picture = 1000 words, etc.

Ya know since you've put a RC51 front end on your VFR I think its required that you put a VFR swing arm on your RC51. 

Wow, garage looks great, we are all jealous. Needs more bikes though.   Just put new rubber on the RC, will post a recent photo, but in the meantime, here's a photo--taken in January:

While looking through this thread, I couldn’t see any pics of the brake caliper nastiness that I cleaned out about a year ago. 

 

This is what 17 year old brake fluid does. 

 

And yes yes I did the entire rear brake and clutch systems as well.

Yeah, wasn’t my fault. Bought it like that. 

 

All good now!

More toys for the RC track weapon. 
 

Have been too busy rebuilding my garage at my new old house to do much riding or wrenching but I hope that’ll change soon!

Greetings vifferheads 

 

I’ve been absent awhile and buried up to my eyebrows in a total garage rebuild project. 
 

10 months and my largest and most ambitious, expensive project of my life. 
 

the end goal of course is fo have a nice place for the bikes to sleep, and of course wrench on them! 
 

things still need a little sorting, organizing, and moving things in, but we’re 99% of the way there now. 
 

so much so that it’s wrenching time now. 
 

since I’m going to a 2 day track event at Area 27 in May, I’d better get a move on. 
 

the NON VFR is getting a Penske shock, factorypro shift kit, new/used upper triple, swingarm spool lugs welded on, powdercoated swingarm, ceramic coated exhaust, and some basic maintenance, grease, fluids, etc.

You can tell its a new garage....there's a four wheeled vehicle still parked in it. Five bays at my house, only the wife's car inside, no room to even work on a motorcycle. Hope to get that all sorted this spring.

yes sir. New concrete floor and foundation, new doors, windows, wiring, insulation, paint, wall sheathing, lighting, heat, door openers, the works. 
 

and I did all the work myself save for the floor and the two overhead doors. 
 

the only thing that’s original are the studs, stucco and shingles! 
 

what kicked it off was the floor was absolutely shot and the garage had sunk about 4 inches. Water was running under the wall in spring.

I like the drain in floor.  Easy cleanup.
