I'm not sure what...

Re: Brakes failed!

Wow, that looks like it rusted from the back and then fell off!

Again, respect for dealing with it.

Re: SVBMX Build Thread

Thats lovely.

Adding the additional white stripe in has really helped. Maybe another at the bottom to help the transition to the black?

Re: SVBMX Build Thread

Don't try and bring my failings into this (I've been hard at work actually, but no progress to show at the moment).

Back to the very nice bike in this thread, I've just had a thought... How...

Re: Tank questions

That's just a little surface rust and nothing to worry about. Wipe it over with WD40 and then the same to lube the lock. Spray it on and work the mechanism. Its not going to contaminate the petrol,...

Nice, but needs more engine.

Out of interest how did you bond the carbon to the bamboo?

Re: SVBMX Build Thread

From this angle it looks like the fairing finishes to far back covering the frame, and the curvey frame is one of the best parts of the bike. Not sure what other angles look like?

As for the...

Re: New member - Cafe Racer (ish) project.

Thanks for the info on the rad.

I also like what you've done routing the rear brake line along the torque arm, keeps it very clean, a nice touch.

Re: New member - Cafe Racer (ish) project.

Re: Bike swap dilemma!

Having owned both a ER6 and a SV650, I still own the SV.

The ER6 is a good bike don't get me wrong, but the VTwin power is more fun to ride and if you have upgraded the suspension on the SV then...

Re: Project: 500GP
