I mean let's face it... you are the only bloke I know who would preface the following paragraph with the words "quite simple";

After getting the XR stem pressed out, and with the suggestion of Terry - SOHC Forum, extended the shaft 20mm to align the steering head bearing surfaces.

Process was quite simple, part the shaft in the lathe, face the edges, fabricate a spacer which would be pressed into the shaft, took 6 ton of pressure, machine a groove, then weld and machine down to 25mm OD.

I ordered some Taper roller bearing kit from a UK which should be here in a few days. The bottom bearing has an inside diameter of 30mm, the stem is 26mm. I will make a sleeved spacer to take up the 2mm ID and locate the bearing in the correct placement.

Your ingenuity constantly impresses me Pezz... just think of my "ribbings" as badges of honour... Gee... next to McFear, you must be the most decorated OzADV soldier we got! I guess someone had to take the heat off OldDog didn't they... although, when I think about it... in the outback "combined" event (maniac mechanic projects AND stacks), I still think that Old Dog has still got the wood on both you and young McFear combined!

Well better get back to it. That's our Pezz!
Not to leave my iDIOlitimate son out of the picture... I must say that it is pretty hard to reconcile those last two RZ350 photo's as motorcycles of the same make and model isn't it? The black and silver one is billiard room porn for sure...!



tREV's looks like something he'd brung home from kindie and mum put a fridge magnet on...

Now Troy,

I have a feeling that maybe we could build a safari bike for you

Its a 660cc jobbie

We could get a hat passed around and Advrider Oz could be your sponsors.

An RZ250 with one of these slapped on top, tREV has the suspension under development . . .



More info here.

I saw Paul Wrights efforts to pilot something along those lines in the Suffari back in 1990...(CR 250 frame, suspension and RZ 350 donk)...

... Ummmm... fanks, but no-fanks!

Hi pezz, I have all the RGV parts you need for this project. They will be up for sale at the 'Swap Meet in Maryborough 7th March' http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ight=swap+meet

PM me with what you want.

I've been inspired by this thread. Last week I 'won' a GSX650F, repairable write-off. The project is very long term. The build thread will start later.

With the bike stripped down, I'm wondering what the hell I've got myself in for!

Well there was a little progress this weekend with the bottom end back together, need to get the rest of it completed as I am running out of time.


I was standing looking at the bare cases and wondering how this all came apart? It was a little daunting, but I took a lot of pictures and used the spare parts book and took little steps. It is a straight forward process, the gearbox just fell in, well sorta.


Sorry about the pictures, taken with the iPhone as I forgot the camera

Thanks Matty, glad you have registered.

The Hand Cycle is a fitness thing for me. Not that Im in training for Dakar

My bike is in SO many bits, but it is close to going together on many fronts.

The forks need a spacer the be machined to carry the bottom steering head bearing, once that is on the headlight and instruments bars controls.

The swing arm will be extended this weekend, which will be great.

then once that has been reinstalled, put the motor back in and then lift the back end to get the correct steering head angle. Then the top shock mounts and seat sub frame need to be built and attached.

As OldDog kindly reminds us we only have 31 days

Question for you Pezz,
how many people do you think would be building 'Adventure' type rigs out of 'roadies' due to being short arses like myself?
Or are they just up for a challenge [like me]

Gee . . . . . . tough one there.

Quite a number being built for various reasons. Another constraints come in here too. Like $$$

The questions you need to ask are;
What do you want to ride over and how fast?
How much gear you want to carry and how much fuel will you need?

Ted Simon rode an old Triumph around the world. He had to ride it accordingly.

I reckon you need to work out how much suspension travel you need at each end. 100 - 200 - 300mm? then work out the height you behind needs to be located above the ground. then work from there.

Below is a bike built by Paul Rooney. Is a R100 with a R65 seat unit and even the seat unit was lowered for a vertically challenged rider. I reckon its one of the nicest looking old airheads around. Its still on the road.

That's a nice looking unit, I like the idea and thought put into it,
Probably stick with what I know and like best, maybe down the track?
Thanks for the reply, gotta catch up with you one day,
