This bike was red when new ,but it was taken apart for parts years ago (not by me)
Now i want to rebuild it with al new parts i collected in al those years
And it happened to be i had a nos fairingset in red so i want to make it red again
I was lucky aswell as i had a fairing set with about 200 miles on it tucked away for long long time before i put it to use..😁

Oke change of planes.

As i was not happy with the painter for the frame i went to look for another painter.
But i was Lucky to vind a NOS kr1s frame so i wil be going to use that instead.

As soon the frame wil arrive i wil post a picture and start the build

Jarno,

Did your NOS frame come with a chassis number, or just a blank space for you to stamp your own number?

Will you be painting the NOS frame, or just using it as it is?

Regards,
James

Hello James,

The frame has no number .

I will leave it as is , so no repaint.

we've discussed this before.

you can never ever buy a numbered frame, you always have to put your frame number in the new frame. after all, you only buy a new frame because your old one is no longer useable.
if you could buy a numbered frame, theft would be too easy.
My ultimate goal is to die young as late as possible !
