Delboy's Garage, Project 'Caffabusa' Day 2, Strippage !



all right right project calaboose a day two already now thank you first of all for your crazy comments in the last video I know you absolutely loved the reveal and I'm really looking forward to getting stuck into this yes as you all said it's a crazy project to try and make it a phrase that out of a hayabusa but hey why not it's there we can do it it didn't cost enough money to worry any ain't worth restoring it seriously anus to 40,000 mile bike 48,000 Arthur no it's got Madame Ana – he's got nine owners he's got no service issue whatsoever it is them the completely unknown quantity but I do know that under all that Tupperware when we get struck off there's an insanely powerful engine in there a big fat hairy chested back wheel loads of great chassis work suspension and all I've got to do is renew all its consumables and then I've got the base of an extremely strong solid bike to make a calf racer out and how that looks and how that gets designed and how it comes out in the end no idea whatsoever at the moment it's going to evolve as it goes as all the other bikes have so y'all that's enough chat let's get its frock off and see what awaits us underneath welcome back alright just saw in part this if it may help you for the future has a little piece of knowledge for the back of your head if you ever feel the need to built a screwdriver down the middle of a lock to turn it on for whatever reasons we do such ridiculous things like I've lost my keys or somebody attempted to steal it or the worst one and the most common one is it's a really old warm neck that old lock and it's all well and then no longer works and I can't start my bike because it won't turn well obviously you can buy a new ignition lock now as we know from remote a 448 pounds jobs are good no problem and a new tank cap included but if you ever feel the need to do that to stick a screwdriver down there you don't need to if you take out the two screws that I just did like that those two there then you can extract that shroud just take it off then you can take off that little tink on the top that's the little keep and then tumblr just falls out alright the spring as well be careful and that's out so now that's a nice clean hole in there and you can be a screwdriver now down inside there a big screwdriver and click just turn it on and the bike will start so it's an emergency or Abroad's and you're the tour in and you've completely lost your keys and your apps stranded logs you get that off okay take security screws to get it off but if you can get it off and dismantle it you don't have to smash the lock to pieces you can simply dismantle it take that out then you can turn it on and off and if you find your keys later on you can reassemble it put it back together and all these good so really honestly there's usually always a peaceful answer to things you think about it well just buy a new one for 48 quit right okay if I get stuck into pulling the plastics off this and never look at these surprises that will wake us underneath I want to make it clear generation one hayabusa are very popular by the plastics for this again sawed-off for now as they get more and more scarce it's 20 year old bike and they're definitely worth some money and I want to help myself fund this build always I'm going to try and repair and refurbish as much stuff as I possibly can and impart that and share it and hopefully I hope some of you too but there are some things you just can't repair and can't refurbish brake pads change the sprockets they are replacement only and I need to bind them now I'm going to make myself a big old shopping list probably in the next video the one after and that's gotta be all bought at one time so hopefully the plastics on this all this Tupperware that I don't need has value to one of you booster boys out there who might want to invest in it all for yourself if you've got a high booster it doesn't even repaint him I make that absolutely clear but if getting the same color as your bike then it would need to be painting anyway even if it was immaculate so you just have to accept that but they are intact plastics nothing broken nothing snapped there's no tab snapped off there's no big scars down it or anything it's good quality bodywork and that's not just the side panels and the nice kind of the tail there's so much of it you got all these filling panels here or I imagine insanely expensive from Suzuki the big side panels naturally the belly pan the filling panels on the front the under filled panels that there's about five six panels up underneath the fairing that you never see the front my got three pieces and of course the big tail piece itself and the under tray included all of its original genuine hayabusa all of its in fine condition for repainting and using on a bike the auto restore or repair and keep nice so there it is if you're interested today I'm going to rip all this off put it in a big pile in the middle of the floor take a shot of it at the end and that's what will be available so any Brewster boys are interested at the end of this video you should have a lot for you a single one lot that I can sell I'll be interested if you are drop sliding the comments steal no for I can build a budget for this seat lock ready for this cable tie get they fix baby awesome original factory tools it's about four sets of them we've got now awesome they look complete wonderful and what's that answers on a postcard what is that now that looks to me like a Power Commander lead of some kind like a PC three or something whatever they kind of just get us down there we'll find out later with ace [Applause] Oh God Nestor that's an Allen screw and that's life is a cross head screw no silicon did I was worried that was hot events excellent none my favorite man right okay there she is with her frock off now you can see what a stake now that's not all bad that's what I expected I bought this bike and looked at it long and hard before I partnered with my money and I made sure that I knew what was buying and I know that there's an awful lot of this has to be repaired replaced upgraded all the banjo bolts on the brakes were rusty that's no problem replace all then the wheels are all chips and scratched and corroded the paint's all flaking off that radio is in the right hole mess the matrix is completely loaded up with road debris and mud so that's absolutely naked you can't repair that now go in the bin all the little things have been flattened on it as well so I guess so people try to brush that mud out and keep it on the road but how that's doing is a cooling device not very well I imagine so I'm going to get rid of that put a new one on but I'm not replacing anything that doesn't need replacing for safety or mechanical reasons as far as the patina is concerned so I love that nice bike the most it really is great there's several good features about this I've got the gal for disc so I haven't got to replace the discs that saved me a lot of money the calipers will get rebuilt they're there to kick her six pots I've not done a pair of those far as I remember I've done the Newson's loads of times but a calipers a caliper how hard can it be we'll get that apart well it'll be a video coming up same goes for all the other stuff I'm gonna put new Pistons in these if I can as well because the Pistons on most bikes even if they've corroded and you take that corrosion off Trojans corrosion it tends to return like the boogeyman so all right we'll put some brand new