Default RRX refresh ( again

Well having owned this from new in 1998 my blade has had 2 full strip & rebuilds . This time being the third the bike is goin to be taken from the road & used as a track toy .. This time I have decided to have the whole bike done in flat anodised black . I stripped & rebuilt the engine ( 3 rd overhaul ) over winter so no issues there. I have just had the frame back from my painter so next cpl months I will be adding to it . No rush as itl be next year for finish . Few picks
Before on second overhaul



& on strip down last year



To how she looks today


So it's goin to be a bit at a time , not sure we're im goin yet in regards to plastics , keeping the stock 16" front but ohlins springs & uprated calipers will be added .. I was goin to put a VFR single sided on her when I was thinking about a streetfighter project , but now it's just goin to be tracked a uprated Hagon or Ohlins unit will suffice .. Will add to the thread from time to time , but it may take a wilst as my scoob is off the road also getting work done ( 2 many projects ) ha
Thanks for looking

Not updated in a Wilst
Things moving slowly as loads of other things goin on & as I said this was a spare time no hurry to finish project . Anyway I got it back as a rolling chassis , all painted & looking new but I wasn't happy so pulled the rear end . After looking through many breakers & eBay gems ( not ) I contacted a guy who had several a VFR rear ends . After s chat I made the 200ml round trip to see his stock , after looking through most of his stock I picked what I belie was the best of the bunch.,I knew it was still goin to cost me again as I would be completely stripping & rebuilding with new seals , bearings , couplings & washers ( david silver motorcycle parts ) ...
So after everything here is the finished arm
The guy didn't have a wheel ( or the 1 I wanted ) they are normally 3 or 5 spoke but I have since managed to source the more sort after wheel
So it's just the wheel ( new tyre to get & rear calliper to paint & refurb to get it back as a rolling bike . Here's some pics
