Aprilia RS250 Simoncelli tribute

andysxv550, 10 July 2012 15:08

It's not quite finished yet but here's what I've been working on for the past couple of months. It started out as a fairly scruffy Aprilia RS250 which I stripped, cleaned, serviced, MoT'd etc. I added the RS body work, pipes and carbon bits from Jap4performance, and then set about painting it. I don't have a workshop so all this was done in the back ...

My turbocharged trike

Anonymous, 24 January 2012 18:48

Here's my trike, powered by a turbocharged Rewaco 1.6 Z-tec motor, producing 185bhp at the minute. I'm a paraplegic and I use it for rallys thoughout the year. I usually cover about 12/13k a year so does get used - not like some of these summertime bikers and their bikes! Towards the end of the year the motor will be getting more power. I'm ...

Matrix Streetfighter

Anonymous, 02 September 2010 10:16

I was speaking to Neevesy last year about my Ducati Streetfighter when he was testing his. It has gone through some changes since I last spoke to him. Basically I wanted something different so decided that if they made another Matrix film and used a Ducati, they should use a fighter. It's been sprayed Matrix green and had special Matrix stickers placed where the ...

Drag/Cafe racer rod

ronfairbrother, 01 August 2010 18:10

This started off life as a 2002 silver and chrome (yuch) V-Ros so I decided to mess about with it a little. I fancied something a bit different - a mix between a drag bike and cafe racer. The details are: Stock 2002 VRSCA frame (all unecessary lugs removed), motor and swingarm. All stripped and rebuilt with new parts and engineering.HD ...

My custom Bandit 1200

ron davies, 30 April 2010 16:02

This is my bike, a Suzuki Bandit 1200. I bought it off a mate three years ago and instantly went about changing it. The latest change is the paint job. I think it looks ok and it gets lots of admiring looks. The best parts about it, in my opinion, are the back end, which I chopped off, and the twin high level exhausts, which sound ...

We at the Zed Owners Club www.zedOC.co.uk were saddened to hear of Gavin's untimely death a few days ago, more info here http://www.riderforums.com/showthread.php?t=53644 ...

Had the suspension changed. Next I will be fitting a Mille swingarm. OZ wheels. Power commander. 54mm throttle bodies. There will be more getting done as time goes ...
