My dear, it's a cool work! !!!
Take time on the engine, and especially the exhaust. I almost think bending real metal tubing is a better alternative!!
At last I have completed the Engine
Next part is the Radiator.
Wonderful, Retunga! It's very nice to see your work.
Very very nice!!
Update Time !!
I have now completed section 3 of the model build
So Engine, Radiator and exhaust systems are now done.
First the radiator
The Exhaust System.
All the parts that are built in section 3
Now section 4 of 5. Section 4 is the frame and rear suspension arm.
Oh boy, the little winding tubes would drive me nuts!
My friend, this is getting very beautiful!
These parts are so excellent, they look like Computer Renders!!
update Time, I have now completed the first part of the frame of the bike, the reason for taking so long with this that I want to get this part 100% spot on straight, When I built the V-Max the frame was a bit out and I had to do a lot small mods to the frame for it work out as I did not build carefully. The next part of the frame is going to also take a bit time to get it 100% spot on.
But for now the photos of the Bike frame.
If you cut some strips of cloth electrical tape, it would look like heat wrap on the headers! Really coming out superb!!
I have now finished the rear part of the frame of the bike, I have had to do a quick rebuild patch on the main frame as I had one part the wrong way but now it is fixed.
The next part of the bike frame, the feet pegs.
The Frame work continues.
Very nice job!! and that thing is HUGE!!! You might be able to sell it to a Shriner to ride in the parades...I was just comparing your view to my own keyboard....wow!!
update time, I have now completed the final part of section 4, the rear wheel arm. This now completes section 1 through to 4, now it is just section 5 which is the wheels and seat and few extra parts before doing the final assembly.
Enjoy the photos.
All the parts that make up section 4.
That is one beautiful collection of parts!!
I was a Yamaha Parts Manager for 2.5 years, at a dealership in Connecticut. We had a frame straightening machine. Most of the bike were so crooked from the factory, we stopped checking them. It was too time consuming, and the riders didn't seem too notice it. Yamaha was the worst, Suzuki's were nearly always dead on. I truly think it was the way they packed them. I had an XJ750 Seca as my daily rider, plus an XS1100, a huge monstrous bike. My brother in law had a Kawasaki dealership. That 6 cylinder water cool 1300 c.c. bike they made back then felt like you were sitting on half of a car.
Dear Retunga, to follow this thread is realy something! Congratulations for your progressive work.
Ever consider making an individual link chain? Even a non functioning one would be far better than what's supplied. The original at least gives the dimension.
After one rebuild of a part, I have now finished tall section of the bike !!!!
All that is now left to finish building is the wheels, Then final assembly (YIPPIE)
Here is the photos of the finished parts.
Roll on wheels
Wonderfull progress!!! We're waiting for the beutiful conclusion!!!!!
