So i called the insurance company,got covered,grabbed my helmet and went for a ride. Within a mile i was f***ed! Ive had a total hip replacement,and my backs knackered.
So back home,tools out. Well a hammer.

I alread yhad risers and bars in my shed,so i fitted them,and managed to pick up a cheap R1 seat unit thing. Not very original i know,but cheap!

The hugger was sent to the landfill,as i hate them things,especially white ones.

Starting to look a little more fightered.
I ran it around for a couple of weeks like this,got bored with it,the mot ran out,and it sat under a cover for around the 3 month mark.
But,something i was doing with another bike made me think,this could work?
Im doing a 240 tyre fj12,with a 9x16 wheel,double tube swingarm etc,so figured a fat wheel might look good?
Ebay here we come....
I managed to win a vw eos "new" wheel for 3.54,a tyre for a tenner,and this set the next stage rolling.

My lathe isnt very big,so i struggle to turn large pieces of alloy,so i had to start the hub in sections,which is ok,and best of all CHEAP!!
Brake disc carrier first. I started to do this using a suzuki disc.

The sprocket side is/was a bit more involved. Again i was using "rubbish"bits of alloy that was collecting dust.
In the centre of the wheel i made a spacer come bearing carrier to add some extra support.
http://
http://
I also made some sleeves to fit inside the wheel bolt hols to add stability to my location pegs. Im not using bolts to hold it together,as when the bearings are in,all spacer in,spindle thru it all in the swingarm,nothing will move,and it allows me to steer away from ugly nuts and bolts.

Sprocket carrier. I machined a recess into the rear to allow the bits on the wheel centre to mate up.

I then decided to go for a wavey disc (pit bike one 4.50).
http://
The next stage should have been to mark the wheel hole pcd's,drill them out and fit the locating pegs into place,then make a spacer to go between the disc side and the swingarm.
It was about 4pm,i needed to be somewhere by about 6pm,so thought id pull the kawasaki wheel out,to mock it up.

And thats as far as ive gone with it. Ive bought some aprillia rsv1000 cush drive bushes which i'll fit,and then "bolt" (peg it)together.
Next up,shorten the horrible seat unit,and paint it candy green over a silver flake base! Pics soon.
All in so far its cost about 500-ish. (including insurance!).

interesting work, nice one

I think I would rather have had the wheel in the other way to its on show more when its on the sidestand??

but thats just my opinion

great work, well above what I could make and Im gobsmacked at the tyre for 10, I paid that for an almost worn out one so I could test out fitting it and mockup

Thanks for comments. I actually managed to buy 3 tyres at a tenner a piece from one seller on the auction site,who must have forgotten to put a reserve on them. I had to threaten legal action to get the things! I bought 2 240 tyres at an autojumble,again 10 a piece. So,let me see,thats 5 240 tyres!!! Im putting a 240 back end into my FJ1200 and another into a gsx efe project. Im also doing a 330 back ended EFE.
The reason i placed the wheel the way around it is,is out of meanness! By doing it this way,i can use a small piece of alloy for the sprocket carrier,and a small piece for the disc carrier,and then just use spacers to pack it out. If i had had the wheel turned around,i would have needed a large (expensive )piece of alloy to make the hub. Also,my lathe is relatively small.

Ive been asked to do a 7x17 car wheel for a mate,which will take a 190 or 200 tyre,this way you can have fairly fat back ends for little cash outlay.
Now let me see,how many 10 190 do i have..........

tyres for a tenner sometimes aint hard to find.
i use to be able to get hold of em cos a m8 knew a m8 who worked at tyre place and these muppet power rangers will change a tyre at the first puncture thus leaving a perfectly good tyre at tyre place so the bloke would fix puncture and sell em on for a tenner, beats throwing em away.
you gotta love these power rangers sometimes, lol.
never done fronts and nothing with more than 1 puncture.

Ive a shed full of tyres all bought for a tenner. Im not fussed what they are,as long as they are legal. Ive mates who change tyres for what seems no real reason other than the manufacturer has brought a new model out! More money than sense.
