It gets serious...

The tear down is complete. It took about 4 hours from start to finish, and was actually way easier than I anticipated. I still have a few things to sort out before I take parts in for powder-coating, but if things keep moving at this pace, I should have the bike done in a few weeks. I still need to order tires and a new battery, and I still need to sort out how I am going to hide the new battery and associated wiring.

This is the pile of parts that needs to go to the powder coater.
Here's a shot of the new swing arm next to the original.
The new swing arm does not have grease fittings, which kinda sucks. Oh well.
So now I need to figure out how to get the rubber off the wheels, and I need to get the parts ready for the powder-coater. I have to cut tabs off that will not be used, and take a few things apart further, but I should be able to get the stuff out the door this week!

  1. Love the detail of this build. What is the book you were referring to in the strip down video?
