Default Bats Aprilia “Carlos”

We just rescued another Aprilia Rs50! This one has a full Malossi build and included a brand new Malossi replacement top end!

Few more pix of Carlos to give a better idea of what we're working with. Looks good in the first pic, but this bike needs a complete overhaul. There is dirt, oil, and grime everywhere, the wiring harness looks like spaghetti, and the motor hasn't started in years!

Started the process of assessing and caressing our newest preservation project. Lots of grease and grime, and a few surprises.

Lots of different hardware used throughout the bike, luckily we have a few Ergal bolt kits to remedy this.



"Custom" v fairing and missing a piece or two.



This bike has made a long trip around the world and across the country to get to the Bats cave!



With the side fairings removed, time to check out how bad this is. Some people claim to get the worst neglected bikes, but we by far save the worse neglected bikes from the junkyard to give them new life!
Yea, there might have been a leak somewhere!




The previous owner said there was a lot of money spent to build this into a full Malousy MHR replica bike. We can see some evidence of that with the Malousy parts.



Interesting GP shifter installed, if this becomes a race bike that will come in handy.


Stay tuned!
