back in the shop

by

finally! after a long absence, i’m back in the shop with my „new“ project. i’ve been longing for this for quite a while now. last fall (or was it summer…) the 900 ssie kinda fell into my lap. i bought the bike from a german forum user. so the bike had to be imported and registered in switzerland – not a easy task which took some efforts and shrewdness. after all it was worth it though and i finally had the bike registered and got the vehicle registration certificate just a few weeks ago.

original look ssie

here are a few specific parameters about the bike:

– 2002 model with ohlins shock and 5-sprocket marchesini wheels
– high compression engine tune-up with double spark ignition system
– manifold preparation
– progressive fork springs
– TSS slippery clutch

my plans are to strip the baby down (maybe to its frame) and give her an new overall look. the super sport to me has always had a somewhat soft appearance so i think she could take a little aggressiveness. ARC used to do a pretty good job with that but unfortuanelly they have vanished from the surface of the planet.

so in the next few months i will try to feed the site and update you on the progress of transformation. and since i spend so much time waiting and doing adminstrative b.s. work for the authorities during the registration process, i also got to spend a lot of time in the internet and have already bought a lot of the nice goodies…
