Here in AU I use truck wash, TD20, it is thick and sticks to vertical items, I spray it on thick, leave it for a couple of hours and then hose off with the nozzle set to gun, usually the really thick grease that builds up around the chain, the sump area etc will need 2 goes at it, perhaps 3 if it is really bad, BUT BUT BUT, I never have to scrape, rub or brush etc, just the hose, everything comes off and your ready to bead blast or whatever.

SUZUKI PROJECT

Post  jordi on Sat 24 Apr - 19:13

It’s been quite a while since we announced the beginning of our project, so we think it’s time for an update. Unfortunately, we lost any photos of the bike before we started the conversion, but it looked more or less like this

[img][/img]

The first thing we did was tot take out the engine and open it in order to check it was still possible to make it run again. It was quite damaged, probably the mileage on the counter was just an approximation Wink but we went on anyway. New piston rings, valve resealing, and we will probably have to replace the timing chain guide, as it looks quite damaged. And so on, but once we saw it was possible (yes, we can) we focused on the rest of the bike. This is what we got left:



Well, the usual dismantling, cleaning…



Ok, time to saw.



We had long been waiting for that moment. From the very beginning, the bike seemed much too long for us, we wanted to cut off the rear part as much as possible. After that, we applied some imprint to the frame and related parts in order to prepare them for the painting job.



After we had painted the frame silver, we checked how it looked like with the stock tank, which is quite nice, but not as much café racer as we’d like. We also put together the fork, after taking off the black paint and leaving it in polished aluminium, quite raw, but racy as well. The handlebar is a gift from a friend, a kind of three-piece clubman from an old Ducati, probably. It looked like this:



Wait a minute, somebody’s coming. Hey, long time not seen, look at what we’re doing, you like it, right? What? You have what??? An old Sanglas fuel tank? Would you… ? Really? Ok, there we go:



And this is where we’ve got to. Now we’re thinking about the seat and footpegs while we get seriously into the engine thing.


And now, for something completely different…

While we were working on the bike, we got a small gift:



Any ideas?

Hi Jordi - nice work - the Sanglas tank looks perfect and i think this part is not so easy to get! Any idea for the "mopped" - yes, take the seat for your Susi - Very Happy
I`m impressed, what`s possible with the Suzuki. So i wait for the result.

hoy I think your a good choice I, for one Sanglas tank to use, I would not have emerged because the brand sanglas, is not really known but still a good model, what will you do with the saddle seat, I am in fact doing the same bike, although at a slow way, because my other one has higher priority
