No rear sets. I bought some but didn't have much previous planning for the bike and they don't fit. So I'm just using this bike as a learning experience. Screwed a lot up and wasted a lot of money but hopefully learning from it alp

Don't worry I think everyone screws up and wastes a lot of money on they're first build. If you went with super moto bars it would give you improved feel but won't fold you in half as much.

The only thing that jumps out at me is the speedo, man that thing sticks out.
I like the tank, but the dark paint just hides it's shape too much.

Wiring on this thing sucks. The harness had previously been modified by lots and lots of chopping. Trying to re wire it up and the only thing that keeps getting me is the running rear light works but doesn't flash when the brakes are applied. The brake light flashes brightly when the running lights are off

Been way too long since I've made a post or even much progress with uni starting and a new job. But here she is so far. Just got her back from having a custom 2 into one exhaust being built.


Things left to do:
Complete wiring
Have the seat upholstered
Order new throttle and choke cables
Tune up
Ride (hopefully)

Interested to read this thread, the RS was a hugely popular bike in the UK at one time and I used to have a business hiring them out for courier work.......owned 30 or so of them!
If you have any problems let me know.....hopefully I can still remember how to fix it!!

Brake light bracket needed next, and to get rid of the speedo for a much smaller gps speedo unit.

Tried kicking her over this afternoon, think the carb needs a rebuild first. All wiring is just about done
