Just picked this up from Worcester, on my way back to South Wales.

A little bit of a scruff but a cracking project.

Possibly a silly question, but if your van sped through a speed camera with the bike on the trailer, would the camera read both plates, and send a fine out to the owner of the bike as well? :lol:

Never been one to name my bikes but this one could be called Dog after seeing how ruff it is under everything. That's what you get for leaving a bike in a damp garage for 4 years and only running it up the lane once a week.

Problem I have is my garage is too small for all my stuff, hence my building a second one. Current one is 33x15 and contains 2 bikes and a 1973 bay window camper which is laid on its side.

Tell me about it , I've got three garages, but when you run your own business from there and also have gear for home improvement you sharp run out of space . It's also embarrassing the amount of s!$% I won't chuck out "just in case" :blush:

Exuptoy:

Same here , mine's an '06 1.9tdi and is just an on going project . Took a step backwards somewhat by virtue of the fact I had full service history when I got it , the last being a camchain kit replacement being carried out by a "reputable" Bosch service centre just before I bought it . Lo and behold though , the f!$%er let go after 20k miles and boy does it cause some carnage in those engines.
Lesson learnt though , I would never trust a service history again when it involves timing belts :angry::angry:

Sorry fella, thought you were on about the bike, the van is is finished, it's a 57 plate 1.9TDi PD which has been converted to a camper.

Working last night so thought I'd take advantage of a workshop full of equipment and some steel scrap.

I already had an m14x1.5 bolt here so knocked up a big eff off slide hammer.

It certainly made a dent in removing the rusted suspension sleeve, unfortunately it removed about 4 threads of sleeve at a time, so in the end I resorted to a 1mm slitting disc and a 115mm disc cutter!! At least I can now move forward with the repair.

Makes you wonder what else was swerved!

Also as there is 31k showing, the 24k should have had the suspension points sorted!

At least it'll now get done correctly.:blush:

As a long term proponent of the Angle grinder as a go-to tool I say well done. :lol: :lol:

Although, 'scuze my ignorance... I can't see what you had to destroy with the AG to get the suspension out.

Got a complete rear end from a member on another forum in which every bearing and sleeves had been replaced and transferred all the goodies on to mine.
Also swapped over the running strip as mine was in 2 pieces.
Most pleasing!

Started stripping the second arm and picked the best parts from both arms, coated it all with red rubber grease and reassembled it all after cutting off the chain. Also fitted the 44 tooth rear Renthal sprocket which came on the second arm.

/media/file/133572.aspx

/media/file/133579.aspx

Then I cut up the damaged hugger to try and salvage the chainguard which had 3 cracks. I cut these open with a slitting disc and chopped up an old plastic panel I had here to use it as a filling media for plastic welding following reading Binkies exploits welding his Viffer fairing.

Looks rough as f!$%.....

/media/file/133574.aspx

but it's solid and after running a flap disc across it I stuck some paint on the repair (it's under the chain guard strip so should be ok without filler.

/media/file/133575.aspx

This was the crap section I cut off....

/media/file/133576.aspx

and the final outcome (I still need a bracket to bolt to the arm after I've drilled out the snapped bolt).

/media/file/133577.aspx

....and this was the finish on the seat unit once I'd thrown the mop at it.

/media/file/133578.aspx

Quite pleased with that.:thumbup:

It's never pretty, but the more you practice the better you get.
I think the trick to a good solid weld is using the right filler medium. Everyone I know used to say use Zip Ties but that's like using Ally welding rods on steel.

Fitted my new DID chain but due to the plus 2 rear sprocket the chain is too short so I've had to order a DID extension kit so for now I've retrieved a link from the old one to fill the gap and joined it with 2 tie wraps (I don't think they'll last on the road though :smile: )

/media/file/133590.aspx

Next I turned my attention to making a stainless steel bracket to mount the chainguard, but only after drilling out the snapped bolt in the swingarm. Looks quite subtle I think.

/media/file/133594.aspx

Next was some cleaning and polishing of the footrest and healplate, then I removed the rear caliper which got stripped, cleaned, pistons out, polished on the drill press and coated with red rubber grease before reassembly and refitting.

/media/file/133591.aspx

Then I removed the master cylinder and pot, cleaned them and refitted them, just need to fill and bleed the rear before heading towards the front of the bike.

Cheers Mach.

Made some fake air vents for the seat unit. Carried out some plastic welding on a snapped tab before refitting the plastics also fitted my new gear lever rubber.

Then I bled the rear brake and polished the heelplate before cleaning the other side of the engine.

/media/file/133613.aspx

Then I did some more plastic welding and put some filler in the repair which needs finishing once dried.
