All right!
Long time no update,
What have I done?

Resprayed the engine.
Mounted polished parts (Perfect job, done by Andreas!)
Got back my frame and some belongings. All sandblasted and powder coated.





Mounted progressive Hagon springs:


The problem with the speedometer is solved:


All carbs had have a Sonic treathment (thank you TinTin!)


Also mounted these things:


Work done but no pictures:
- new wheelbearings
- conical bearings front suspension (ja jongens balhoofd in engels??)
- new rear end coper bearings
- revision of masterbrakecilinders and brakes itself.

Thats it for now.
Next update in 2010 I think, have to sail again.

CJ

Hi guys,

Coming back from the sea, now 4,5 weeks holiday. So a lot of time to spent on my project.
Currently busy with the electronics. I have made a aluminium plate for behind the carbs to put several things like the ignitionkey on.

Does anybody know where to get these things that go around the frame, and hold a plate. Like here in the middle, with the rubber on it.
Already looked at Gamma etc. and also the more specialised stores didn't know it Rolling Eyes



Thanks.

PS: The bike is Hofmans, I hope you don't mind I use it for an example here. Very Happy

In dutch the company is called Enorm.

Good luck!

All right Thanks!

@andreas: thanks for the offer, but I would ratter know where to order, so I can order things myself (instead of ordering everything via you)

Next question:
I want goodridge steel brake hoses, has anybody ordered these? If yes: where?

Also looking for a single brakelever, so if you got something, I'm interested.

All right.

Ordered Goodridge brakelines. And a helmet:

A christmas present.

Last wednesday I also past my first out of three exams for my driverslicense. (special movements)

Tommorow I want to send my wheels away to 'haan wheels' for new spokes.
I've just a stupid question:
The front wheel is the bigger wheel and the rear, the smaller right?

If you mean the outline then yes the frontwheel is bigger.
Mostly for older bikes 19 inch front and 18 inch rear.

nice helmet

Thanks for the support.

Found the parts in a store that builds firetrucks!
I think the gasoline in my search costed more than the actual parts itself Rolling Eyes

Did a lot of small stuf on the bike.
While looking at it, I'm beginning to think about this gastank:


Do you guys know how it is called?
I've no clue what so sort of tank would cost, do you? If is not to much, I think I will get one.

Also can't make up my mind between two different seats
1:

2:



What do you think?

Think the first one is a ducati-seat, can be wrong, most important is what you think.
If you think it looks right, go with that.
Do your own thing and you can never be wrong!

@ andreas:
Indeed the middle one is the one from that picture I'm looking for. Hmmmm, difficult.

The blue one is indeed a Ducati seat.

Hoi CJ,

Ik zag dat je bij je verjaardagscadeaus ook een mooie universele remschakelset hebt gekregen.
Heb je al enig idee hoe je die gaat bevestigen? Daar ben ik wel benieuwd naar omdat ik ook met een CB750 bezig ben.
Je frame is ook al gecoat zie ik.
Dus eventuele beugels die nog nodig zijn om de set passend te maken zul je toch op je frame moeten lassen.
Of heb je daar een andere oplossing voor.

Ik volg jouw topic, met grote aandacht! Very Happy

Maar ik had gedacht om de Raask set eens goed onder de loep te nemen.
En deze na te maken van 8 of 10 mm dik alu.

Met een decoupeerzaag, slijptol, en een vijl kom je volgens mij een heel eind.
Daarna even goed polijsten, Klaar! cheers

I think the "custom" series are just the chrome version of "road" series.
Chrome is more expensive... but does it look better?

Een voorbeeld (niet superduidelijk) van een universele rearset.

[img][/img]

Maar wil je nu zelf een rearset maken? Ik dacht dat je er een had.
ALs je eraan begint maak er dan een how to van hier op het forum. Ik ben er erg benieuwd naar.
