At first you need a bike, of course 😉 Should have a good engine with low milage if possible. Not bad if it has parts which you can use. Here: the 17” rear wheel. Started to strip down the bike and tested the new fork from a Suzuki GSF1250.
Stripping down the bike and testing the first rear shock. Too short …
Trying out a Suzuki GN250 fuel tank. Nope, that doesn’t really work…
Ordered a custom made Wilbers rear shock. Nice part. 2 cm shorter than original. At the same time the new front wheel arrived. Like the rear wheel it’s with a Behr rim. Assembled with a KTM950 LC8 hub (has mountings for two brake discs). Finally mounting Pirelli MT60 RS tyres.
Building the exhaust. Classic after market cafe racer can and a hand made header. Covering with heat wrap.
Trying out a Honda CG125 fuel tank. Perfect! Building tank mounts.
Mounting headlights, indicators and speedometer. Indicators are not the final ones. Choosed a Koso D64 DL-03S multifunction meter.
Changing the position of the oil cooler – with a new holder and pipes from a Suzuki XF650.
Shorting rear frame and mounting rear fender.
Preparing seat. Using the front part of stock seat base. Cover will be made by an expert later.
