A quick update on the start of my project….
The VOR was running on Excell offroad rims. So I got a good deal on some BEHR Motard Rims. The rear rim fitted 100%, the front wheel however did not fit so good. I needed new spacers, Shaft and bearings. Now, I am an engineer by trade, so if I can make a part instead of buying one, that is what I will do…. I drew up my parts list on CAD, and sent it of to be machined. Should be receiving it back within the next couple of days. Just for info, I had it made for 1/3 of the price what a new parts would have costed me… (Will post pics soon)
When I get the shaft and spacers back, I will have to check for correct for of the caliper, as I would have to make a spacer for that as well to accommodate the larger brake disk.
When I am 100% confident about the fitment of these rims, I will start the major stripdown. Below is a summary of what I am planning to do to the Bike.
Silver annodizing (maybe powder coat if I can get a nice shine from it)
As it is aluminuim, Just requires a thorough flat and polish.
Currently chrome, Just need a good poilish as the chrome is still in good condition, no n scratches whatsoever. I am also thinking of powder coating the outer rims black and keeping the spokes chrome. Will need to powder coat the hub black too.
I am busy designing a custom decal set for my bike, Will post pictures. However, I still need to get a motard from fender and a decent looking headlight.
