Default Hi

Hi all,

I wonder if anyone can help?

In my garage, in bits, i've got a Suzuki engined hardtail chop. It's reg'n no is YNC 94X and it has a few homebrew brass bits.

eg A big fook off bullet shaped taillight and footpegs with bullet case endcaps.

Also a lot of brass domed nuts have been used.

The engine is a 398 cc 4 cylinder with 2 carbs (the logbook says GSXR750 though). I've got the engine rigged up on a test bed and it's running quite well, although the carbs need some attention...

Not sure if i'm going to stick with this engine though as I think a bigger lazier engine would be better.

What I'm after though (and I know it's a long shot) is; does anyone know the history of this bike, in particular what the forks, wheels and brakes etc are off?

Cheers,

Tony

Can you take some decent pictures of the brakes, forks and wheels etc, not very clear on that one.

Thanks, lol - yep, the apes are far too high for me, I took them off and then decided to restore the whole bike as it's beginning to look a bit scruffy

Back home a day late so i'll stick some photos up tomorrow.

I haven't said anything about myself, so here goes!

I'm sort of 53, but tell everyone i'm 35 - been around bikes all my life. I've had all sorts from NSU, Sachs, Bantams, then onto a Tiger Cub and C15. Graduated to larger British single and twins, Jap 2 strokes, then onto Jap 4 cylinder 4 strokes - probably the same as anyone else of a similar age.

The last 10 years i've spent with crossers, trials and supermoto's, but that's all beginning to hurt too much!

I've currently got a '97 CBR600 that I want to do something radical with (if that's possible) and the above chop.

My mum and dad live in Spain - he's 80 now and has a Ariel Square 4 and a Jubilee version 850 Commando (although all he does is start them occasionaly now - says he's too old to get his leg over them)

Anyway, I don't want to bore you to death....

Should I move the 'help' part of this to another section of the forum now?
