EDIT: The sort-of finished product. For the last couple of days I've been dropping subtle hints on FaceBook, but i guess its now official.. Here's Archie - My RGV250 track bike!! It was advertised on OCAU for 3k, but after a price drop to 2700, it blipped on my radar, and i saddled up the trailer to the Jazz to head up to have a look. The For Sale ad mentioned the following: - HEL braided brake lines (front is in the race setup) - CNC machined brake and clutch levers (really adds feel to the braking) - Lucky Strike paintwork, real head turner bike.. - New Pirelli Sport Demon tyres, both front and back - New brake pads and fluids - New rear disk brake rotor - New wheel bearings and cush drive rubbers - New suspension dog bone bearings - New fork seals and oils - New gearbox oil - Registration till May 2010 - White powdercoated wheels - Carbon fibre exhaust cans - Almost new chain and sprockets (done 5000kms ago) Bike had been low-sided whilst doing a u-turn on a patch of gravel at low speed (about 5kph) causing the sratches on the RHS panel and some scratches on the nosecone and mirror. Damage done was only cosmetic *phew!* The engine had done about 13500kms before the rebuild. Bottom end was sent away to be rebuilt, trued and balanced and he'd done the top end rebuild himself. Kicks over and starts first go everytime, now just needs to be run in. Add to the deal an ENTIRE Carload of spares and bits, a whole set of fairings and a CBR400 frame and engine and i now have myself a bike! Theres enough RGV Spares to build 2 engines and 2 gearboxes, a set of CF Pipes, a Shitetonne of odds and ends and gear for the CBR400. Zero rear vision! The seller claimed it would kick first go - It Did. BOOYAH! He also claimed it was still regisitered - yes again! WIN! He also said it was perfectly fine, ready to ride away and run in. and, HE WAS ACTUALLY TELLIN' THE TRUTH! Enough chit chat, the bike!!! CRG Levers HEL Brake Lines Pirelli Sport Demons - Same as the Ninja... Fully floating front discs - this one is actually fuxored.. Getting used to having to chin on the tank! LPM and I at a lookout on the way home The sunshine really started to get to me here.. The CBR 400 Frame and Engine Time for a Wash, Clay, polish and Wax - all by myself! Its amazing what a good quality clar bar will get rid of! Before: After: Finally back in the ACT! Plans? Well its eligible for PCRA Period 6, so I'll track it for a little while, and hope to do the PCRA 1 hour this year! Then get crackin' and do PCRA next year! .
