PROJECT NSR 2

PART ONE - Introduction

Welcome to Project NSR 2. I have decided to take a break from the original Project NSR, which was a NSR 50 mini bike. Don't worry I will continue with Project mini NSR in the future. The new Project NSR is owned by Oyvind Birkeland of Norway. He bought the bike recently from a racing shop in his area. It had been crashed and damaged quite badly as you can clearly see. Don't worry, the previous owner wasn't hurt too bad. Luckily Project NSR 2 was crashed on a race track.

Project NSR 2 started off as a 1994 SE Model, it will be rebuilt with performance in mind and without hurting the owners finances. Of course the owner wants to have an original machine that is unique and will be reliable plus a blast to drive !!

62K - Click for more detail Here is the bike from the front, look carefully and you will see that there actually is no front, so this will be a major part of the project, getting it back on both wheels. Click on the picture or click here for more details about the all new Project NSR 2
Another view of the front of the bike. The front cowl was completely destroyed and will be replaced with all new bodywork from a 2000 model RS250 racer. Click here or on the picture for more details. 61K - Click for more details
48K - For more details Here is a nice shot of the front forks. I would have to say these are slightly bent and in need of replacement. At the moment the owner wants to get the bike on the road as soon as possible, so it looks like a standard SE or SP suspension will be fitted. In the future there is a possibility of swapping in a complete front end from a RVF 400. Time will tell. Click here or on the picture for more details.
Another front view of this poor NSR 250. Don't worry !! Soon Project NSR 2 will be transformed into a beautiful machine that will have other NSR owners jealous !! Click on the picture or click here for more details. 40K - Click for full details
55K - Click for full size This is the bike from the rear quarter. The rear seat cowl was also damaged in the crash and will be replaced with a seat cowl from a RS 250 works racer. Click here or on the picture for more details.
Another view from the side showing the missing front end. Work is under way to replace the front end and there is a chance of some light weight Magnesium wheels to replace the standard wheels. Click here or on the picture for more details. 44K - Click for more details

Looking at the back of the bike it does not look so bad. The rear tire is in pretty bad shape, the rear turn signals are damaged, the rear sets are slightly bent and a few other things on the bike need care and attention. Click here or on the picture for more details. This is the first part of a series showing how Oyvind in Norway will bring this NSR back to life at a reasonable price that should not break the bank. Please check in from time to time for updates and exciting news about the all new Project NSR 2 !!
