Figured I'd start a new thread for the final assembly of this car.
Picked up the frame, panels, and suspension parts from powder coat last friday. Picking up the zinc plated parts tomorrow. All flat black and chrome powder coat on this one.
Assembly should go quick once I have the zinc parts.

It's a race to the finish. I will not have much time to work on mine in the next week, so you'll likely complete yours first. It's starting to look like the blaster/painter guy is going to want a couple weeks to do his thing, so I may be stripping and roller painting in my garage like I was planning to originally. The flat black on yours looks sharp. [smilie=ext_beer2.g:

Got the bonnet from The Edge.
It was used on my design because the first prototype (front end) was designed to replace the Piranha front end.

Rear going together too. Had some of the parts black zinc plated. Really like how the black zinc looks. The bead blasted parts (in black zinc) match the flat black powder perfectly.

I've said it in the past,steering wheel is not up to par with the rest of the car.Just my opinion,but the rest is so nice!The wheel just doesnt fit.

You DO know those are the colors my buggy is going to be right?
If I ever take it apart for sand blasting. I'll prolly drive it really well this summer and break it down in the fall. Perhaps thanksgiving would be a good goal to have I done by. Belly full of turkey followed by nice autum ride down a road with lots of leaves on it for me to go whooshing thru like I'm on my way back to the Bat cave.
So this weekend I got one Hell of a kitchen pass. I'm gonna owe her big. I get to go out of town for Friday night Saturday night and come home Sunday afternoon. Me and my brother in law Eddie are finally takIng my buggy to my Parents property up near Lake Texhomawe have just under 200 acres up there. There's a few dirt roads one of which is over a mile long.
I'll have both GoPros running. Installing über Ghey wing for sarcasm's sake.:D

Are you going to allow this one to be beat on a bit more than your normal, Rick? You seemed interested in some track usage after Livewire's test and tune.

Probably not. I need to build one for beating on.

I really like those pedal boxes. Are they pretty specific to your chassis ? I know anything can be made to fit just about anywhere, just wondering how "universal" they are if at all. Thanks

RickS.
06-22-2012, 08:55 PM
Is there such a thing ss a universal pedal box?
I would think that any pedal box would require some sort of custom mount.
Mine are no more or less universal than any of the others out there.

Cleaned up the motor last night. It's ready to drop back in this weekend.
I purchased the wrecked bike at least 5 years ago. It was very clean with 2648 miles. Could have easily been repaired and put back on the road.
The wheels were bent and plastics were cracked. It was also missing a turn signal and had rash on the exhaust.

Zinc only adds a couple thou. in thickness.
I mainly zinc the axle components and parts where I don't want the powder coat thickness.

Looks like fun. I'm a little bit behind you. I started routing and finalizing the wiring harness last night. I need to adapt the clutch switch, headlights, brake light switch, horn, brake light, fan, coolant temp and probably the rectifier depending on mounting. The speed sensor on my GSXR750 harness is a little tight, but I can fix that with a box cutter and some electrical tape.

On bead blasted parts it looks just like the flat black powder coat. Same texture too.
On machined surfaces it comes out shiny.

That's way too neat Rick.

What's the pull button for in the lower right...

You're running throttle bodies and injectors, so it's not a choke......is it a parachute release?

They call it a choke, but actually it's just a high idle on the fuel injected bikes.

Got it running tonight. Everything working as it should. No error codes showing on the gauge cluster.
Had weak spark on the forward cylinder. Replaced the plug and all was good. Injectors may have been a little dirty too. Motor's been sitting in my garage since 05. Smoothed out real nice after a few minutes.
This motor had very low miles. Not even broken in yet. Love the sound.

Got it running tonight. Everything working as it should. No error codes showing on the gauge cluster.
Had weak spark on the forward cylinder. Replaced the plug and all was good. Injectors may have been a little dirty too. Motor's been sitting in my garage since 05. Smoothed out real nice after a few minutes.
This motor had very low miles. Not even broken in yet. Love the sound.
Check it out.

I finally finished this car up today. Took it out for a couple of short runs.
Wasn't sure of the power at first. Feels quite different than the GSXR's power band.
This thing has a steady pull to it. Turns very sharp, even on pavement with very little push.
Rear tires are not as wide as ony other car. Planning to test at SL in 2 weeks.
I'll be bringing up both cars.

I'm building 1 more AR51 first. I will probably start on the 2 seat design this winter though.

Very nice Rick. You really have the AR51 design worked out to a high level.

Thanks guys.
Working the bugs out was my goal on this car from the start.
Main changes on this car were the upgrade from 944 to 930 cv's.
Use of Intrepid hubs and 930 microstubs on the rear.
Sealed ball bearing steering column mounts.
And the new spool with enclosed chain tensioner design.
This car can take a beating too.

You can count on me to be one of the first to purchase 2 seater plans. My wife loves the look which makes it so much easier to spend the cash. I won't tell her the level of performance until AFTER I have her harness pulled tight and my foots burried knee deep in the go pedal! Thanks Rick :D

Rick, I should have let you drive my gsxr750 AR51 in Michigan. The rears definitely spin easier with the 12x8 wheels. Your 12x9s and tires on your blue car are quite a bit wider. The RC51 1000cc V-twin probably breaks them loose for those quick turns too. Everybody who has driven my blue car loves drifting around and doing donuts in it.
