey i would really use a hand tomorrow and i'm having a little party if you want to come over.
Not sure if you heard or not but i finally got my p22, i should be picking it up on Monday. A cool 9mm handgun and a cafe racer motorcycle should do wonders for my image, the kidds on the play ground will be shaking in there kedds

first of all, bottlecape33 we the administrators on sportbiketalk.useboard.net do not allow swearing! it is rude, disrespectful and possibly hateful to other viewers....no not really I'm just kidding, but yeah i really can't wait to see the walther p22 that is sweet. oh yeah just a thought it would probably be a bad idea to bring a firearm to a playground? I'm not sure though because i never tried it? but we can see what happens. I'll bring my switchblades and we can light some m-80's Razz oh.. at least set a target next to the swings or something. you know ammo is really expensive now there's this big shortage but most importantly we don't want to set any bad examples for the children Smile

Well we didn't get shit done.
On the plus side i pulled my exhaust and tank.
I'm bidding on a 4 into 1 with a Kerkur muffler on ebay and working out a trade for a seca 750 tank. These two things should really sport up the look of the bike.
