I'm looking to change both front and rear wheels on my RC51. I'm having trouble finding wheels and parts in general. I was wondering if changing the swing arm and front forks would open up more options?
Your absolutely right. It does sound like way to much work. But trying to buy anything that comes off a RC is crazy. I can get a swing arm from a 1000 re for a few hundred bucks. Rear wheel 80 bucks front wheel 80 bucks. I can't even find a SP2 swing arm and RC wheels must be made out of gold. 300 for a front. 300 for a rear.
I just started Searching for different Honda's anything other than RC51 And it seems like they are plenty and pretty reasonably priced. I mean 500 bucks for a tail section.. they have cheep aftermarket Body kits but all I hear is horror stories. Original body kits are either busted AF or somebody want something like $3000.
I found a company named NiceCycles That Claim to have made and patent Molds And they offer injection molded body kits for the RC51. They seem to have real nice reviews.
I just want her back to the glory I know she will be. I've always wanted an RC but Timing and finances always played against me. I ran across the one pictured in jumped on it it was literally given to me. I may have a grand in it now. I just want her sexy again
