Featured Project 916/955 Lands On Planet Noodle

Discussion in 'Builds & Projects' started by Noods, Jul 28, 2018.

  1. Been visiting my CJ
    (Daughter) and on my return had a consignment to collect from my workplace, Port of Fwlixstowe..

    Below is part of what was waiting for me..



    Along with its matching mono frame.. 12000 miles ( with full Docs etc) 1994 bike not been started in years ...

    After long discussions with my 2 expert mentors I decided the crazy 916 sps prices were too much for me and I’d never leave even a mint one alone anyway, so it was better to search for the parts to build MY dream 916..

    So, we’ve started...

    Me too, I couldn’t keep my detailing fingers off it for long...



    And after...


    Paint removed, then soda blasted...

    Engine plan is a full rebuild under supervision with 955 conversion..

    It’s going to be a long one... only buying parts approved by mentors..

  11. UPDATE.....

    Breaking news......... 8.30am, live from Noodle Towers, on a planet, Few have ever visited ...


    Blue cargo belt has safely been removed... All crew members, namely 1 (plus a few more friends in his head) are reported as being safe and relatively well...
    After rest, this daunting, challenging, possibly dangerous at times, exciting mission will continue..

    2 more cosmomechanics are due to visit with supplies in the near future.. These, as yet, unnamed and totally unprepared members, are expected to bring rare and highly expensive parts some made of precious materials to the table, namely sugar puffs, raspberry ripple ice cream and banana milkshakes...

    Update concluded...

    Cosmonaut Noodle, Bring it home productions, on a planet, a very, very, long way, away from my West Ham duvet.........

    Oh and little Ted....

  19. Why is it when you mention magnesium or titanium the tripled or quad ripples even....
    and if you put the 6 letter word Ducati if front of it, it tripled again...

    I’m sure if I dig down long enough I can find my own precious metals, like Ohlin and termiginnygoneee...
