My 200 R1 Project

Here is a pic of my '00 R1. Right now I'm changing it into a naked/streetfighter bike. The bike has swing arm extension, lowered, '03 rear shock and some other goodies. The paint is BMW Interlagos blue.

no one. It's a carbonfiber overlay. I make custom carbonfiber and fiberglass parts. No sense in making a mold of a tank if i only make one tank for myself.

Went with my bike to a local custom car and bike show. Just finished it the day before








In the last pic the new overflow tank for the radiator is visible. When you take the fairings of an r1, there is an ugly plastic tank underneath. So i made one out of aluminum, cut the filler neck of the old one and epoxied it into the new tank, and wrapped it in carbonfiber.

On the left side by the radiator, i rerouted the wires to the inside, so they come out thorugh the middle of the frame by the steering neck. Then i modified the bracket for the horn and it now sits sideways between the radiator and frame.

So I decided to change the rear of the bike a bit this week. Took the muffler off and made a new one, now it's under the bike. Then i cut the subframe and welded a new cross bracket in and brought up the lower subrame rail. made a new tailsection in fiberglass, re using the undertail and the lights. I'm gonna make a different one later on, with LED lights, but for now this is not bad. Still trying to figure out what to use for mirrors though.

Changed the seat a bit. Little different shape and different mounting tabs. I also made a new front fender and brackets. Went old ,old schoool, with fender mounted license plate, like they had it way back in europe. Instead of licenseplate, I just use a carbonfiber plate with my shop name on it.
