I posted a wish list for the Monster Project a while back that included a ton of extras I need(ed) to make the Monster shine. One of which was rear sets. Surprisingly hard to find for this bike, given the hideous set the bike comes equipped with. Rizoma makes some that hover at a cost of $600… too rich for my blood. I decided to hunt, hunt, hunt… But I did NOT want anything I was going to have to fabricate a bracket for. I am approaching the point of too many projects on this bike. I want to get it done.
Join me on my journey as I locate some sweet, inexpensive rear sets.
I NEEDS YOUR HELPS.
Alright guys… Here’s a list of stuff I need for my Monster as the project is coming to a head. Obviously, I’ll pay for this stuff… though I always take donations! ;). Looking for the following:
1998 750 Monster:
For 748 53mm forks:
Basically I’ve got a 748 front end on my 750 monster, therefore the old mounting system for headlight and signals no longer works (because there is no where to connect stuff to the triples), nor do the instruments or clip ons. My rear sets are screwed (and ugly) hence wanting a nice upgrade. Let me know by sending me a message through my contact form or emailing me at alicia[at]themotolady.com. Just change the [at] and change it to @.
It’s been a week since I first rode the monster and had it running, I posted a video of the first time I had it fired up a few days ago. Since then, I’ve been trying to make sure all the parts I got will work on the bike. Turns out a lot of people think they have the right information but as it goes with older bikes, it doesn’t always work out that way. It’s been pretty hard to piece together what will work with what since I actually know very little about the small bits like bearings and steering stems.
Anywho, on to my progress. (With LOTS of pictures.)
