OK, thought I'd wang some pics up here, as I found 2 old pics of how she used to be.

Here's the first pic, totally standard 2001 600 with 16,400m on the clock. All I had done here was polish the down pipes and fit a beowulf radiator grill :)

All images are clicky :angel

Image

Then came the bits and bobs.

Please note, this is not a build thread, I just found some pics of the bike over the past year, so thought I'd upload some for you guys to see.

Also my budget is only £50 per month, as I'm not loaded. Still no expense spared - I just have to be patient and save up for my bits.

And after nearly 2 years of ownership and only 1,000 miles covered, here she is now;

I will continue to add pics to this thread as and when I change things.

Now I have a list the length of my arm of jobs to do this year, so she is a long way from being finished.

Feel free to comment on anything you think I should do or anything you dislike 8o

looks really good mate, the lights are really nice and the solo seat cowl :thumbup is that the r6 swing arm, are you going to chop of the top and weld onto the hornet swing arm?

Welsh my 7x5 is on the way, as are flush indicators and a new relay.

Got a ton of things I'm buying at the minute and so I'm trying to prioritise :box :box

As for the swingarm, yes welsh is right, it's an R1 swinger and the plan was to remove the brace and use it on the hooner.

However, I may be having a brace custom made out of tube aliminium, so I'll see what looks best :angel

Cheers lads,

Tom 8o

Haha, yeah mate. I took her out yesterday for the first time in roughly 6 months.

She's a fair weather bike, and this is how I look after my bikes... :notme

Next day off I get I'm gonna strip her down and get bits off to the powdercoaters. She looks nice as is, but I think more black is required.

Cheers sdl :angel

we did a modd to the chain guard and meshed that out so might use this idea to go with the flow of the chain guard

No mate, the front hugger is a 1 off and the mesh is held in by the carbon resin.

My numberplate turned up today and so now I'm just waiting on my relay and rear indicators and then I can change them :angel

Look what else I found too!!

Image

I swear to God it's red!! The picture makes it look pink though.

This was taken a few years ago when I bought a knackered little Aprilia SR125 to get me to work and back. After a couple of months the usual happened...

I took it inside to live with me, then the tuning and modifying began.

She ended up as a 26rwbhp Aprilia SR172 monster!!!

That is quite a lot, considering she only had 11bhp when she was new :angel

Got some new bits in the post today, new chain and sprockets, new torque wrench with new sockets and a new generator cover - as the last owner scratched mine :(

Gonna strip some bits off the bike tomorrow to go to the coaters.

Big thanks to Nick at jesters for the super-fast delivery of my new chain :angel

Bike was looking gorgeous yesterday - now it looks like this again.

Serviced the rear caliper, pulled some bits off for powdercoating and did a few odd jobs.

And just so Welsh will chill out;

I have the proximity senser on my Motogadget, not the magnet pickup!
mine works when any metal object passes in front of the senser, i have used the four webs on
the rear disc as my senser target :D

Crap :(

Just need to figure out what the issue is asap. I'm tied up all week with work and my diploma work - so I don't really have a chance to get to the bike...

I'll just try and get a spare 30 mins at some point to get down to the garage :notme

On a side note... Does anyone know how the speed sensor from Motogadget actually works...in detail?

Yeah I have an image in mind of how the bike needs to look, which is the picture I have had in mind since I bought the bike.

I love how the chain looks and I'm glad I do after forking out £150ish quid for it!!! :eek

Hear hear :lol
1000 miles in two years is amazing, I managed to put 600 miles on my new ZX within 4 days of picking her up - admittedly the fact I was off uni for that week MAY have assisted :angel
