Chimpy telling me how to fit a zorst! "I want it like this ok" she said!!



The old blade system cut and modded with an R1 can and link pipe, just two brackets to finish off.





Will make a start on the fairing tomorrow.

Discs are EBC, Aqua blasting is small glass beads blasted at high pressure with water jet, it gives alloy a new uniform clean as new look.

Blimey you dont hang around Cabbie, the stripped motor was in pristine condition despite it being a stunt bike. Please take it easy Chimpy that is a "dry" motor and needs to warm up gradually for oil to circulate and be absorbed into the liners. Fast and safe riding Chimps
