I've seen this mock up image several times, and I would still love a full size poster of it .......

If only there was a larger, higher rez, image of it, I could get it made into a poster. It'd look great in my home office.

Seat pan ......

Was this an RD07 seat pan, or RD04? Reason I ask, is that both Steve and Alain have RD07s, whereas, Ladder's bike has RD04 plastics.

Reason I'm saying this, is that I have an extra RD04 seat pan .......

Show me the money ........

Or at least tell me where I can find it .......

I swear .... I wish I could win the lottery. With everything I want to do to my RD04, the cost would definitely not be in the "chump change" category.

Well the time has come for me to continue working on my 04. I've finished up on my LC4, so now it's time to spend more money on yet another bike.

I've posted this all up before, but I'm being lazy and don't want to search through the pages.

I've got the infamous bar wobble, as I've mentioned before, and both Ladder and Storm have replied to that. I understand, that I have notches (or something to that affect) where the bar stem?, I'm assuming, wants to rest naturally. I want to get rid of the bar wobble.

So, 1. - what all do I need (starting small) to fix this issue.

2.) I've talked with Storm about this in the past, but I want to beef up my front brakes. Wrryder, when handling my bike, basically stated, Ummmm, yeah - you really don't have any front braking power.

So what do I need to beef up my front brakes. I know Jim and Storm have a completely different brake lever / caliper setup, but if I stick with the original OEM stuff, what should I get to beef them up.

I probably should bleed them, as they haven't been bled since I got the bike. Which the front brakes, when I picked up the bike at Jim's house, had to be realllllllllllllllllly bled for them to even grab and stick.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Nice ...... but you can see at that size the pixelation is degraded. Like, under "I Am Legend" the lettering is blurry. And that's the problem with enlarging a jpg that isn't a mondo huge high rez image.

But thanks again ........

Show me the money - Part 2

I just thought of this ......

I have a complete set of extra RD04 plastics, and tank ...... I think the only think I'm missing is the front fender ...... yup, just checked ... no front fender.

I also have an RD04 rear sub frame ......

I'll take pics of it all later this afternoon, but I'm thinking, if anyone here in the U.S. would like to purchase these, and turn their TA into an AT (basically) that would in fact provide me with cash to put towards my AT.

Like I said, I'll take pics later this afternoon, and post them up ......
