How have you managed to insert the right Brook grip into the throttle tube.
The grip is 22mm as the clip-on right?
The throttle tube should be around 24.5mm or 25mm.

I had to tear apart the grip. I bored out the aluminum end parts and re-taped the leather. You're right about the sizing as is why I couldn't bore out the aluminum sleeve lol

Ok gents, after a month or so I put the wheel back together. Had the rim and custom hub powder coated and used new SS spokes as I didn't want to redo anything in the future. This was my first time for everything including removing and installing the tire/tube, and lacing a wheel. The lacing and truing was tedious but got it locked in straight. Ran into a problem today when I tried to install the calipers. The rotors are in the middle where they should be but is now hitting the spokes. Any ideas on what is causing this? I thought maybe I had the forks backwards but the air dampen knob for the forks should face outward right? Need some input please

So it's been a couple of months since we moved into our new house and haven't done much with the bike. Wanted to show what the garage looks like now 😁

That floor came out awesome. Is that one of those squeegee-on epoxy coatings?

My good friend Anthony helped with figuring out the front wheel problem. I laced it wrong because of the new gsxr hub and tried to replicate the OE wheel pattern. Took it all apart and relaced the wheel and calipers fit perfect now. The next step was welding the frame hoop together finally so I could start making my seat. I also welded the rear set mounts so linkages are in the future

Yes sir, used the Rust-Oleum epoxy flooring. Was a lot of prep work and money but so happy I did it.

Nice looking build so far! I recently installed one of those m-units on a bike really nice stuff. I have a 78 SOHC such a great motor for the street.
Keep up the good work.
