Topics I've Started
04 April 2013 - 07:42 PMHey you crazy guys and gals :yahoo:
Not been on in a long time but reckoned its about time I popped my head round the door to say howdy-doody and to see how you are all doing B)
I had been busy with the kit car build over Christmas and in to the new year, but have been held up these last couple of months waiting for bodywork to be produced. So far though it is coming on really well and I am happy with how its progressing. I did make things a little more difficult for myself though quite early on by getting lured (didn't take much :pardon: ) in to buying a ZX10R turbo engine (well I bought a ZX10R turbo bike and stripped it for the engine) which is going to make the build more complicated as there has only ever been one other ZX10R turbo'd version of one of these cars built before..... but bugger me it's going to make it chicken oriental!! :unsure:
So here are a couple of the latest pictures of the car:
13 November 2012 - 08:02 PMHas anyone else seen the pictures of this thing? Just seen one posted on Facebook by the Bike Channel and it looks lovely!! As if the 990 Superduke wasn't enough, they now make it a1290 :)
I would post a pic up but I am just on my phone so can't really don't. If someone else can find one and post it for others to see that would be appreciated :)
19 October 2012 - 11:42 PMJust thought I would share this with you guys, as although it is for my kit car build, it is a wiring loom from a bike. Just thought the photos might be of interest to some.
I am using the original wiring loom from the ZX10R when I put the engine in the car. But I will need to extend some of the wires, and alter / short out certain other parts that I dont need or need to change, like the side stand switch etc. The wires that will need extending are really the lights and the connections for the dash mounted buttons / switches to turn the lights and things on and off.
So what I needed to do was strip back all the electrical tape on the loom and then trace and label every connection and loose wire end, so that when I get to the point of laying it in the car, I can see what needs to lay where and what will need extending.
So here is how the loom looked like to start with:
And this is how it now looks:
Just thought it might interest some people :pardon:
19 October 2012 - 04:16 PMYes yes yes, I know it's not a bike, but some of you have shown some interested in this new adventure of mine, so thought I would share the blog with you.
With some pointing in the right direction from Biker Panda (cheers buddy :good:) I have set myself up a proper blog site / page. It is a blog though so you cant post comments or stuff on there like you can on a forum, but I thought it would be cleaner and easier to manage than doing it on a forum like I have on here in the past with other projects. If you want to comment or speak with me then I will still be knocking about on here and you can always send me a private message if you want.
So anyway...... go take a look. Follow it if you want...... especially you Simon_H as I am the Guinea Pig for this as far as you are concerned B)
08 October 2012 - 06:51 PMI have just recently broke a 2006 ZX10R as I wanted the tuned engine, radiator, and clocks for a kit car build. But the rest of the bike, together with a mountain of spares, are up for sale.
The bike was a dedicated race bike (no V5) and was a VERY competitive bike in the previous owners hands, and was fully working as a 100% ready race bike before I broke it up.
There are sooooo many things that came with the bike I have not had chance yet to itemize everything in order to list it, but here is the main bulk of it. If you are after any other parts then I will probably have them, but you will just need to ask. I will also just list a few items per post in order to keep within the limits of how many photos you can post in one single submission.
PRICES: If you are interested in a particular item, or several items, then make me an offer or send me an email asking for a price.
LOCATION: I am in Wakefield (West Yorkshire) and would prefer items to be collected if they are big / bulky items. I do have a car and am prepared to drive and deliver items for a charge (just covering fuel) if this is discussed and it is not the other end of the country. Just send me a message and we can discuss what options we can come up with (i.e. post, me deliver, meet halfway etc).
1. Full set of bodywork removed from the bike including; front fairing with screen, oil catch belly pan / lower fairing, seat unit, tank (with fuel pump), and front mudguard. All sprayed (not done professionally but still pretty good, just with odd blemishes) in BMW Mineral White. Couple of small marks on underside of catch tray but nothing major at all. Also has holes cut in sides of front fairing so crash bungs can be fitted. Tank fitted with quick release racing filler cap (no key needed). A complete makeover for you bike in one package with no painting to odd panels required.
Here is how it looks on the bike:
Off the bike:
For photos of individual parts please message me.
2. Another full set of race bodywork, again in BMW Mineral White, but no fuel pump on the tank and no front mudguard. Includes what you see in the picture below, plus I will throw in a used front screen to stick in the front fairing even though not shown in the photo. Either buy this separate or buy together with the full set above to use as already painted spares if needed or just to have a second set of bodywork in the same colours. Holes will need to be drilled in these for fitting as not all previously fitted to the bike. If you require photos of individual parts then send me a message and I will sort them out for you.
3. Fuel tank. In a metallic / pearl type of white although unsure of exact colour. Is very close to the colour of the bodywork above, but not an exact match. Fuel pump not included (I do have these for sale separately if required though). Tiny tiny dint in the top of the tank just in front of filler cap but hardly noticeable, and a few scratches here and there. Tank is fitted with clear Stomgrip pads.
4. Spare race seat unit. Still got old owners race number on but these are just stickers and can be easily removed. good condition in general with just odd marks from going in and out of vans etc as you would expect.
5. :022 BSB spec fuel tank in Kawasaki green. Bought from Hawk Racing team. Lightweight tank, perfect for shedding a few pounds. Comes as tank shell with no fuel pump (see other listings if you require one) or fuel filler cap.
6. Rear subframe. Not much more to say about that really.
