After one year spent in Australia, I discovered new kind of motorcycle. Deus Ex Machina had a shop close to where I lived. I discovered Lossa Engineering in from California thanks to their SR500 cafe racer. Then I felt in love with the SR500. I’m really interested in the mono but moreover it’s way older than me!
Subscription on a couple of forum, research on the Internet, I made my choice, this is what I want! I simply just want something we don’t see everyday!

It’s been a while I had to take care of it! After putting the frame on wooden block, I’ve taken the front wheel and the fork out. The frame with the engine where left on the stand.
I allready started to clean the speedometer and late February, I took care of reassemby it.
To remind you, I had rust inside that I handled with Restom product and some steel wool.
It’s been a while I’ve started dismantling the carb, around end of November. The time to buy the new screw hardware and a restoration kit. For those who don’t use twitter, I’ve started to reassemble the carb when I saw I didn’t have the right screws. The seller offered me to send me the right one. If you need some, just ask him, it’s really good quality http://carb-motor-screw-kit.com/
Well well well, it’s been a while since I’ve published a ticket, the website is not even up to date so I fix it right now.
I’ve spent three / four hours in my garage today.
I wanted to clean the front of the bike, so I started with bleeding the front brake. A simple hose and it does the work. Meanwhile I took the exhaust out, four screws and it’s out.
