new member R6 and R1 Mini

Postby oliverash » Fri Aug 09, 2013 10:08 pm

had my 2003 R6 for about 5 years now. no issues with it other than burning through a few rectifiers as they do.

my main reason for joining was to get a bit of help with my 2003 R1 engined Mini. Already posted in the general chat about a couple of issues im having so i thought you might like to see what happens to the engines from binned R1's.

The bodywork was done by a specialist and the R1 conversion is done by Pro-Motive - but everything else has been carried out and put together by me.

The painted engine installed in the custom subframe.

Chain driven. Uses a modified Mini diff and has cable operated sequential gearshift. Hydraulic clutch operation using Mini slave cylinder.

Most recent photo taken a couple of months ago. its very nearly finished. finally got engine running this week albeit not pefectly yet.

Thats really nice! Good to see something a little different from the usual (imo very expensive) ZCars rear conversion... and I love the standard exterior too!

Theres a lot of detail in your build as well, the calipers and hoses, the tyre choice... What diff is it running?

I'm sure I'm not the only one that would want to see more pics of this!!!
This is my bike. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
Without me my bike is useless. Without my bike, I am useless.

Cheers for the comments its been a real Challenge at times.
It's a modified Mini casing with 4 pin diff. I couldnt quite stretch to the Quaife at the time so its going to be a handful. But I can easily upgrade it if I feel the need once I've driven it.
Plenty of info and pics on my build thread at The Mini Forum.
It's been 5 years so its quite lengthy...
