I had an old F2 that's been sitting around for awhile and I decided to finally work on it and get it all disassembled. Anyone else have project pictures like this? Oh and incase you're wondering, my goal is to build a stripped down, cafe racer style bike that's generally as dangerous and fun as possible.

It's a decent suit, it's my first one so I can't really compare it to anything, in general overall it's a decent fit. I'm 6'2" about 180lbs and it's a size 44. Really the only complaint I have about the suit is it seems tight through the thighs, and I don't think I have big legs at all. A 46 would probably be a better fit and allow room for a back protector, it's hard to size leathers though being tall and skinny.


I'll have some more pictures when I get some actual work done on it. I bought a couple parts for it this week, including some supermoto wheels, aluminum cafe racer style seatpan/tail, and an F4 rear shock.

Here's some pics from today, got the new wheels mocked up and the frame cleaned up a bit. Front wheel turned out to be the same size axle so it will just need spacers, but the rear wheel uses a 25mm axle and the rear sprocket is going to need some shimming to get it spaced out correctly.

Haha someone finally noticed.

To add on to fitting the rear wheel, I don't really want to spend the money, but I might end up just getting a supermoto cush drive hub and relacing the wheels to that.

What motor are you going to use, 600 or 900?

I'm planning on sticking with the 600, it was actually in really good shape when I took it apart. I'll throw a bigger rear sprocket on since top end speed won't be as important since it's gonna be naked.
