04/03/07 – Building The Bike
With under a month to go until the first round it was time to start building the bike. The fact that we had no parts didn’t help but at least we could start stripping the bike, fit some decent tyres and prepare for testing.
The suspension is due imminently although when the rest of the parts will arrive is anyone’s guess. With no bodywork we had to improvise. A very battered GSXR1000K6 fairing was abused enough to make it fit and plenty of fibre glass added to make sure it held together. An old seat unit from the GSXR600K6 was also adapted to fit with a little work.
