Bringing a legand back to stock

Hi everybody


Last week I got my Fireblade from 1993 bought in Germany and transported to Denmark.


The bike has always been my childhood dream, but the timing for a project has never been there before now.
I am 38 years old, and have to boys at 3 and 7, and because of the age they are now, I can finally get the time to work on my childhood dream. No more diapers, no more they cant sleep in the evening and no more helping them on the loop - Freedom = Fireblade


I am thinking ill make this thread so I can keep track off my process, and show you guys how its going, and also ask for help.


This is the bike now:

And this is how it shall end up:

So my checklist so far is:
New decals
Paint all the fairings, and they are original and in good shape
Paint tank and front fender
New original blinkers
The muffler is the original where the black paint has been stripped, it need to be painted again
Clear windbreaker
All the parts that can be polished are going to be polished
Clutch cover ect. has to be painted, anyone now the name af that color? (looks like gunmetal og antrazit)
Bottom of the forks need to be painted
Wheels painted
New rear seat in purple


Service that need to be done:
New oil and filter
Drain and flush cooling system and new fluid
All cables need to be lubed
New oil and seals in forks
New tires
Carburators get an overhaul and calibrated
Valve clearence is being cheked
New bearings on the wheels and in the steering
Speedometer opened up and cleaned
New batteri (don't now what type yet)


So the list is long, but I have Haynes and the officiel repair manual for the bike, so I can't wait.
Winter is coming - in this case its a good thing.


If I miss something please let me know.


Have a good one.


Br.

Hi Allan.

Thanks for this post. I will be following with interest. It is also a passion of mine to have/restore an early Blade. Your progression might inspire me to stop buying new ones.

Re: Bringing a legand back to stock

Nah, not yet. Tomorrow is the last day on trial plates, and the disassembly begins.
I got an e-mail from The Image Works, and they can make my decals. The only thing I need to figure out is if the decals have to be above the clear coat or under. The company gives me two different prices for under or over (over is more expensive). I want them as they are original, and that is above - right?

Originally they are on top of the paint and not lacquered over

After a nasty mishap with a rear paddock stand I would recommend an ABBA stand with a front paddock stand, safe as houses then.

Re: Bringing a legand back to stock

Thanks man.
Should the front lifter be V or T shaped?

I’ve got the front lifting kit, that’s everything you’ll need. The ABBA stands are brilliant they’re so secure.
