So now we have welded the whole rear frame cleanly

148677




and welded in a middle support for the MOKO rear.


148678



148679
148680




So far so good. The next one will be relocating the footpegs with new brackets.

As I said, this time it continues with the inclusion of the footrest system. These should move 2 cm higher. First, measure the original completely and make a sketch from it.

First cut off both brackets

148707


Then enlarge the frame positions for inserting the brackets.

148708



Adjust and review


148709
148710



The whole thing is first fixed with screws. First I have to see if the new swing arm has enough space.

148711
148712



and here again the comparison before and after

148713



so now the engine (the old one) and the new swing arm have to be reinstalled to adjust the chain alignment

Thank God there is enough space!
148714
148715




The 5.5 inch rim will have to give way to a 6 inch rim.

148716



But the chain escape looks very nice!

Years ago I discovered this young man with his remodeling on the web.


148718
148719



In my opinion, this is the perfect swingarm for the Bandit. Perhaps the builder is even represented here in the forum.

For me, it wasn't about widening the frame or installing this beautiful swingarm when he converted it. What I liked from the start was the modification of the frame on the footrests.

148721
148722


Absolutely remarkable. I wanted that too !!
That gives the frame a much nicer shape and it all looks like a round tube.

And since I've just installed the swing arm and the motor, the frame is well fixed in place.

First of all, I milled the basic shape of the frame at this point twice. It should then be very stable again. Weight does not matter here!

So let's go !!!!!

First off with the old paint!

148733



Then open the first side of the frame.


As you can see inside the bracket for the engine and shock absorber can be seen there.

148734



This bracket should stay as it is.

Now roughly cut open the back side !!

148735
148736


The 2 lines (one at the top left and one at the bottom right) indicate the slight kink in the frame. This made it impossible for me to use the milled frame in one piece.

So I divided the milled frames into 4 pieces each.

148737
148738


And now the whole thing is being welded by my professional welder at work.

So motor and swing arm out again and off to weld on the straightening bench.

As I said, everything is welded. Footrests and milled insert.

148739
148740


And now comes the biggest shit job !!

GRINDING !!!!!!

148741


148742


148743



So back in the garage and again install the engine and swing arm.

148744


148745



I imagined it exactly like that. Beautiful. Damn awesome !!!!!!

Incidentally, the storage of the GSXR 1000 K1 swing arm was rebuilt so that the mounting of the Bandit swing arm axis fits.

148763
148764
148766


The swingarm had to be narrowed approx. 3mm on each side so that it fits into the frame.

Somehow the original storage sucks. I don't like it, it has too much play. There has to be another solution!

Will start to change the rear of MOKO a little so that it fits the new rear frame.

148770



I had already changed the rear 6 years ago to swap the big ugly taillight for an LED taillight.


148772



This is what it looks like at the moment. I do not like it.

148776


The MOKO rear must run flush with the frame strut. About as.


148775




First fill it up with construction foam and then carve it into shape.

148780


Before doing this, try to see if I can make a corner out of fiberglass. And yes I can.


148781
148782
148783



The old taillight torn out. Was broken anyway.

148784




What crap I put together back then. With aluminum grille. Oh my God. You can do that without. You never stop learning and you always learn something new when laminating.

So it looks a bit better from the form.

148786


The recess for the rear light is completely closed. The new indicators from Kellermann have everything you need. Tail light, brake light and turn signals.

148787
148788



Finally I scrape out the foam again.

148789



The rough shape would be ready.

148790



Fits quite well. Now the fine work begins !!!!!

148791



Small by-product. Drinking cup to toast the new year 2021 !!!!

148792



And with that I wish everyone a happy new year 2021. See you next year. Please drink slowly !!!!!!!!!
