The RD 400 tank will look fantastic...
This is great quality build mobius.
Subscribed. - But I guess it's gonna all be over pretty soon
Thanks guys! Yea, I don't have many more pictures of the build progress so the best I will be able to do is write some notes on some pictures of the completed bike.westgateok said:Wow that looks great man!
Yes. 59 Sprite. I rebuilt it for a friend a few years back. It was a real mess. He bought it literally in a bunch of boxes and crashed on all 4 corners.Dale said:Btw, is that a bug eye sprite in your avatar? At first I thought it was a triumph TR, then a Healy ... But then saw the plate ?
I don't remember off hand the spring rates for either end. Rider weight including gear was set at 190 lbs. (if I remember rightly) Race Tech recommended the springs based on that and my estimation of the bike weight of 320 lbs and the experience and riding style of the owner. I assumed they are better at figuring out the correct parts than I am so I simply bought what they said I needed. I probably have their recommendation recorded somewhere in an email. I set everything up to begin with per their recommendations also, and the thing was so good right out of the gate I didn't change anything. I did think it would be too stiff for the owner though as I weigh more than he does, but he says he loves it. I don't know if he has made any adjustments himself. Using the totally scientific "eagle eye engineering" method suspension sag looked pretty even and probably has 3/4 to 2/3 travel available with him sitting on it and held vertical so it certainly would seem close. That's the only check I did aside from driving it myself.xb33bsa said:wow ;D ..hay can you tell us the rider weight the bike is set for and the rear spring rate ?

xb33bsa said:that is amazing ! it is perfect in every way the way a motorcycle should be built with performance as a strong priority and the skill and knowledge to bring it together in a beatiful form. insipiring to say the least

Thank you all for the kind words. Means a lot coming from folks on this board.coyote13 said:Yes.
Ha ha. Still trying to pretend I can count that high! I would say that it is 50/50 between the thinking of what to do and the actual doing. Much of the doing is reasonably quick if I have done it before, but there was a good bit of new territory for me on this bike.brad black said:outrageous. how many hours are in it?
