Back Yard Build RRV

Post by bogsquid on Mon 29 Jul 2013, 19:48

Thought i'd start a little thread of the mods im doing and have started, I've got a pic in my head how i want the bike to look so i thought why not !! Smile

Having to morf the front of the sub frame to the new 929 one!


All done!

Lining up petty well

It's an old 929 back end so looks rough, just have to do the same with the seat now as it needs shortening by nearly 2".

This is the undertray choice but they're in the states and they don't ship over so having a buddy of mine over there send me one Smile

Shorten the 929 but put the front of the rrv one so it hooks on under the tank mount.

Sounds like you gonna be havin fun with fibreglass then! if you cover everything around it in cling film you can get an accurate shape without the resin sticking  where you don't want it
