Okey guys, finally some of the more critical things are finished.

The HAGON shocks mounted. Now even more resting on my hands Very Happy
Hopefully not more of these scratches



Some detail drilling for extra air in the parts.






The most important change is the rearbrake.
It took a while to sort it all out, but I'm very happy with the result



And some parts for distributing the brake force.


Painted every thing black and grind off all the not needed things.



And put together







The resevoir for the oil is mounted in my seat. This way you can't see the resevoir.

Nice work!

But is this the definitive position for your license plate?

unfortunately it is. Even with the longer suspension, the plate will be to much horizontal.
Maybe I will find a better solution in the future

Maybe an idea for you too.

Thanks mates!!

About the numberplate: I was thinking about this place too, but it is a little bit to much chopper for me.
besides, it wouldn't be good for ground clearence and the angle of cornering.
and i don't think the cops are going to like that solution

Here is a overal picture

Looks great but I would install the plate lower. Even if it is to horizontal.
B.t.w: A licenceplate has to be mounted for maximum 30°diagonal messured from a vertical line.
Mine is now 50°. If a cop has problems whith that then I bow my plate to 30°.

Aii , the way it is now you are not able to see the full rear sight of the seat, and the seat is just lovely.....i would change it man.

I could complain to the Dutch "Parlement" to have the plates a little smaller, but then again , how bout our German riders ?? Evil or Very Mad

you are all right about the plate. It has to change.
I will see what I can do to change it.

The bike runs, to my idea, a lot smoother with the original and stronger battery. Is this possible?

@Marc: It is from the Highway Hawk catalog. I don't know the name anymore, sorry. It cost me around 30 euro I believe.

Hi mates,

It has been a very long time ago Embarassed

Did some riding on the bike, but I wasn't really keen on the ugly tail.
This 'stop' light has the connectors outside the housing and the are not very strong.

Besides this, sand and water can easily acces the inside.
And, the lights are not very solid mounted inside the housing.

So, I would not recommend this light.

Today I have ordered another one.
It is from Hella, so I think the quality is much much better.


when I receive it, I will make another licence plate holder so the licenceplate is under the light again.

I will keep you guys updated.

P.s. there are some very cool projects going on on this forum. I read them all!!!

Hey Hofman, i like the Hella light , much better !

I can relate it isnt simple to get the right stance for the plate and have your rear tire looking good AND have the seat as an eye catcher....

great job so far man...keep it up.

Hey hofman,

your bike turned out great. You got the front fender from rocketcaferacer parts right? It fits well around your tire, what is your tire's width?
I'm interested in buying the same fender.

It is indeed a fender from rocket.

I lowered the fender bracket so that the fender will get closer to the tire.

They are Bridgestone, Battlax BT-45 tires.
Front: 3.25-19 54 H

Great, thanks for the info. I ordered a front fender from rocket, I might trim a bit off the back tough. Just seems a bit long.

I just have to say: Really, really, really nice bike. Moving that licenseplate made it even better (a lot).

Good job!

Whoh, thank you all.
It is always nice to receive compliments Embarassed

The only thing which is standing high on my list is a compleet overhaul like marc is doing to its engine.
It all looks so nice and clean.

Well, a caferacer is never done Very Happy

Motor season is over for me....

The bike sometimes run on 3 cilinders, and sometimes on all 4.
The spark plug works fine, so I think the problem is in the carbs.
but the cilinder that sometimes will not work, has also an oil problem.

So the idea is to clean the carbs.
And measuring the compression first before getting the cilinderhead off.
than I want to measure the inner diameter. hopefully I dont have the (honen) bore the cilinders out and put new pistons etc.
the plan as to only change the valve seals and the cilinder gasket. I think these are causing the oil use and the bad running of the bike.
And I want electronic ignition Very Happy

Does anybody have a couple ideas for cleaning the carbs etc?? I have a Hayens manual Very Happy

Is it enough to clean the carbs ultrasoon, or should I order 4 of these kits?

Well, at this moment my carbs are sonic cleaned. I have 4 of those kits on the shelf.
Electronic ignition is mounted.

So pretty much the same set up. However, I only can tell you the result when my bike is assembled.
(best guess 6 months.)

Good luck!
