FS: Aprilia-Engined Single-Seater Project

For sale due to a change of chassis and engine for my trike project!

SWIFT DB1 CHASSIS
Freshly Shot-blasted & Ready For Minor Repairs / Tweaks and Paint.
Front Wishbones, Links and Rockers
Rear Wishbones
Front ARB
Steering Rack & Clamps
Steering Arms
Pedal Set
Gear Linkage
Fuel Tank
Tank Surround Plate
GRP Nosecone
GRP Side Panels
2 x Carbon Fibre Rear Covers with Air Scoops
Carbon Fibre Bi-Plane Wing.
MSA Docs & a Box of Random Odds and Sods

The chassis is straight and is in very good nick from the roll-bar forward. It's taken a knock at some point in it's life on the front n/s corner, but the (minor) bronze-welded repairs are first class.

The rear of the chassis was converted by a previous owner for using a Yamaha R1 engine and a Quaiffe chain-drive diff (neither present!). There is a minor welding repair required to one of the 'shoulder' sections of the roll-bar.

The bodywork is structurally good, but will need a little TLC in a few areas. The CF rear panels and wing would have cost a small fortune to make and are in still in very good nick.

APRILIA RSVR ENGINE
V-Twin with Pseudo Slipper Clutch and Dry-Sump.
V990RR engine model (the top spec before the introduction of the V4). Only 65kg.
51mm TB's with Injectors, Velocity Stacks, TPS, Coil Packs.
Dry Sump Tank

The ECU and Clocks for the V990RR-engined bike are can-bus linked and few folk have done any hacking work on them. There is a well known conversion to run this second generation engine using the first generation ECU and clocks. It utilises the following parts which are also included:

First Generation ECU.
First Generation RSV Exhaust System (headers, link and single-sided silencer).
First Generation Wiring Loom with Switchgear (90% complete - some relays missing).
First Generation Stator, Flywheel, Pick-Up Sensor and Cover.
First Generation Fuel Pump.

I also have a complete and working set of First Generation instrument / speedo internals. The casing were damaged, but I had planned to integrate the clocks into the dash of my project anyway so that didn't matter.

All that's still required is to get a couple of First Generation rocker covers (20 off of eBay), a little fettling to make them fit and then to put it all together.

PRICE

You know the score by now... you're paying less for the bits than I did!

I'll do the chassis, chassis components and bodywork / wing for 900 (a replacement wing would cost you the best part of 400 on it's own! ).

I'll do the engine and bits for 850. Yip, there are bare engines on eBay as low as 450-500, but by the time you've bought all the bits to make it go (which is pretty much what I'm offering), then you'll comfortably be over the 4-figure mark!

If you want the lot, then I'll make it 1600!

I'm be driving down to the Leicestershire area on Wednesday, so would include delivery if I was to meet up en-route, or if you were not too far away.

I would love to continue this project on, but as you know, losing my job and no hope of another one means toys have stopped completely for me!!!

Good luck with the sale!

To be fair, the trike project has been simmering away for the last few years... it's just the component parts that keep changing!

Not any more though!

Guys - this is a really neat chassis and body combination and is a steal at that price!

Scootz - I'm more than happy to answer any questions about the original conversion and the car's history! I've also got a load of photos on the web and a couple of in car videos too if you want some links posting.

Please be aware that today I arranged for the small repair I mentioned to be done by Windle and also for then to tidy up some ugly welds. The chassis will therefore be in A1 shape. Unfortunately this has cost me 200-ish, but I want it to be absolutely right for it's new owner!

I will absorb 50% of this additional cost myself, but unfortunately I WILL HAVE TO RAISE THE CHASSIS PRICE FROM 900 TO 1k in order to recoup some the additional outlay.

*I would have just edited the original post, but the edit function date has expired*

Just a quick update to let folk know that I've given Rob (wheels) a couple of weeks to make a deal.

I'll update again once I know if it's definitely sold or now.

Cheers!
