Hey all

so ive had the rx50 93 for few weeks now and been trying to decide what to do so here is the story so far

found her on gumtree guy wanted £200 for it and only posted one pic what is this one http://i1334.photobucket.com/albums/w653/zav96/1D57836A-4C9D-431C-B265-85860F404B87_zpseeewiumd.jpg

Looks like crap yes well I honestly only wanted crank cases for the rs but I got in touch and guy said I could come down and see it so after 20 min drive and dropping him from £200 to £50 I had a van full

So when we got home I started looking at what I had just brought

Here is some pics

27,000kmh not bad to say its 22 years old my 2004 has 29,000 kmh

from firsts looks nothing was worth saving except the crank cases

both wheels seized and missing spokes
brake disks rusted way too far
frame rusted way too much no holes tho
cranks full of water and fully rusted but still moves freely ahaa
front forks are in better nick than my 2004 tho
rear shock dead
swinging arm rusted too much
have all fairings even the rare bits
no air box just lid
full wiring loom
no battery
no cables at all
21mm carb
alloy 50cc kit looked ported but was dead so sent off to be checked
gearbox moves freely and works fine
120 kmh clocks ( quiet rare on a English Rx )
full v5 only 6 owners and tax disk from 2000 what makes me think it hasn't been on road since then
no indicators
gianelli exhaust
very rare single seat with glove box (official aprilia part but never seen in uk never)
And much much more

I will post a lot more pics in bit as still uploading to photo bucket

ideas are

full sand blast of frame and plasidip in silver
my06 swinging arm
my06 wheels and brakes with stainless steel brake lines
engine out of my Rx with a new tp pink kit or airsal 80
19.5 polini carb and air box filter
tecnigas exhaust
silver or orange fairings
2 batteries
rgb angle eyes in headlight with 3mm thick Perspex insted of normal palstic lens as that's been melted
Single projector with fitted motors so can be used as high and low beam (May have hid kit)
one off alloy tail tidy to move the number plate up as high as it can but still be legal
one off led rear light and brake light fitted under the tail but a one strip on top of number plate to keep legal
one off led indicators hidden away so can not be seen unless on

now the Maybe list
my06 front forks
my06 rear shock
ktm sx125 plastics
twin exhaust

As you can see I've started the wheel conversion but the tyres are too big for the rear so that's why thinking converting swing arm and forks to my06 so they fit nicely but not sure yet

and here's pics of main bits not on bike
