    During some mountainbike downhill practice on September 1st 2013, i shattered my pelvis in a massive mountainbike downhill-run, after 3 weeks in the hospital i got home..
    (yess, i was wearing full safetygear)

    I realized after a few days that id never be able to drive my 700bhp driftcar again to the limits i was used to, so i decided to sell it. (i wont be able to climb into the car through the rollcage again)

    So just 6 weeks after my accident checked the local ads & found a bike i really wanted,
    an 1995 F3, it also turned out to be a friends kis Selling it, not that it turned out any better though, the seller neglected to tell me the bike was imported, hence it shold have had an 30% lower price, but i wanted it badly :-) this was in Octobre 2013.

    My last bike 14yrs ago, was an Honda (what else) CR250R supermoto with CBR600 F1 wheels.
    No pictures unfortunatley.. but the bike before the 250 was an …. CR500 also with CBR600 f1 wheels.
    ex HRC raceengine with 82bhp, stock was 65, with 17/32 gearing it did 100kmh in first gear & topspeed of 214kmh… on one wheels if you liked it that way .

    So, the car is on sale, the new motorcycle is in a buddy´s garage over the Winter,,,
    On a snowy saturday in February 2014 i sat on it for the very first time, quite a nice feeling that was…. until i tried to get of it… wgich was near impossible…..(a lot of pain)

    But I simply cannot leave vehicle-racing (cars & bikes) alone.. so with the car out of the question, i deceided to go a bit different.
    every year since -09 there has been the equivalent of Bonneville Speedweek in Sweden,
    but on I C E :-) – This is where im going next year !

    The bike is going to get som surgery before this event though…
    CBR125/NSR125 narrow Wheels, handmade iceracingtires, tuned engine with the following parts:

    skimmed & raceported head,
    Vance&Hines headers
    Ducati freeflowing muffler
    HRC ECU
    HRC cams
    HRC Advance Unit
    Dynojet carb-kit

    We will be looking for 125bhp & 15000rpm
    Im also hoping for about 245-250 kmh on the ice.

    March 2014 i bought an sparepartsbike, an 1996 CBR600 F3 with an engine that has only done 22000kms, the first bike´s engine has done 77000kms.

    In a Little while i´ll be plastidiping the entire bike in camoflage-look. even the rims.
    Miniature indicators are waiting on the shelf in the garage, together with some “odd” lokking tires :-)

    Love the F3! My first street bike was an F3. I always wanted to stud a set of tires for a dirt bike for the occasional snowfall here. It looks like your getting ready to go MAD MAX with yours though. Post abuild thread so we can see the project unfold.

    Thanxs: dirttires are for fun & Winter, spikes are for fun & iceracing.
    The dirttires will get studs silimar to ColdCutters for winterdriving.
    .—————————-
    Plasti-Dip´d front rim. the rear was already Yellow when i bought it.

    Fast By Ferracci adjustable ignition Advancer.

    So i done som more stuff: Still recovering from my injury, so cant do too much yet.

    But i got the NSR125 frontwheel with 320mm disc & the CBR125 rearwheel.
    The front wheel is 2,15″x17 & the rear is also 2,15″x17… gonna be near perfect with an 90 tire up front & an 100-120 in the rear.

    Got my 14tooth frontsprocket & ordered an 49tooth rear for attending the 1/8 mil strip nearby. for the standing start 1000meter i´ll stick to the 14 front & stock rear for now. But i do have a bunch of alu-rear sprockets from Renthal in the range 39-45.

    Also dipped most of the fairings on bike “1:
    Look carfully & you can see some silicone-holes in the Dip.

    All done:

    Bought another bike, an 1996 F3 as a sparepartsbike, but will fix this one aswell for the road:

    Ducati 955 carbonmuffler for both bikes

    The new bike turned out to be a Californa-import,, 85bhp – not the 105 as the Euro-specs of the same year.
    But that dont matter since my friend patrick has Euro-cams & CDI.

    The Vance & Hines headers i got from the US via EBAY

    Here is the CBR125 rear rim, here with an chine/Ebay rear disc which fits perfectly on 125 rim, also new titaniumbolts

    front rim off an NSR125:

    Here is the second bike as of now, as im sanding the frame for paint, it was little rusty after laying on its side outside, for 6 yrs

    A “new” set of leathers from EBAY – kinda like this EBAY :-) :

    A present from my friend: a brand new HRC carburator water-block-off-kit

    new China grips:

    New rear tire in the right size:

    front brake master cylinder that will be modifyed to be an thumboperated rearbrake since my right foot after the accident is not working great.

    Used Ohlins steeringdamper.

    New blue silicone waterhoses & airhoses for the pressurized airbox

    Genuine Honda oil-kit with filter from Honda Center in Helsingborg City.

    Was offered these brand new pistons yesterday. but i cant find them on Wiseco´s webpage.. does anyone know if they are made for the CBR600 F3 ?
    the bore is correct.

    The second bike´s frame is all sanded dowm & washed:

    Primary coat of paint

    Later tonight ill apply the Honda-silver paint

    The paint appears to be slightly darker than stock, but still looks great to me
    fasteners for centralstand & rear footpegs are cut off

    Searched the net a little for long sving arm on CBR 600 F3 & got this result:
    http://cbrforum.com/forum/members/lmc1200-45766-albums-alicia-2174-picture-alicia-11107.jpg

    So i took the #2 bikes svingarm & cut it in three pieces :-) to make a detachable longer svingarm for the #1 bike.

    Will fit an Honda CBR600 F4i aluminum svingarm from an 2001:onbike #2.
    This fits “almost” …..

    Got some Chinastuff today- so cheap its really worth trying i think.

    Plasti-Dip´d the extra rims with the roadtires:

    Also fitted the F4i swingarm to my other frame today:

    Not as much hassle as i had read on the net, about 2 hours total. but still need the correct bearings & weld a 2mm steel plate on the inside of the linkage to prevent the new bearings from coming loose.

    Right side does not rub at all. Left side of swingarm need a little dent in it, will heat it with a heatgun for a long time, then use the BIG hammer…

    The welded pipe in the middle needs to be cut off.

    Done:

    just missing the bearings now + new Stainless steel bolts all around
