Replacement NSR125 forks/wheel/caliper installed....just need new taper bearings. And another top yoke.



Sprocket/swingarm alignment working out OK I reckon.



Getting closer to final mount position for the engine.....any ideas on engine inclination datum?



That's all for now

It's rolling...:)



Aligned the rear wheel using threading and extra nuts....I now know the size of the spacers.





Stage1 engine mount fabrication..

When you're at a VW event and score a tyre cheap. £10 bargain 110/70x17" Kingstone tracker style tread pattern should do the job of sunny runs down the coffee shop I reckon ;)



Also incoming: 3x25mm flat bar for enging mounts.
Headlight mounts.

Moving along....

They'll do... ;)



The oil that came out of these was, I am sure, gearbox/diff Hypoid oil, black n thick and very smelly. An old skool trick to stiffen up the damping I reckon.

Fresh seals and Valvoline 10w Syn fork oil along with a coat of my favourite stainless steel wheel paint and bottom yoke buffing has them looking smart enough.

Footrests mocked up
Rear brake m/c mocked up

It's coming along...

ZZR brake lever pivoting on the footrest spindle, the drop link will operate the m/c nicely I reckon. Just enough clearance to work fully.

Loving this - even if I am not a 2 stroke fan !

This is being built in the true Sixties fashion ... built not bought, with some lateral thinking along the way to utilize non OEM bits .... respect.

Thanks beachy......this is never going to be a megabucks build... I love seeking out a part that will do the job, all psrt of the project for me. My son is involved at a consultancy level for me to run things by and his rational helps keep me on track and focussed....I tend to flit from one thing to another quite a lot.....he keeps me 'on message'.

As I find I need parts, the build does alter, inevitably so my initial ideas have changed to some extent, but the principle maxim of JEEP still prevails.

Must rebuild the GT200 engine......next job...I'm told!!
