Well for those interested attached are the pictures of my Blade re build.
Bike 1998 RRW with 9k miles.
Stripped to engine and frame
2002 954 upside down front end, stripped re built with K tech springs, re damped etc and anodised legs with powder coated fork bottoms complete with 17" SP1 front wheel, galfer waive discs and pads, Hel brake lines. Fully refurbished front callipers with stainless steel fixings
1998 VFR800 single sided swingarm machined to fit Blade frame including new bearing casing to house the 2 bearings on the adjuster side, rear wheel and calliper from the same bike. Fully refurbished SSA including all new stainless fixing bolts. Rear calliper refurbished and new stainless steel fixings. New galfer disc waiting to go on when i can be bothered to take the hub apart again.
Refurbished rear shock including total re build and re powder coating of spring.
New titanium rear sprocket, new front sprocket to match pitch of VFR 800 sprocket and new gold chain. All fixings replaced using stainless steel.
Removed rear seat and added solo seat cowl sprayed to match standard colour scheme but retain retro Blade look with opening storage compartment. New LED tail light with rear indicators mounted into ends if tail light. New 2005 model front indicators.
Polished Akrapovic headers mated to titanium Leo Vinci can (sounds lovely) As critical as i am of my own work not happy with the exhaust hanger, but hey someone else made it. Need to get something more bespoke if any one can help.
Engine cases extensively cleaned and polished using wire wool and solvol to bring back the original finish.
Gilles titanium rear sets.
Its taken me 9 months. I am not a mechanic but i had an idea of what i wanted to achieve and stuck to it. I hope anyone looking will agree she looks in my opinion as Honda should have made them!!
Now that she looks the part maybe some engine work over the winter!
Let me know what you think!!
