Thanks!

should be right about 120hp which is healthy for a 24 year old bike

weight will be done for sure but i can tell you it is light

Got to thinking(LOL i know) and i am not sure how the weight thing will pan out really. I have trimmed huge weight off some areas but honestly i have added some things to make the bike better that MAY have also added weight in some places. All in all it will be one of the lightest 30's but most off all i wanted upgrades too

To me it's not really a RC30 anymore, it a MRGRN30, but if that's what you wanted "good on ya".

I did not accidentally change everything on the bike Jay

My point was not to have a red, white and blue RC30 table bike and the purists i am sure are throwing up, Oh well.

I wanted to transform and improve and update the bike a bit. I am hoping when complete it will make some bike mags as a real unique and cool ride i am sure we have all seen a red, white, and blue RC30 before.

New dash will be cool too

Working now on the solid of the new swingarm i will post that for show show. I am going to make a new hugger for the new arm and there will be a internal channel for the brake line. Tons more detailed pics will follow but i still have a bunch more parts to install and work to be done

Not for that bike. The bike is not even together the exhaust is off the other side as the bodywork was just installed for pics of the silver base and the purple and black still have to be shot and then the bike will be put together. The OEM shock is held by a nifty aluminum holder on the subframe and i have this to work with

My RC30 build second pic down

I am not sure where it will end up but i have a Ti spring to go on the shock and i want it rebuilt so i will have to sort that out later but most likely off the back of the exhaust hanger when i somehow sort that out too as the OEM subframe has one welded on and now i have nada

Going to go with 10-20mm longer for better straight line stability and for better tire clearance in the cut out. I am also going to TRY to get the brake line to go though the arm and make the shap on the outside a bit more refined and modern. I have a sketch of a screwed on machined delrin swingarm slider to go on the outside face too, we'll have to see yet.

going to have to make a new hugger from scratch i guess as well

hope to have it back within a month or so then i can tear it apart somewhat and tackle the other stuff i have planned
