Project R6
« on: March 04, 2011, 10:00:12 am »
Guys and girls I know this is not for super bikes but hey this is what I did over the last 3 weeks.
Bike was in an accident in September and I could fix it for the owner.

2 cases of beer (Standard price for a bike respray) and him to do most of the sanding down ;D ;D

Have a look

Good job on the spraying! Nice to see bikes restored after a crash.

Has the frame been straightened? It looks a 'bit' bend in the crash pictures. If i can be blund, the subframe looks a bit off on one of the pictures.

Sport bikes often have light aluminium frames, which bent/crack more easily then the old steel ones (i know of experience...)

Was a low speed tumble (Gat oor kop)
Took it in and they confirmed that the frame damage was on the sub frame only. New Sub frame from Yamaha and I'm happy.
They also looked for hairline cracks on the frame but nothing to report. :)

Thanks for the complements. Just a pity I'm still not 100% happy with the tank. It will come off again this weekend for a complete re-do. Some dust marks I don't like.
rest of the bike is 100% SMOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTHHHH. (I cannot let this go by) :-\
