Dave, our customer bought this as a part done Scrambler, but when he got to know it, decided it needed the SRC treatment and personalised to his own tastes.
Pretty good tastes I might add!
The frame and swinging arm had been powdercoated and the spoked wheels had been refurbed so they were good to go. Everything else, however, was fair game.
The top end of the engine came off for inspection and new piston rings, stainless pushrod tubes and some black detailing along with some retro Rocker Covers were fitted.
The clutch and gearbox were good to go but the wiring loom had to go. As a Motogadget electronics kit was to be installed, then a new, much smaller and lighter, bespoke wiring loom was made to include a lightweight Lithium Iron battery, LED indicators and tail light, a large headlamp with stone guard, Digital electronic ignition, a lighter, lower geared and more powerful starter motor and topped off with a sleek top engine cover including cooling vents.
The original carbs were retained, but were re-jetted, remote choke pulls fitted and a set of cone filters.
The forks and brakes needed a re-furb so a floating EBC disc and matching pads went on after a caliper rebuild and new stainless hose and fittings. New remote reservoir, fully adjustable shocks keep everything in line and comfortable.
New Renthal 'Fat bars' and billet risers enhanced the riding position as well as looking good, and the new Acewell speedo/tacho combo gauge gives all the info needed.
A new SRC subframe and seat were required and brushed alloy fenders a must have.
The stainless headers and silencers were given the satin look and the tank finished off with an SRC billet alloy cap.
It's a fun ride and as Dave is local, I'm sure we'll be seeing "Impure" at some of the bike events and whizzing around the Dorset back roads.
