As per another thread somewhere, yesterday I took a long trip to Bideford to go and pick up this little beauty and bring her home to Kent





It's had a fair bit or work doing to the running gear, but currently the bodywork lets it down a little (that will be sorted)





Current spec is: (with reciepts for around 10k for the engine alone)

2332cc engine (dyno print at 162 BHP)
Porsche fan conversion (made CSP with carbon fibre shroud) (£silly money)
Omex 600 engine management and Jenvey fuel injection throttle bodies
External oil cooler and fan
Extra oil capacity sump
VAG disc brake conversion (vented front and solid rear) servo assisted
Race baffled ali fuel tank
4 inch narrowed Creative Engineering beam
Cog box gearbox - with different ratios to lower RPM for motorway
Heated front windscreen and tinted rear glass (not window film)

The previous owner had kept her for 20years and was selling due to divorce, needless to say he was a sad when I left...  :crybaby2:

I'm going to get the bodywork sorted (once I get a good reccomendation of who to use)

Thats all for now as I'm exhausted after a 5 hour drive home  :sleepy1:

Projects / to Project or not....?

So I had an idea of buying an old mini to do up in my spare time (not that I have much) but the thought was that I have the space and hopefully most of the skills / contacts I'd need to make a semi good job of something to play around in / with!

The missus bought me back down to earth when she reminded me that I have 2x non-running bikes in the garage already :( Party pooper!


So this morning I dug the Fireblade out of the corner of the garage and made contact with a friend that is going to weld the part of the engine block that broke off during my small accident almost 2 years ago... It's going there tomorrow to have the welding done.





During the accident the bike came off lightly and there was absolutely no damage other than a crack behind the generator cover on the engine... So all the panels are intact and in good condition.

Whilst I like the bike (929 RRY) and have both options of keeping it as standard and tarting it up a bit, back to good condition  and selling (registered as Cat C so wont be worth a lot), I also have always liked the Erion Racing shceme...
so the thought also is about changing it to something i might keep long term...
