Unfortunately the Marchesinis went down the trash.

Yes I know !

I am waiting for that certain pair... yours are just out of reach for me at this time. I am focused on my product line up and for that most of my funds are tied up for now in building new molds.

Love the swing arm kit. If it wasn't as much hassle as it sounds like I would consider it myself. or maybe four a second rc project.

Sleep is for the weak, and rules are in place to keep honest people honest.

It was a lot of work. Mostly because I haven't found anyone who has done it before. So It was all worked out in my head. Now that someone has done it others have a somthing to go buy. It requires machining of the new swing arm. Custom made suspention plate brackets. Custon drag/lowering link. New exhaust fabbed. The exhaust is the only part I have left. And have to sub it out.

Bonus because its off a 2002 vfr800 I now have rear abs on the bike.

The suspention linkage plates cost my $40 materials and had them water jetted. Made somenwith grinder they worked but wernt all that pretty.

Next will be a 20mm wheel spacer and a 17x7 koning car rim.

Back from a crash.

I had an accident with my RC51 back in December that has had me layed up until last week. I hit some black ice at about 15 MPH as I was pulling away from a stop and it swapped ends and body slammed me. I got hurt a lot worse than the bike did. I had a broken pelvis and a couple of broken ribs. I had 28 screws and 3 plates inserted to repair me and I've been on crutches and a cane up until last week so I'm ready to get the bike repared now.

Here's a picture of the damage on the RC, which really isn't too bad. It broke the end off the clutch lever, broke the left handle bar weight, broke the left foot peg and the lug for the swingarm spool was broken off. The shift lever is bent but I should be able to straighten it with no problem and the left fairing is cracked where the stud for the crash bung was bent. The fairing will be easy to repair as well. The left hand muffler has some minor rash, but since the left and right mufflers are interchangable, I'll clean up the scratches at the rear and swap them between sides.

If the weather cooperates I should have it back on the street in a couple of weeks.

I can get you some rivets so you can swap the mufflers around
Also have spare muffler outers if you need them
