chop it off

März 28, 2010

the standard supersport tail is in my view far from supersport. so in order to make a standard ssie tail look really like „supersport“, there needs to be done some minor transformation…

a few months back i already had cut part of the tail. but i wasn’t satisfied with the results – especially since the desired rs 250 tail fairing didn’t properly fit on the shortened ssie frame. it then looked something like this:

i then decided to replace the entire backpart of the ssie frame with a 999 subframe – those things are hard to get for a reasonable price, sh*t!. but since good things come to those who wait, i go my share on ebay.com and today i finally managed to find the time (and the guts) to make that final procedure on my bikes tail. after first approaching the CrMo-steel with a metal handsaw i quickly discovered that heavier machinery was necessary to finish the job befor the season ends…nurse please hand me the angle grinder.

here’s the detail

clean cuts ain’t it :)

those holes will be filled with some genuine custom subframe holders, soon. so stay tuned…
