Ooops, how about now?
That's better! Those wheels look tremendous, a man after my own heart! Also replace bolts and fixings with quality even when they will never been seen, will be one of a kind completed.
@oldman Unfortunately, one of a kind, it will not be.
As said, these bikes are used for the Junior Moto GP racing, or were used rather (replaced with four strokes today).
So these bikes tend to get built to an exceptionally high standard. I don't have those sorts of deep pockets, but I will do my best where I can. It'll be SuperTeen Inspired for sure
I just need the right sized circlip for the front wheel then I can put the forks and swingarm on.
Hopefully next weekend.
A few little bits arrived for me today.
I got this exact disc on my DT. It was absolutely lovely, and was £60 cheaper than what I paid for it, so I jumped at the opportunity.
All fitted to the wheel using Titanium bolts.
Genuine handle bars and switch gear arrived. Plus Titanium wheel nuts and aluminium fork top.
Thinking of getting the handle bars painted, to contrast the white triple clamps. Then I can look to assemble it. Got some titanium handlebar bolts with these as well.
I've also redone the swingarm bolts with titanium, which was expensive. But it feels nice to chuck the money into this vehicle as it'll be a real nice sunny ride.
Although, I totalled the cost of the remaining parts, the price is eye watering. I think you could have bought two of these bikes brand new from Aprilia for the cost that this one is looking at. But of course, this will be far superior spec.

@calum What's up with the pics dude ??? I see no shiny new bits at all !!! Also have you updated the forum as well? There seems to be a few features missing sadly?
@ninja What features are missing?
No pics for me either?
@calum only a few emojis seem to be working
EDIT: nevermind, they are now
@oldman How odd, I'm trying to use Google to host my images. Seeing as they are such a massive company I thought I could rely on them for a reliable service. But they're "Share" feature shares an album not images.
I do try to see if I can see them in Private Browser mode and they work for me. But I came back to check and sure enough stop working.
How about now?
Can any of you upload pictures from your phone?
Works fine for me.
You have to give it a while. It uploads it to my server, which uploads it to imgur and then embeds the link. So just because it says 100 percent that just means you have uploaded it to my server

This appears when I press the image icon. No idea what to do really? I always have to upload to my computer and then do drag and drop
@irongamer727 That's to embed images.
You need to hit the little cloud icon.
It's all on here mate.
Literally called embedding images
@calum omg how foolish I've been! Never seen that icon before. Had to swipe literally 1 cm to the right and it popped up. Thx

@calum Pics are all visible now, that disc looks awesome, do they do a matching one for the rear?
Also some of the emojis were missing and y'all know I do love my emoji's
But I see you have gone for a different much simpler set now - so it's all good!!!
@ninja It's always the emojis lol. I will get a wavvy rear disc for the rear but it won't be two tone.
I am thinking next month, build the engine, then March get back to the frame.
