Re: Wheel colour

It is just paint. I won't be over doing it. Will be very careful!

Re: Wheel colour

Anyone got a picture of a wheel without discs so I can see what bits I need to rub down? Bearing bits are easy enough, but I currently don't have discs to check which bits I should do....

Re: flat tyres

Think I'm going to go for M7RR's once I finally get paid. Been 4 weeks since last pay day and still another 2 to go!!

Good job I don't have much more to do. Except brake discs, chain & sprockets, front fork overhaul and new rear shock.......

Re: Wheel colour

I did ask them to, however looks like they thought I just meant the thread for the disc bolts. They were done for free so I'm sure I can manage a bit of work to prepare them!

Bring out the dremmel, if only I hadn't recently broken it!

Re: Wheel colour

Good point about the gold. Turns out there was not enough gold leftover from previous jobs to to the wheels anyway. All the colours they did have I didn't fancy. So going for black with the rim red instead of using rim tape afterwards. Front isn't so bad, but rear is flaking off everytime you go nea...

Re: Last night's progress...

Blade front end would be first choice, but gotta keep costs down for now! So some elbow grease required!

Although, my wife has a new Fireblade. Wonder if she'd notice if I borrowed the front end......

Re: Last night's progress...

No idea what it felt like before! Was told it rode fine, however it then sat for years and there's no way you'd want to try riding it the state it was in when I got it!!

Re: Wheel colour

Had an ex World Supersport CBR600 track bike that was black with gold wheels when I got it. Quite liked that. Had thought of mad fluro colour but I'm aware that at some point I may want to sell it! Also, my work will probably use paint left over from another job, and none of the cars we do are fluor...

Wheel colour

So the wheels are off and will be getting painted at my work. The big dilemma however, what colour.....

The bike is black. My current thinking is gold, but I'm open to ideas.....

Re: Today's task - brakes

Looking much better now. Found the original little caps. My friend and I were both working on the bike when we stripped bits off so he must have removed them. Not putting original ones back in though. Still not sure I'll bother with new ones either. Calipers looking much better though! https://uploa...
