Code name E.M.M.A. - Tobiīs RC 51 project

Mates,

I decided to start an own thread for my project here too (because not everyone can/will follow it on facebook)...

Because of sitting behind my working desk, I can only post three pics! During the next days, I will update it step by step, that we all have the same status quo.

That was the first status: RC 51 Sp-1 (complete Wilbers suspension as well as 5 spoke PVM wheels).

After some extra love, everything is a bit "refreshed"...

Been following on facebook tobi.

If you can mold the bottom of that endurance tank... I would do you a one off airbox to work with it if you want an open top like T1.
Or... hold off until spring... my own MORI / HRC Airbox kit will be available if all goes well.
Another member has already ordered one.

Otherwise, keep up the build... I have been watching awhile - while you hoard your parts.

Thank you James. I canīt wait too, but I have definitely no stress to finish it tomorrow. I spend the last 10 hours in cleaning the SP-2 subframe. Hopefully I will finish it on Friday.

10 hours that shows dedication.

I think the longest I've spent cleaning, not polishing, mine was about 4 hours, and that was for the whole bike.
This off season I'm planning a thorough cleaning where I may polish some of the bits just to get rid of the oxidation.


Keep us posted

In my world is cleaning = cutting, grinding as well as making the sh*t a bit lighter!
