So after a few months of knocking around on a rigid bandit 6 I realised I really missed the speed of a bigger bike. The way forward; FJ1200 RIGID. I’ve been tinkering for a couple of years but this is my first full bike build.
I picked up this little gem 2 days later from Northallerton – bloody sods law I was 20 miles away picking up the frame a couple of days before. The bike run great and only had 33,000 miles on it so should last a little while.
Simples! All the rods holding the engine in place knocked through with ease….except the one we spent 20 minutes on before we realised it was an allen bolt 😉 For a 1987 bike it was impressive to only find 1 rounded off bolt.
