 Post subject: "Naked" donor bike project / GONE........
PostPosted: Sun Dec 11, 2011 12:14 pm 
So in my "Fairly Orange" build thread i have the pics up of my complete tear down of my donor bike. Well that gy6 swap has been put on hold for now. Beacause i wanted to do something with the bare frame of the donor bike. so i have some parts left from the old stuff and some new stuff ordered. i plan on making this a very cheap and quick build but it will be a stripped down, cafe racer inspired, gy6 bike! Named "Naked" because of the lack of any Body panels lol. So we will see how it turns out.


Image
The inspiration for this project. jsut want to build a stripped down bike that can be a lot of fun. To get an idea of the "Fun" im talking about you can watch the vid of this SICK cafe racer from ROland Sands in action by going to youtube and typing in "roland sands cafe racer" and wathc the old style looking vid of this bike and another getting down!!! :banger:

Image
Image
Image

This is the bare frame im starting with. lots of mods to come! already started doing a bunch this weekedn so update with lots of new pics middle of this week!

Thanks for viewing my build threads as always. your guys support helps a lot with the projects! :banger:
:DomoRuck

It's amazing how much weight you can cut of a stocker
JFYI Mine goes 78kg all up, which is less than a Ruck

Okay as i said here is a little update. All tolled about 5 hours worth of work. the whole front part of the frame has been de-tabbed and every unessacry part removed and then it was painted gloss black. Will be moving on to detabbing the rear section after i get some more parts that im waiting on.


Image
The tool of the trade and the victim :twisted:

Image
Frontend mounted and fenders removed all bolts changed to stainless allen heads. headlights mounted up, and igntion switch mounted up, agian all with stainless allen head bolts.
Image

Image
Started cuttin the little center piece off and as you can see i have the tab on the left side cut off already, the one on the right is next!

Image
There we go all ground off and smoothed.

Image
took some time to make a little swithc bracket. this switch will turn on my taillight and headlights.

Image
Image
all smoothed up

Image
The bars i will be using
Image
Had to cut the little center bar part out, smooth them, and then paint them, so i can flip the bars over and mount them "Cafe Style".
Image
Just set the bars on the bike before i cut them up to see. so little teaser of close to how they will mounted. also had the little throttle tube stuck on the bars at this point and time

Image
throttle tube removed from bars and cleaned and also in pic is my new throttle cable housing. now just gotta get some grips ordered. Battlescooter here i come lol!

Image
Image
processes of more cutting and smoothing of ugly needless factory parts

Image
Image
Image
Image
Finally done with all the cutting and grinding and here is the finished product all smoothed out tube painted gloss black. Simple and lightweight :banger:

Image
Image
This is just the pointless junk that was welded to the bare frame that i was able to remove. this stuff along with the material i grinded off prolly between 10 or 15 lbs. All the other junk like plastics and all th other pointless factory stuff removed who knows how much weight has been shaved off!!! a lot that is for sure. :banger:
Power to weight ratio FTW :banger:

Image
This is the very rear section of the frame. Im waiting till i get my seat mounted but i think after it is mounted i can cut six inches off the rear frame of unneded metal. so that will be even more weight off. More updates about this particular topic later tho after i get my seat.

I have pegs and a factory right side motor mount should be here by monday. My girlfreind is buying me a brand new gy6 motor for christmas to put on this bike so ill be using the stock twin shock setup that i have leftover from the original gy6 that came in this donor bike that is now destined for my other ruckus. :twisted:

Lots going on more updates soon!

Mine tops out just below 60mph, but I am a heavyweight... :cry: .
No engine mods at all, just a change of exhaust to make it sound better.

I like to cruise low and slow, :whore:

If any one else has any donor bike projects of their own feel free to post a couple pics of it in this thread i would like to see them :banger:

well i was considering using only one shock and ditching the whole side setup BUT i have seen a lot of cases end up getting cracked from running that way and this one i will be beating on, jumping it and what not so im doing it for the comfort and to make it more solid. so i try to save the weight in other areas. dont want the quality chinese metal frame to crack apart on me lol!

my gy6 ruck when its done will have a single sided shock tho and no right motor plate.
