Default Aprilia RS50 “Twinturba”

Finally have time to get my own Aprilia RS50 back on the road! First step was getting TT into the batcave and onto the table.

Had a few minutes to check out what I have and what needs to be done.

Pulled the old radiator in favor of our tried and true Apollo racing one, but need to sand and paint the mount before reinstalling.


Original plan was to utilize the 125 electronic tach so I started taking it apart to try and develop a plan of attack.



Need to replace these, would like to make some custom ones.

Yup, feels like I've been getting everyone else bike back on the road this past year.

I need that 125 one as soon as you figure out how to mod it.
You can grab some aluminuminum from home depot or online, bend it and drill some holes for the fairing brackets.

4Ari posted the date for next years extravaganza which inspired me to get my bike going! I only have 5 months to get this babay back on the road
Today I had two simple goals:
1) Install the Motor
2) mount the Radiator
Easy but tedious making sure everything gets connected.

#1
Something is missing here!


Lets get this thing put in place!


It’s a delicate dance taht I’ve danced quite a few times before










With the heart in place and bolted in, it’s time to connect everything




Also swapped out as many bolts as I could along the way with the sweet gold Ergal ones.


At the shop I use this Stanley tool set I received after 20 Years of service at my former company!


Time to get #2 done
Painted the lower bracket last night, so got that on there.



Getting in in place




Hose install


BTW this Aerospace Protectant goes on all the hoses before Im done.


Hoses look like new after protectant


With the Radiator in I decided to keep connecting everything to the motor.














Thats it for now, but I have a shorter list to prepare for the final bits before starting this beast for the first time in years

Lots of nice details you've added. Should run as good as it looks I'm sure.

Can't wait to hear it fire up!

Post a video if you can.
