    Got my R7 frame back today..


    and started to put it back together (the mini R7 that is) They did a nice job on the frame and it came out exactly how i wanted it, base coat of black and 3 coats of a satin clear baked on

    Still waiting on a few parts from pocketrocketz.com but it should be fully together by the end of the week. The new piston came damaged so i had to send it back for a new one. While i was at it decided to upgrade the front forks, mine were slightly bent from one if it's crashes Got some new chrome tubes with red annodized bottoms to add some bling factor, try getting a brand new set of forks for your sportbike for $75

    This is what i got done so far tonight

    I'll get some updated side by side shots soon, the big one will be making it's way to the basement within a day or 2 for a 6 month nap

    I bumped the compression up a little bit on the mini, should add a horse or 2

    good, cause the most common complaint was that it was low on hp.

    Given the size of the bike and the parts being put back on the bike are so clean you could eat with them, yes that is the workshop

    It's done!!!! Though i have not started the rebuilt motor yet or even put gas in it, it's ready to go!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm pretty happy with how it came out and it looks alot more like it's big brother now.

    There was a problem with the Piston and ring they sent me so unfortunatly, i had to upgrade yet again to something a bit more high performance All i would need to get some big power now is a bigger carb If i did that it would be around 12-12.5 hp
