Talking (Evo II) CBR900RR "W.B.R.W."

Yup, it's that time. A new thread for the continued build documentation. Suspension and styling this time!

As it was finished after almost a year of cleanup and planning:
WBRW Evo I



The day I bought it:




FOTM entry:












As of current, I am doing the fat tire stage of the build with a SSSA and 240 rear, and 180-200 front. 18/16 diameter as a throw back to the days when race replica's were first appearing fully clothed in all the track bred glory of the mid 80's. At this juncture styling is the key ingredient to the build. My desire is not only a caricature of a motorcycle, but also a decent representation of the 80's super standards that were so far overlooked mere years after the glory days of big engines in little bikes. Think CB700SC or CB1100F.


I went through a staggering amount of parts, time, and money to only figure out I needed a VFR SSSA all along. But not to be defeated, I picked up a VFR800 unit, rather than the usual VFR750 setup that is the standard of the SSSA 'blades. Evo II could finally begin with the correct components. So here I am sipping my coffee making the thread to document the continued evolution of the Wisconsin Back Road Weapon.



After getting home from picking up the new bits, I had to see where it would all fit.











The past 24 hours rendered success in the form of a fully functioning mock fitment of the wheel and swingarm on the mighty Fireblade. Small amounts of finishing work and I'm ready for lug posts and a tire!







As Sideshowbob said describing his orange monstrosity, "The chain is a gnats ass from the frame.".

Indeed!










And in all the glory that is the 240 shod SSSA 'blade.

I do enjoy what I do, so to me, it was pretty easy. Despite the hang ups and overall snags I ran into, I always kept working for that final result that you see here. When it's finally done I feel I will take great pride in saying, "The one with the huge tires? Yeah, that's my bike".

After a ton of encouragement on facebook, and then a few text messages from CF members... I'm gonna keep the stock paint and tail section for now. I really do like how huge the bike is. I will still follow through with the zed seat and GS tail plastic over the winter months though. That look was great. With the widened CB1100F cowl on the front with a 180 or 200 section front tire as well as the 'blades stock dual rounds behind plexiglass it should look the part of the monster that I see in my head.

Thanks man, the helmet cam wheelie pic you posted in the fighters killin' streets picture thread got me thinking again about the CBR and how badly I need to get somethign done so I dedicated my whole evening last night to the bike. Before I knew it I had it all bolted up and I was getting awful drunk at that point, so I headed to bed totally forgetting I had done all that work when I got up this morning. Figured it was time to update CF and get to making the new thread.



I too have a similar affection for that camera position during wheelies.







Workin' on the 'blade last night. Taking a little more off the adjustment side of the frame.

Uhhhhh, I hogged a ton of material off the swingarm pivot lugs of the frame in an attempt to fit a Triumph Daytona 955i swinger... ended up not working out and I was in quiet a position after that, I guess, right direction on the wrong road? So I got the VFR800 measurements and found I could literally slot the thing in after what I had done. I'll take some pics of the modified stuff when I get the bike back apart. Still a long way to go on the frame though. I'm going to be using aluminum plate and industrial adhesive to brace the frame sections around the trimmed pivot lugs. Not sure it's worth the hassle when a 750 swinger fits right in there with a VFR800 adjuster.

Thanks, I really liked the overall look of the bike from the first time I layed eyes on one. The tail section and tank are just as much a signature of the 'blade's as the monstrous aluminum frame and dual round headlights.

Gonna eat the cost and have the stock 16 widened to fit a 200 section tire, rotors spaced out respective to the added width of the forks and depth of the wheel rim. Custom triples and a widened CB1100F style cowl with the dual rounds in it. Pretty much carry out all the right things to make the bike seem like it's properly proportioned from front to rear. Instead of shrinking the bodywork, make the suspension and wheels bigger.

I was the same, when I first saw one off these machines.....

......I just had to have one.

& it's great to see my orange monstrosity doing the same to someone else

what I found while doing mine was....

The width & overall physical size of the older blades gives you a lot of room to play with..
Originally I was looking at fitting shrunken everything to exaggerate the wheel widths and make it look more freaky.. But found this didn't actually work as well as I thought it would

Strangly, although I wanted my big dual lights, I did toy with small ones expecting this to make the front look even more mahoosive.. It didn't?? It actually made the front look spindly and wrong

As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground. As long as I fall, I'm safe & sound.
