From this (rear frame lug, slightly corroded) . . .
. . . to this.
Rebuilt to original specifications - just 2 1/2 years work.
Well, we've hit the deadline with a few hours to spare, so these shots were taken outside the workshop shortly before being loaded up and taken to the BMF Show.
There's been far more then just a splash of colour added so I'll go through the list of upgrades that have gone on. The front end is all GSXR 600, forks, brakes, wheels and handlebar controls. Straight forward swap-over from the standard SV front end. At the rear is an '09 ZX10 shock, again, a hassle free change from the standard shock as the dimensions are very similar. The rear pipe is an Akrapvic carbon unit, with a specially made exhaust hanger coming off the subframe unit.
In addition to all these performance upgrades, new light units are present. There's a bi-xenon projector lamp which will be housed in an aluminum shroud coming off the front subframe, with daylight running lights either side and the rear will be an LED arrangement, though these are still work in progress.
Its far from finished, but this stage gives a great idea of how the final bike will look. Now, lets get one up and running!
Moto-R Design has been invited to support the Angelic Bulldog Project on May 14th - 15th at the BMF Show in Peterborough.
Apologies for the lack of recent updates with regard the SV project. There has been a bit of a push on that of late as we want to have it looking its best and on display next to the Norton M28 Concept bike at the BMF Show.
So if your making a trip to the event, be sure to come and check it out for the first time! (I dont know where we will be, so look out for the rather long stand with Angelic Bulldog mock-up on).
