View Full Version : Finally got my Derbi together, sorta...

Got it out of mothballs yesterday. Changed the oil (YUK! it was nasty), installed the correct kickstand, front fairing stay, electronic controls, wired up the headlight and taillight, and clean and lubed the chain.[/QUOTE]

Got the bodywork back on the Derbi today. Had to do a bit of bodywork on it to get everything to work. The Plastic Doctor had prepped them but never finished them. There were a few points here and there I had to file/sand. And I had to drill new mounting holes. I've got to find brackets or make them for the front fender as well. I'm trying to decide how to have it painted.

I still need a few parts. I need a good windscreen, speedo cable, upper fairing stay, mirrors, brackets for the front fender, and I'd like to do a little tuning on it too (pipe, carb/intake, install a 70cc kit, exc.)

I have a fairing stay, speedo cable with sensor, mirrors and some other misc parts for that year. I also have some extra head light bulbs.

That looks hot. Makes me want to paint my GPR flat black. :)
