I've continued with my old buildoff build, so I guess it's time to update. The old thread: http://www.customfighters.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26280

where this:



became this:



I was a fun ride, but an eyesore, so something had to be done with that. I'm going to redo the exhaust next winter, but for this summer it needed a makeover as you can see:



So off with the rust and what was left with the old paint:


And a quick sprayjob:

The tank, fairings and brake calipers went to the painter and I decided to do the frame. So, out with the engine:




There are no more ram air tubes so I wanted to clean up the frame:



Both done and came out OK:

Suzuki welds a legendarily awful looking, so I wanted to smooth them out of my sight:



Sanding bondo is great fun! Oh no, wait... It isn't...

Eventually I got it done and it was time to paint the frame:

I weighed the wheels. All together the new Marchesinis with Pilot Power Pures are 6 kg lighter (with sprockets, brake disks etc.). Not bad.


Wheels on:

Because of the fork shrouds I needed new light brackets. First some paper templates:



Bent some sheetmetal:



Upper:



A quick sprayjob now, powder coat later (unless I come up with something better and decide to make new ones):

Some stickers to finish the job and we're done for this summer. Some tweaks here and there will follow next winter.

stunning. why the stock muffler ?
Thanks. I'd like to hide the muffler under the engine somehow and probably have to rebuild the whole exhaust and possibly the muffler too for that, so I didn't want to spend any more energy on the exhaust at this point.
