An international motorcycle flavour at mono motorcycles this week.
We have been seeing red this week in the mono motorcycles workshop! The Aprilia RSV4 RR, Harley Davidson Superglide, Norton Commando & Honda CB600F all shone in their red liveries.
Monday morning bright & early we collected the Harley Davidson, as she was a non start. We welcomed her to the mono motorcycles workshop for some wiring configurations & tidy up & a general overview to ensure everything else was as it should be.
Once Daniel had assessed the wiring, he was able to wire up the front & rear lights. However, he did discover that the Harley was missing some of it’s wiring components, which we are uncertain if were worked on in her previous modifications (completed at a custom motorcycle house)
With a few parts now on order from Harley Davidson, our guest will be completed upon receipt of said items & on her way home.
The air was shattered on Monday by the Aprilia RSV4 RR which joined us for her first service.
Tuesday Morning the lovely Norton Commando which we worked on last year, joined us for an exhaust gasket to be fitted. Always a pleasure to welcome this iconic machine & one mans pride & joy, into the workshop.
The Victory 8 Ball motogadget install has entered it’s final stages.
Daniel, having fabricated a bracket to locate the m.unit blue motogadget system box, has spent time this week ensuring the remaining looms are easy to remove & will not interfere with each other.
Despite the motogadget having done away with most of the wiring, the Victory 8 Ball will still run three wiring looms. The three looms are: the engine management system loom, a cross over loom, (which gives power to the engine management loom) & the motogadget loom itself . This system is much more complex than the previous install, as the Victory is fuel injected.
As it was identified that the Victory would need two additional push buttons for the clutch & start (the ones already fitted didn’t have enough buttons) it was agreed with the customer that Daniel would drill out the handles bars & sink them directly into them.
With the dash & the clocks all now wired up & working, the final stages of the motogadget install can begin.
Daniel was out of the workshop on Thursday attending a training course at the TEXA Headquarters in Blackburn. Although Daniel is already trained & is very competent with the diagnostics software; it was an opportunity for him to engage with other technicians & ask more pertinent questions in a training environment.
Nathan continues to learn the ropes from his father Daniel & this week Nathan has started his own project.
The Gilera ICE may become Nathan’s own road bike. However, it will need an entire strip down & rebuilt to get it road worthy. Nathan began the project today, with a view to getting it fully rebuilt over the next two months.
Our events calendar continues this weekend with our Jamie’s Airbrushed Art Showcase, with Jamie Gladman form J.A.A Custom Paint showcasing his work at the workshop & being on hand to discuss your paintwork & bespoke artwork requirements.
Out very popular Breakfast Club begins again on Sunday 28th April, 8.30-11.30am. What a great opportunity to catch up with friends over a hearty breakfast, or drop in for a ‘pit stop’ on your journey.