ones in there if I can that would be the way to spend the money rather than faffing about putting new discs because I don't care what it looks like this is going to be a rat rod not a survival bike with gas masks and ammo teens I've been that way too many times I want to make a proper old rat rod style and I'm thinking anything any patina any rust any corrosion he's great I need to keep it preserve it and leave it there as long as it's not interrupting anything mechanical it will stay there was a little part of the look now that's bad that's nasty and the Orca as well they've got to be replaced but it's not all bad I've looked in seriously on one thing I'll show you magnet still suffering how lucky is that now if you know your high boosters as a few people jealous already I'm quite sure these sufferings are quite rare that's because they first came out the factory with an aluminium seat subframe on the back all aluminium tube in super light weights walk bike Suzuki decided that's the right way to go and then when owners started putting pannier boxes on and a top box and opinion and their own fat ass they were finding that they could in some extreme cases fracture the aluminium cigarette they weren't heavyweight enough they weren't strong enough to take a full touring package so Suzuki didn't get panicky they didn't get funny about it and they just said okay we're not going to recall these bikes because there's no fault with them the box is panniers and everything that's being put on is not Suzuki stuff so we don't have to comply to what you want to put on however we will offer you an option if you wish of a heavy duty steel subframe if you want to go touring on your my booster I think that's a great way to go now this is 20 years ago I remember this remote local news I was working in the motorcycle trade at the time and it was a big thing so any generation one Hayabusa one of the things a lot of people check was does it have a steel subframe or is it aluminium right in the original doesn't matter unless you're gonna load it right up or like me unless you're gonna weld it now that's the other thing that's why I'm so happy about this and I'm really chuffed this this big old subframe here you can see all of it is steel it's got these good big fat lugs and there are pieces of bar this is a piece of bar drilled through both of these sites and these lurks on the back there big thick lumps of steel bar with threads cut into them I love that because what it means is that when I come to make my calf racer tale I've got all this square plumb straight super heavyweight steel subframe to make it from I can trim off why don't need and clean it up with the grinder but what is there is so solid you could winch the bike off the ground by it and I'm really happy with that because the aluminium ones what I couldn't world that I can't blow down the menu at this moment in time I will learn in the future someday but it would have been an issue of what I would have done it took it off got rid of it and made a steel one and I need to I've got a heavy duty steel Hayabusa subframe and I'm really chuffed with that because that gives me so many more options than I would have had and it means what I'm left with when I've built my calf racer is going to be proper strong like the Forth Bridge and the last thing he's the front fairing as well and that's this a steel bracket they held the nosecone and again you can pick the up by a mounted straight to the frame it goes straight for the two lugs on the front and just like right back to the original GSXR fare in that was mounted straight on the front of your head stock that's exactly the same and what that gives me remember this is not Street fire this is going to be a calf racer so therefore I can keep the forks naked nothing on them except clip-ons and I'll mount the fairing a half fairing a little nose cone on the top that will be mounted here quite wide twin headlights kind of endurance races stylee and really really cool but this steel subframe here this gives me all the options in the world it's got lugs he's got threads all over it little bracket trees loads of stuff use what I need to use lop off the rest paint it black and move on that's exactly one needle it's gonna save me so much time ever fabrication of making things because it's all so straight dead squared they're plumb and really easy to use and again still easy the world awesome so that's it now let's look at that pile of stuff over there and tell you I'm gonna get rid of it all maybe you can L okay so here it only is this is everything I've taken off today complete set of high booster generation one bodywork all of it 22 pieces and all including the seats the mirrors the indicators in the nose cone full tail piece both big fat side panels look Benny pan pan oh I forgot to take off that'll go in there too nice double bottle black screen from my god all these lovely fetching chrome frame cups which I know you want so much they are actually crazy and deeply horrible but I'll chuck em in if you've got a special need for those just say but they're 140 quid on Amazon check them out just playin high boots of chrome frame covers ridiculous money but they were all they'll go in there to everything in one box that's what I'm trying to do here I want to get rid of everything I've got here all to one person if possible and try to help fund myself on doing the calf races building it's very simple I can't refurbish and repair things like brake pads change the sprockets and wheel bearings they have to be all new so I've got some shopping to do and I need for that hopefully this can contribute towards that budget I'm just trying to subsidize things and make this a little bit more an affordable bill and that's what we will do in it so the bitch you don't need to fund the bitch you do so there it is now let me know what you want I'll do a pan overlaid with a camera at the end so you can see exactly what's there if you're interested let me know but I do want to set it all up so please don't ask can I have the left-hand mirror please no is the answer before you even ask or want it all gone in one hit if you like it make an offer for that a lot and then you sell the rest that make yourself some profit it's something easy way to do it now that's it I'm off to do some shopping I've got an awful lot of stuff to order for that starting with the radiator the oil cooler the brake service kits the Pistons the seals and wheel bearings changed why because I've got lots of stuff to shop forward to get online get myself the best deal for all of it in the meantime we're playing board call it done for today thanks for watching take it easy ride safe I'll see you next time you know how I'm feeling No yeah I know

    That's a lovely tip from the 1:00 mark but maybe you don't realise what you've done there, you've humbly and peacefully told people how to steal motorbike hahaa, I know a lot of bikes have immobilisers these days but still =P

    Does a power commander UP the power or something? why would you want to do that on a Busa, one of the most powerful motorbikes in history. The windscreen, seat and headlight look immaculate.

    That's gonna look so awesome as a rat rod.

    Del… I I would consider changing the name of the project as the way it is said could be constituted as the derogatory word for black people under the apartheid regime in South Africa. It would be the same as adding "N#g" in front of "abusa." Don't want to come across as an offended Snowflake. Just want to give you the heads up. ?
