Default NC29 Project

It all started the day I came off my NC30........

Eventually I managed to get my paws on this NC29, which apparently was previously looked after......

Anyhoo, When I started stripping, the more I stripped, the more I had to fork out.....

-Stripped the fairings, the Air ducts were cracked and fibreglassed on the inside...it woulda been somewhat okay if they were done properly...
- Front forks were leaking badly
- Front brakes werent very effective as the forks were leaking onto the brake pads
-The bolt that needs to be removed to get the brake pads out was stripped so I cant get the pads off
- Rear Caliper Ceased, so it needed a bit of elbow grease coming off.
- Subframe was slightly rusted, I removed that and will be prepped for some paint.
- Brake fluid Resevoir leaking
- Accelerator cable snapped
- Screen Cracked
- Kick stand bent
- Clutch cable from an NC23, so it's slightly longer.

Looks like I have my work cut out for me.

Not as clean as I wanted it, but okay for now until I have more time.
Rear axle needs to be changed as the bolt and nut on either side is stripped

Just got a call to say that the forks are bent and the previous owner was a Retard as the sliders are more useful ornaments now EPIC FAIL......managed to get my hands on NC23 Hurricane sliders, and they look to be identical......the helpful gentlemen at the local bike shop is busy servicing them, replacing seals, oil etc.......

Upon further inspection after cleaning up the frame....I noticed that on the CDI it says Power Sports? Anyone know if this is maybe a after market CDI? Never heard of it, and by the looks of it neither has google



Powersport is an aftermarket unit (Shadow)
