Well the time has come and now the star ship enterprise has came to an end and needs a fresh lease of life. Ive been thinking this over from months and could never come up with a colour or what to do with her but at last things are rolling and im hoping for a quick turn around only time will tell.

before


Took her off the road on Tuesday and stripped all the body work off with the spare tank for painting. In the mean time i got these:D


Tonight i set to work stripping all the bits off ready for powder coating in the morning. heres how it looked .




Lots of fighting with knackered old bolts so need to get new ones ordered tomorrow as well as making sense of the loom and where to put it lol. I don't have Abba stands of anything like that so made use of a car jack, bag of sharp sand, bricks and an old computer unit:w00t:


Heres my what im left with to meet mv-woodster for the powder coating so lots of rust removal relocating wires and tarting up to do over the next few days.

Had a slow moving day today getting the frame all ready for spraying aswell as attacking rust on the chain adjustment plates, various nuts and bolt heads.

im missing afew pictures as was too busy cracking on with the work but managed to clean up the calipers for painting but im not happy with the finish of the black satin so thatll be redone at some point in the week

before

after


the fork legs looked abit pitted and worn so i sanded filled and repainted


the frame being worked on


and the finish product


once the lacquer has cured ill be setting to work on rubbing it all down with compound to get the silver spot on but now i need to work out what to do with the engine as its looking pretty dirty now the frame is fresh again.

you can see the gsxr shock is a little bit longer than the sv one and wider so you need to order a new bolt for the gsxr shock. it dropped in nice and easy havnt got a clue about the clearance with the battery box yet as my sub frame is away so got to wait for that.





not really got much else done due to waiting on the parts back from powder coating apart from more painting worn bits and polishing so next update should be Wednesday night

Tonight was good but slow moving i didn't realise how much i had taken off of the bike until i emptied the jar of screws:w00t: The painter turned up with all the body work and looks the nuts shame the lighting inside doesn't give it justice.

Got to work sorting out my brakes had to fit a banjo pressure sensor for the rear brake light as the old spring one doesnt work on the rear sets it all needs testing and adjusting bu can be done once the build is finished.



the tank was a pain trying to get everything back on it without marking it then once it was on i forgot to flush it out so off it came again i was not impressed. this picture came out well you get a good idea of what the paint looks like in person.



after what felt like all night i managed to sort out all the headlight loom which now has the h.i.d loom in it aswell and made sense of it to get it all tucked away and neat. got most of the front end back on



will be back to work on her tomorrow once im back from swimming fingers crossed ill get all the front sorted and start on that subframe.

Well it shows i couldnt think of anything other than the bike i got all of 4 hours sleep:hehe: was back on it at 9am getting on with the loom trying to work out where it all went lol.

Now it was back on the wheels i could get to the header without breaking my back and finished off polishing it



The battery box did need abit of trimming to get the clearance from the piggy bakc of the rear shock but luckily it was just a bit of trim on the front which must shield it from crap. once that was gone it slotted in nicely and doesnt foul the battery or subframe.



had a little visitor


heres afew pictures of some steps of the build up until its finished all thats left now is a good clean and wax.








all done and needs dusting


p.s the mirrors are on order

Good effort. Looks like you did a really good job there.

How does the gixxer shock feel in comparison to the old sv one? Does it make the tail any higher?

Well done!! Great rebuild bro, Damon asked the question I was going to ask about the shock, you gotta give us a full report when you get the suspension set up (please Very Happy )

Are the rear sets by 'Diamond Racing'?

are you gonna have mirrors on it or not? if you are, look into the GSXR ones with integrated turn signals, quite clean Smile
