    I know someone who is making an RGV500 replica. Not just an RG500 in a RGV frame, but just the cases of an RG, dry clutch, TZ cranks I think, RGB gearbox, 4 YZ125 barrels & his own home made Shwantz replica frame. Mind boggling. Hope he finishes it. Looks very professional & littered with trick bits.

    Always thought a detuned NSR500V twin would be the business as a roadbike. They used to go well at Monaco.

    610cc 2 stroke kit?! Tell me more

    I have a fairly complete RG150 without a motor, 100hp on skinny tyres sounds like fun...

    Nice looking bike, I'll be watching this thread

    this is gunna be good...
    And I to my motorcycle parked like the soul of the junkyard. Restored, a bicycle fleshed with power, and tore off. Up Highway 106 continually drunk on the wind in my mouth. Wringing the handlebar for speed, wild to be wreckage forever.

    I don't think you'd be able to control it Daniel.

    The current 125 GP bikes are putting out about 55hp, 31Nm torque, in a bike weighing about 80kilos. The twin-spar chassis is made of aluminium, suspension is hlins front and rear, brakes are by Brembo, wheels are lightweight Marchesini units and the gearbox is a six-speed unit. Top speed is approximately 220km/hr.

    You want to put nearly TWICE that much power into an RG150, even if you are weighing in at approximately 130kgs?

    Okay in a straight line I suppose... although I'd probably want to ride it too LOL.

    Yes it's stupid, most of my ideas are, but even you have shown some interest in wanting to ride such a beast

    Considering it'll cost $6000 for the engine parts and then you'd have to pay for an original engine, I think it'll be unlikely that I'll be getting around to this project anytime soon. I'm only earning $60 a week, a third of that going into paying off a unreliable VFR and the rest going into feeding the gas and oil guzzling RG

    ok 6 weeks into the project & many nights in the garage. Got the seat/pegs/bars in the right position & sorted out the fairing mounts so the taller bars don't knock. Increased the ride height, steering angle now 23.5 degrees that should be enough to be getting on with.

    35mm flatslides have arrived.
    Time to do the engine
    Here is the cases before I trench them to fit the stroked crank. The 2 cranks, note; on the new (upper) one the rods protrude a little. Last pic you can see where the metal needs to come from.

    Also the barrels are bigger as they meet the cases so just got the cases bored to fit.

    Also came accross these little gems on Evil-bay. They fit into the side of the clutch cover. Very tasty, can also get the US flag or Rebel confederate flag. Yeehaw!

    (OK I've had my laugh please don't litter the thread with other redneck tat).

    I love the way things sort of happen at once.....here I am stuck at work escaping from reality by cruising around various KB, Yamaha, Ebay, Trade me (anyone got some Keihin FCR 41's?) sites.

    First I saw the KB thread about deathtraps you've owned which got me thinking about RZ and RZ/LC bikes I've owned (RZ was great but RZ/LC was shite). Then someone mentioned on a Yamaha site how the Banshee is the same as an RZ donk which had my grey matter arcin' and sparkin', then I came across some banshee/RZ goodies on Ebay which really got me thinking.....then I see you've actually gone and put it all together and then some!
    Awesome effort Dave, great to see someone doing more than just talking about it. Love the bike and can't wait to see/hear/smell the new incarnation.

    presumably the stock cases are strong enough even after being trenched and bored?

    what are you doing for a clutch and gearbox or are they strong enough?
