Things ive had to do so far are:

- Set-up front end 10mm drop set bars etc
- Move water pump to correct place
- Re-seal front tyre as it was flat
- Remove - Straighten front fork leg as it was bent!!
- Make cooling system work, in there genius they used a bit of pipe on the bleed??
- Fix - make brackets for rear mud guard as it was all broken - hanging off
- Fit proper gearing. Chain/Sprocket
- Re-route throttle cable as it was chaffing on exhuast
- Adj, Throttle so it oppend fully
- Fix cracked seat unit
- Modify rad brackets
- New wheel bearings all-round
- Adj, brakes.
- Replace missing ech. end-can spring

I still have 2 rsr's which I am too fond of to sell even if I am unlikely to ride them again, not as nice to ride as a pasini I don't think but a nice solid stable feel to them.

I think even by todays standards they have excellent handling. They set new standards when they first arrived.

I've got one of them in my loft, it may come out over the winter. I'm quite interested to see how it feels compared to my DM and RR

Looks really GREAT!!!! People on here build some lovely looking bikes. I love looking at the before and after pics and also seeing the in between shots during the build! Rossco did his RR and ferrino always posts some great pics of all his awesome looking bikes. I just wish I had the money and patience to do such a good job on my bikes...

Nice work dude! We haven't seen one of these for a while, it's definitely worth the effort isn't it - the bike looks great ;) Careful not to scratch that nice paintwork at the track now

Looking good. Don't forget to put a shield for the water pump belt, otherwise your shoe will break it. It's also good to put a suitable screw on the clutch bell housing to support the foot peg from bending if and when you go down.

Looks sweet mate. Saw it on Ebay how much did it go for in the end?

It never did mate, no one was interested at 450. Thought that was cheap enough.

Looks great, did you have to do much to the engine?
How much are you looking for for it?

Cheers
