09 streetracer

Post by cabbie on Thu 14 Feb 2013, 21:55

Might as well do a thread on my new 09 blade rebuild, bought a Repsol 09 blade, turning it into a streetracer as in race body kit with all the extras.

Here's the 09 blade



First new bits, OZ piega wheels with B compound power 1's and Pro lite disc's

You'll find the space a lot tighter than your other re-builds, its without a doubt the most compacted blade with a view on track. So pull ye finger out.

The new zorst system has open's up the under side and swing arm, the race fairing without lights will open up the front and sides well too, the HRC subframe is tiny and most of the loom will get cut off, once finished it should be a nice easy bike to work on Smile

14k fek I hope that includes buying the bike!... I know how you feel though, my project started as 17 inch front wheel conversion but got way out of hand, and I'm currently the wrong end of a 12k spend and I haven't got the bill for the engine rebuild and respray yet!

Top work by the way!
