Now turn has come for the bars and of course we had to make your own. The model became a traditional Clubman style bar, now with a custom touch a'la UCC.

Getting the feel of it.

When you build a bike from Sweden, you just have to work with Öhlins!
They've helped us to develop a new prototype for R Ninet and of course it will be in production soon, actually already in a couple of weeks!

When we were at it, the steering damper just had to be changed as well. It became an Öhlins 2.1.

Checking the lines.
The week ends with a count down clock on the start page... not stressing at all ;)

Now its time to start forming the rear end . It's hammered out in a 1/16" aluminum plate around a hammer form.

Now the edges are shrinked with the Eckold.




Taking shape ...

The "English Wheel" are perfect when forming the bottom part.

The tank is cut down for better proportions.

We have reshaped the tank. To line up with the seat and to make it look smaller.

There will be a lot of welding and cutting before this is done.

So we have to build a frame jig, after that it's just some cutting ande welding and its done.
