    I striped the bike down to parts and started to make the transformation into a cheap, fun and friendly bike to use every day!Raptor 1000 Caferacer project-20150814_204006.jpg

    I purchased a Aprilia swingarm to make the bike nicer looking and it's also a good way to take of some un sprunged weight. Next thing I did was to paint the Chasis canary yellow (as I live at the island ).
    And then it's was time to start and to put together this little puzzle and to runn around the local junk yards serching for parts.

    The boken beguine to look like a bike again!
    I swapped the poor oem rear shocker for a R1 unit witch was easy to adapt.

    It's a wonder you were able to find a Raptor on an island.

    Apparently, the islands are more populated than I realized.

    Looking forward to your creation.

    The motorbike GP is the second most watched sport on TV in Spain after football (Soccer)
    witch is quite normal having the world champions in Al three clases.
    This summer we made a the anual biker meeting driving around the island and we counted with 1230 bikes on it.
    The island is small but full of motorsport crazy people and I'm one of them
    I use to race with cars at the local track and around Europe Raptor 1000 Caferacer project-05.jpg20141020_200728.jpg

    As I had an workshop that made bodyworks for race cars in composite I will design an new gas tank for the bike as the oem one is not a look that I like.
    I have several ideas about the look I want so as soon I make up my mind and have time I start with that.

    Yes the bike proyect is going on but a little to slow to be honest!
    I have my mother moving to the island and I'm just running around with all that mess
    I'm just finishing to make the rear covers and the registration plate suport
