Right, everything is pretty much on it's way for the rebuild as well as people contacted to look at the scratches on the fiberglass parts that can be fixed.
I picked up a 91 J frame as I've already written..and then of course, a few weeks after the J frame the following came up on ebay Germany. I had to ask myself the question, if it was worth investing in a genuine K frame. Well, I believe so.I could be wrong of course, but it was almost worth the gamble and as the bike was a K, I wanted it to remain a K and not a J with a K engine.
Obvioulsy I asked for the Vin number to ensure it was a K frame.
I have, I confess, started the usual Project race bike by buying in several items that I didn't really need but just had to have due to the fact that I really like having top equipment and I'm almost allergic to standard bikes.
So when these popped up I looked at the website from the company who make them and was surprised to see a price tag of 450€ , and that was reduced from 525€! They look amazing and imo if your building a bike that was made for one rider, the rear sets are a major part of the finish. There are more basic units at around 100 quid, but these look amazing.
And last but not least, I found a guy on ebay who was knocking out the special tool I require to drop the engine for a tenner each on ebay. Ok, the postage was the same as the bloody thing, but I will be using it more than once and its always good to have.
So, once the frame arrives, we have the following rolling chassis:
Frame with Aprilia swingarm
6 pots up front
aprilia brembo at the rear (matching gold which helps)
std K wheels
Muzzy full race exhaust
Should look the biscuits when its rolling!
