Today we put bike "together". Only 1,5 weeks to go before Finlands biggest motorcycle exhibition.
Lots of parts are now in place but fitment is something like "almost alright", if you now what I mean.

Front end not in its place, upper tripletree and speedometer is too high. Carbs are just hanging there and there is not enough room for middle airfilters.
Exhaust is not the one, which will finally be there. Shiftingrod is attached with zipties. Etc.

So we have less than two weeks to finalize as much of the parts as we can.
Main thing is to work on rear cowl to make bike look more ready and few carbonfibre parts has to fabricate.

Still here is few pics. Feeling much more satisfied when I look my project right now. Looking good for my eye  8)












If you are in Finland between 2nd to 4th of February, visit Exhibition Center in Helsinki  ;)

It may be just pics, but with the shorter front wheel that the GSXR front end has plus fitment, the tank drops pretty significantly at the front.  It gives it an angle that doesn't match your frame and seat.  More importantly, depending on where you petcock is located you may lose a significant volume of usable fuel space.  If you draw a level line from the petcock forward, anything below that line will never reach the carb.  Plus, many petcocks have two straws for fuel- one for normal operation and one for reserve.  It's possible you'll have to switch your petcock to reserve with 1/3 tank left.  I could be wrong, so I'm just offering food for thought.  It's a situation I myself have had to adjust for in the past.



I wonder if Khneisser is the same company.  The eBay username is different, but their location is Osagna, Switzerland.  If you think they are the same company, please report how good the quality is.  I need to have a plate remade for one of mine.

Good catch/notice!
I haven't thought about that...

Petcock is located exactly middle of the tank and from your notice, this might be a problem.
I will test that in future.


What comes to VIN plate, I just look at emails and it is the same company, located in Osagna.
I will write about quality of my new VIN plate when it arrives and get back to you  :)

Great bike. I like the swing arm goes well with tank and forks, the vrod light is good too. Custom work takes time huh?

Plate came very quickly!

I'm just starting to feel excited, because this build is now moving on in speed


Great bike. I like the swing arm goes well with tank and forks, the vrod light is good too. Custom work takes time huh?
I had lots of negative thoughts and swing arm confused my head in one point of this build. I didn't know do I like it or not  :D
After assembly of the bike to this point, it now looks really good. Lines and shapes goes well with everything else, just like you said  ;)
