I know the fella that built this and he took it with him when he emigrated out to Spain in 2006. He just left it in his garage to fester

At this point i got the Blade down to me mate Dan at JustMotorcycles for him to do the subframe.
I ebayed the running gear/brakes and subframe/seat unit for more than the price of the whole frickin bike bounce
The first purchase was a complete 2006 R1 front end for 350......result

As soon as i offered up the 2006 R6 seat unit i knew it was a wrong'un. So after hours of scratching me head and google image searches i decided on the Triumph 675 race seat unit
This is the first mock up with the VFR arm in wearing Dans Triumph rear wheel half of an old Blade subframe and the compulsory bike builders blocks of wood Laughing

I went back over to the Ducati whell as i thought the Trumpet item abit too spokey. When i offered up the R6 Laser GP can it looked too skiny. But it just so happened that Dan had a GSXR 1000 K7 Remus end can that fitted the bill so we cable tied it up for effect

Fitting the VFR arm and using the Blade tie-rods jacks the bike up and make it dangle abit too dangerously on the side stand for me
So i got these beautys

My original plan was to polish the frame and running gear and colour wise was a lairy paintjob based on the JOKER out of Batman but that all changed as soon as i took charge of the headlight mask.
Now the frames going satin black, gloss black bodywork with some airbrushing

The 180 Ducati back wheel was looking a wee bit Leena Zavaroni to me so......
Ive swapped back over to the VFR axel and have bought this 7 x 17 bad boy

The rim is designed for a 205 to 225 car tyre
Most lads that do the car wheel conversion fit the Metzeler ME880 210 trye which is predomantly for the Hardly Rideable brigade
As i want this to handle plus i have a mint BT014 front tyre in the garage i got hold of this hunk of rubber a BT014 200/50/17

Ive got SERKS MARSTON to do me a 1-off rad aswell, 3 to 4 week turn around
the filler cap being moved to the left hand side with an intergrated expansion tank
The bottom hose will exit at the bottom of the rad instead of the back
fan will be centrally mounted
The top hose will be a straight run over the cam cover
Should look cool
