    babu bajaR build

    Not sure where to put this DIY.
    Have started the baja headlight racks for you guys that were interested and have confirmed one. You can follow this thread for updates. There's one for Jaimie and mods, what about a 'follow' button to follow your fav build/threads?...

    I stuffed up (as usual) the steel order and got 16mm x 2mm thick instead of 1.6mm thick. Means it will make for a stronger rack but my life harder to make them!



    the template chipped and broke after i completed the first one and tried to remove the ring from the template, so had to make another template.









    2nd template, doubled up due to the thicker pipe.











    to make these things worth their weight in gold in 100yrs time, chopped up the template after the last ring so i don't have to make any more.. lol..









    still plenty of work to grind and smooth the welds...

    started the top mounts, forgot to take pics in between, was late... lol.. think my babuG build thread may have some pics, can't remember.







    up to making the hardest bit, which are the bottom mounts.... they need to be done during the day cos there's lots of cutting and grinding and i'm finding it hard to get monkey work in during the day...

    Looking good Babu, I assume by the volume you are looking to sell them? What kind of price are you going to put on them? I was keen to get one for my Trex, width between headlight brackets is currently 180mm - would that work? Cheers

    Hey Diggs, these are taken, made to order from my babuG build thread . They won't fit the Trex, they mount on baja or gorilla forks only.

    Thanks mate. .

    one is ready to go, guess US/Canada will go first due to shipping time, local guys will have a little longer wait..

    You've made me jealous. Now I wish I had have ordered one when they were on offer.

    Al, seen your skills mate, you can knock one up in no time! think there should be enough photos to show how i put one together with the limited tools i have.

    Thanks for the thread name change Dex, champion!

    Will be turning a 92R into a budget baja wannabe with a cheap j1 frame i scored off eBay recently. Should've called this a j1 build..or bug eyed j1...lol..

    Looking for some basic measurements of one of these if anyone's got one and can spare time to measure, otherwise I'll have to spend time scaling off pics.

    thanks hokoman, you're lucky you have an original... show us the bike when you're done.


    no takers on rear rack measurements so did a bit of scaling off pics, doesn't look like much but should be enough to get a pilot one going.

    pic for a bit of motivation to get me going... last build!

    nothing gets past dex!

    pic of part of the swing arm design for you dex... this one is not as fancy or wide as the previous, just an extension of a stock swing arm.
    Originally i was just going to just do the standard extension, cut and extend the middle section but then decided something a bit chunkier...

    1.jpg

    budget (not Matty's budget) build so hoping i don't mod it too much and to keep costs down.

    Got an early Christmas pressy today from France, a nice clean monkey zb/r shock.
    Been looking all over for a short shock for a while but couldn't find one and all that time the Dirty boys had one lying around! Must be Christmas cos they didn't want anything for it. ☺
    Bit of an incentive to finish off the swing arm now and post some pics for young dex ☺

    Nice... Didn't even think to look for zb ones until it was offered, was searching 220mm. Think i need matty's budget to buy these...

    It is an extension of stock as i needed to chop up an original, slight mod to the extended section....

    Done my last build matty, this is just a slight mod of a z50r....😉

    found the shortest shock i had lying around (pw80) and designed the mono mount based on it.
    20151122_220037s.JPG

    20151123_221907.jpg

    mounted it
    DPP_0001.jpg

    DPP_0002.JPG

    somehow Jd(france) saw it and said it looks shit so sent me a free monkeyR shock lol... said the monkeyR shocks are a bit soft for his liking but don't think i'll have a problem with that.
    the bracket then changed slightly, no longer adjustable. Shocks will sit more vertical and more hidden.
    the timber block was cut to width of mount to assist put the bracket in place for welding.

    Since I'm not continuing with this build (I think, probably will regret this..), I'm selling the motor intended for this build.
    New parts as specified, the Bore and Carb have a few hundred Kms on them.
    Parts costs me abit over $3k, Price is $2.6k + post, please PM.

    Engine specs: (links are for info and manufacturers specs)

    Bore : SP TAKEGAWA Super Head 4V+R SCUT106cc Big Bore Kit (https://japan.webike.net/products/9658840.html)
    Carb: MIKUNI VM26 Carburetor Kit (Super Head4V+R) (https://japan.webike.net/products/20020460.html)
    New Clutch: Kitaco Manual Clutch Kit (https://japan.webike.net/products/20524252.html)
    New Rotor: SP TAKEGAWA Super Street Outer Rotor (https://japan.webike.net/products/8492751.html)
    Stator cover: HONDA z50R (https://classichonda50saustralia.com...ank-cover.html)
    Crank: Honda CRF50
    Drive: Honda 4 speed
    Case: Honda 5Z0R
    New Gear Shifter: SP TAKEGAWA gear shifter (http://www.******.com.au/takegawa-ge...ter-z50-crf50/) ****=r.c.r.a.f.t without the dots.
    New Exhaust: CLIPPING POINT High Power Sports Exhaust with Baffle (https://japan.webike.net/products/21129685.html)

    The case is from a 6V Z50R and has been modified to accept a 12V stator cover for 12V electricals. If you want the honda 6V look say for a CT70, because it's running the smaller takegawa outer rotor you can fit 6V covers by grinding the inside of the 6V cover just a tad.
