  • Lonny350`s RZ350

    Hello folk`s, thought I`d put this up on the `projects` thread. Some of you would have seen these pics before. I bought it originally as a commuter (cheap and on original bore with 16000k`s) and it deteriorated rapidly, as you can see. The intent is to rebuild it into a fun bike for twisties and track days i.e NOT a commuter . I gave it a rebore, new rings etc and carbon reeds and it ran pretty good. Braided lines helped it stop a bit better and rgv clocks that worked helped me know roughly what the revs, temp and speed were .
    Altogether it was a bit of a dog...to say the least.http://www.perthstreetbikes.com/foru...1&d=1248848173

    Gotta go for now.

      A couple pics before stripping it. It`s taking about 5 mins at a time to upload these photos..I must be doing something wrong!.

        The rearsets look good in black.

        she certainly needs some TLC

          resize the pics to 800x600 pixels in jpg / jpeg format

          the size needs to be <200kb or it wont allow the upload

          if the file size is still too big resize to 600 x 480

            Get a photobucket account or similar mate, it will make things easier.

              Here it is with less stuff on it. At a mate`s place coz I ain`t got a shed big enough.

              And here is a moment that I might regret. Seemed like a good idea at the time tho.

                  nothing wrong taking an angle grinder to the sub frame.. just get an R6 fender eliminator for it to meet the 45 degree fender rule

                  edit: i would have made the cut further up myself though, as a fitter once told me.. you can always take more off

                    If it's older than like 96 doesn't it pre-date the 45 degree bullshit?

                          Will be looking at a one off fibreglass seat/ ducktail unit similar to moto gp type but quite narrow. here`s some more picks with RS250 front and rear. Decided against RS swinger as wheelbase was too long. Went for FZR400 instead.

                              got a close up of the dogbone and knuckle setup on the bottom of the rear shock?

                              what have you done there?



                              note the relative angle between the dogbones, the vertical and the horizontal plane of the swingarm? your angle and mounting position are completely different to mine.

                              we tried to set rear sag on Nath's arrangement with the r1 shock, and it was a bit soft. someone should break out the slide rule and do some trig :p
