04 1000 rr seat unit and rsv swing arm onto rrv

Post by scotty80 on Thu 31 Mar 2011, 22:06

Well now that i am off the road for a bit due to having a op on my sholder i thought now is the time to get the blade sorted.So started today after pickin up the seat unit from Andy (Cove),thanks mate hope the move works out ok, any way was going to leave it till sholder was a bit better but then thought stuff it lets get on with it got the old tail unit and subframe of and set about chopping a spare subframeto get the 04 one to fit but then after fitting it to the bike the seat unit sat way to low so tomorrow i am going to set about chopping the subframe a bit more till i am happy with it. i dont have much free cash at the mo so its all
going to be done on a budget of not a lot but i am sure i will get there with it as it aint going back on the road till its all done. I have a few bits still to find like undertray and seat cowl so if any one has any of the two feel free to drop me a pm,anyway here are a few photos to be going on with will post up more as i go

Well got a little bit done today sorted the subframe out just got to make some proper brackets to mount the seat unit to then get it welded then modify the gsxr 1000 undertray to fit sort out the battery box.
got a dilema do i paint the rest of the body work the same as the repsol bits thats on it or do the seat unit and front fender to match how it is now
