Here is a rather unusual project: A 535cc kitted RD350 engine in a sidecar. It's mental! We were asked to design and build the exhaust system. The engine is acutally the very one from the original Yamarilla bike. It's being used for hillclimbs.
One-off Specials Fabrication Projects
Here is a selection of various one-off specials projects we've undertaken over the years, ranging from building a set of expansion chambers for a tuned 2-stroke bike to putting different engines into frames, and one-off frame fabrication. Let us know if any of these inspire you create one for yourself.
This is RGV-250 with an RG500 engine, GSX-R swinging arm and front end. We built the entire bike from the frame up.
This is a standard RG500 frame/engine with a GSX-R swinging arm and front end. We now have converted quite a few of the GSX-R swinging arm for use in an RG500 frame and offer this as a standard product. The body work and tail unit is also from a GSX-R.
Here is the infamous Yamarilla built by the equally infamous 2-stroke tuner extraoridnaire, Stan Stephens. It's one of the very first 535cc kitted RD350 engine in an Aprilia RS-250 chassis. It was so successful in club racing, it was promptly banned! We designed and built the exhaust system.
This customer want to recreate the famous Suzuki 500GP bike. The major part of this project was the frame, a highly modified TLR frame to get the look as close as possible. We built the entire bike. Bodywork was original Suzuki GP.
Another popular engine transplant is a big bore RD350 engine into a 250 type chassis. This one is a 535cc kitted RD350 in an Yamaha TZR-250 3XV chassis.
A rather unique 2-stroke racing bike is the Konig. Originally developed in German, it uses a "flat four" engine layout. We were asked to design and build the exhaust system. We've since done literally every one of these in the UK. If you've seen these bikes at the Stafford bike show, you'll unknowingly seen our work.
This has become a fairly popular project with many cuistomers, that is putting a RG500 engine into a RGV250 chassis.
Yet another transplant of an RG500 engine. This time into an Aprilia RS-250 chassis. Again, we built the entire bike from the frame up, with an Aprilia Mille swinging arm and Ohlins front end. These 250 framed RG500 engine bike are truly a handful!
