Not really had a project of my own for years now, but following a call from a past customer about reviving his 748 back to service, I ended up buying it.... Back in 2007 I built this bike from the ground up for him. It's done about 4k miles since then and spent the last 5 years or under a cover... It should be a good base line to work from. It's a 2001 748 and got treated to a Sigma 853 big bore kit and bespoke FIM eprom, Ohlins rear shock, Marchi' 5 spoke wheels, MPL clutch parts, new calipers and discs and the frame/chassis parts powder coated satin black. Pretty much the "done thing" back then. The chassis got built with new bearings and fasteners throughout. The seat unit is kind of growing on me, but we'll see. I do like the colourway though with the white/black theme. The engine is my thing though... I love the 853 conversion and the FIM eprom works really well. So while she's never going to be a minter, she'll be a tidy little road tool and maybe see a track day or to. First up will come a strip down to see where we are and what needs doing. Aside from a good service and refresh, the forks are shot for a start so that's the first thing on the list. A stock set of Showa will be more than adequate and will get treated to new bushings, seals etc. and a K-Tech SSK20 piston kit. It's going to be a steady job to fit in around the workshop, but i'll keep snippets coming as things evolve.
