I actually did the math, this was the most cost effective way of getting the build finished. Just to get four new rims would have cost more than I paid for this, not to mention a fresh set of tires, or the fact that this one had a near mint condish seat. Gonna reuse the rear tires and remount them to one of the original rims, and one orange (one of the rear rims on this is bent too) and use the front tires and rims as is. I will likely paint the front rims (and the rear orange) and buy tarmac tires up front as well, but granted the inspector will pass these tires for now that can wait. Once I get the kids to bed gonna go dis-assemble both back ends and drop both rear axels to a local metal shop for truing tomorrow morning, then replace the upside down front brake caliper with the left caliper of the new one that actually is upright so either they used different calipers on different years, or some numbnuts had fitted a wrong caliper to the left on this one.

Here's the best part... Once I get the original one finished and off the lift table, what remains of the parts donor which btw is a runner will be built according to the original idea as a zero fucks given reverse hoontrike with the sole purpose of turning rear tires into noise and smoke for as long til the engine goes boom.

Tongue deep enough in cheek for ya? Thought so. For anyone that doesn`t recognize the SFT logos, StuntFreaksTeam is a Finnish show/stunt riding group that don`t take themselves too seriously and just wanna have fun, as do I. If you haven`t already you should check their youtube channel out as most of it is in (bad) English. Veri nais, veri faaast

Back axels of both quads been in a local metal shop for some truing, one came out straight, the other ok as a backup. Currently as I write this awaiting for the primer to dry on the rear rim so I can flip it and do the other side then hit the sack as it`s 1am and I gotta get up at 6:30, silver overcoat and black sectors to arrive over the coming days.

Made a bracket for the speed sensor to the rear swing and drilled a hole to the rear sprocket for the magnet bolt. The two piece bracket was solely for the single reason to be able to realing the sensor after tightening the chain and had zero to do with the fact that I was being a tit trying to eyeball it in place after midnight failing miserably to get it anywhere close where it needs to be.



Coolant temp sensor adapter block fitted to the coolant hose. I was fearing not getting proper readings til the thermostat opens but that proved to be in vain as it`s getting readings from the moment the coolant starts to warm up. (man I`m in love with the Acewell gauge, seems to be of much greater quality than any Koso product I`ve used before)



My neighbour has a sticker cutter machine so he made me these warning light indicator stickers, Didn`t even accept any compensation for them (we have a great back and forth favor for favor relationship going on)









Pretty much finished. I rejetted the carb with a 110 main and it made a big difference but still needs some final tuning later, for some reason the foglights are shorting out but that shouldn`t take too long to fix, gauge needs programming once I find the manual etc little things but for the most part the quad is done. Well except of course the front rims that still need to be painted, probs gonna do that with the tires on though...

Front rims painted, front tires swapped and inspection passed with zero complaints. This thing is now officially road legal!

Lol sales ad pics already taken, ad going up after I come back from walking the dog. Doubt this thing would even have the oomph to do it. Any two wheeled pics you'll see from me will henceforth be featuring a Yamaha XJR.

Ain't this just dandy... Was arsin back and forth the home street playing with the steering angles so to make the quad even slightly not-so-damn-twitchy when at around 35km/h the left front wheel decided to suddenly lock up! Turns out the left side brake carrier had somehow worked the upper bolt loose and the disc shot the caliper off! Further investigation revealed a bent caliper carrier, broken brake pads and apparently the steering knuckle fixing point have had a jolt too as the paint broke off that too. Luckily I have all the parts in house thanks to the donor quad but really would rather do sth else than continue fixing this heap...

Both quads left the premises today with me waving them off with a wad of cash. Good riddance.
