Just got some bad news on the Marchesini Wheels.

Evidently the entire country of Italy stops working for the month of August, so the custom gold supermoto wheels won't be available until around mid-September.

:doh:

Not sure what exactly is up, but it's not good news.

Got a message from my parts buyer who said the special order Marchesini wheels require a 50% deposit, which they didn't send. So, the wheels were never ordered. Evidently, the check has been sent out, but not sure when the wheels will arrive.

:doh:

I really don't want this motard to take as long as the streetfighter project, so I'm trying to step up the pace. :cool-smiley-030:

Instead of trying to make as many custom parts as possible, I'm going to use a lot of OEM parts, just to get the bike built and running. After that, I can swap out some custom pieces to upgrade. There will still be plenty of one-off parts made for the engine conversion, custom fuel tank, radiator, bodywork, pipes, etc.

Ordered a bunch of parts today ($400 worth):

Steering I
#4 Washer 26.5 x 36 x 1 AP9100028 (1)
#10 Lower U-bolt AP9100293 (2)
#11 Silent-block AP9100412 (4)
#15 Fairlead plate AP9100968 (1)
#16 Front brake hose cable guide AP8102208 (1)

Swing Arm
#6 Rear swing arm pin M14 L=256 AP9100264 (1)
#8 Sliding block AP9100061 (1)
#9 Chain guide AP9100060 (1)
#10 Chain guide plate AP9100109 (1)
#12 Bush AP9100616 (1)
#19 Cup for shoe AP8234020 (3)
#22 Bush AP9100287 (2)
#25 Washer AP8152323 (1)

Controls
#2 Upper u-bolt AP9100297 (1)

Completing Part
#1 Main switch - steering lock AP9100515 (1)

Front Wheel II
#16 Outer spacer L=26, 3 AP9100229 (1)
#5 Plug M22 AP9100171 (1)

Got the seat and top triple clamp.

Looks like the front of the seat will need to be chopped. I'll need to redesign the shape of the fuel tank, as well.

I'll post pics soon.
