For the last few years ive been looking and watching the net with great interest and admiration specials building. Especially RG500 conversions.
As my first bike was a stroker (RS250) and much prefered watching the days of Haga and Rossi etc knocking each other about on the NSR YZR and RGV 500s iv wanted to build a rep for a few years.
So while i was on holiday in september i saw an ad on ebay were a guy had already gathered parts to build such conversion. he had a complete RG400 and rgv250 rolling chassis and a whole host of spares. I made a deal with him and snapped them up. Ive sold off all the parts i dont need and almost recouped all my money initially laid out but have a complete Rg400 motor all wiring and cdis, saec, and bits. All RGV gear. Ive started making engine mounts and a cardle at work. But then i saw the ultimate engine advertised. I already planned on rebuilding my engine to a similar spec and this would cost as much as i have paid for a complete fresh engine built by probably the worlds most respected RG tuner. Its predicted to produce around 130bhp.
Heres a few pics not really got stuck into it yet but will update when i have made progress for those interested!!
