Racing

All racing parts are made by myself according to original parts, historical photographs, blue prints or according to special customer requirements.
The racing sport is a very special domain as this is an area were parts have to be reconstructed, which on the one hand are unique and on the other hand very complicated in the manufacture. The fabricating of 1,00mm thick aluminum sheet or aluminum skin into a finely hammered fairing is not a rarity in racing sport.

 

Fuel tank for BMW R37 racing motorcycle from 1926

Detailed reconstruction of the tank as a riveted and soft solder sheet metal construction. Finished tank top and bottom in 0,88mm sheet steel.
Both parts were then galvanically tinned for corrosion protection.
The tank top with filler neck was screwed to the underside of the tank with M3 countersunk screws and then the completely screwed visible edge was soft soldered. In the final operation, the circumventing solder seam was then filed and smoothened flat with the surrounding surface.

NSU Rennmax dolphin fairing reconstruction

Manufactured in 1,5mm thick aluminum sheet according to the original pattern.
Overall sheet surface fine hammered and brushed.
Circular edges reinforced with rolled-in wire insert. All together a very elaborate and time-intensive aluminum fabrication.

 

 

Honda 2RC164 factory race machine (4 cylinder 250cc from 1964)

Restoration of original racing fairing. The starting base was an existing original factory fairing from the 250cc racing machine from 1963.
Over time, the many race events had taken their toll on the overall very sensitive fairing (made of 1.00mm thick aluminum sheet). The surface of the fairing was dented, had many cracks and holes.

 

 

Restoration and reconstruction:
The paint stripped fairing was subjected to careful and meticulous repairs. Cracks and holes were closed and welded.
Subsequently, the panel was enlarged laterally based on original photographs. The original rolled-in wire insert was restored and the entire sheet metal surface was smoothed as far as possible.
A lower engine cowling was newly reconstructed and matched to the original fairing.
All metal parts were painted in matt silver and the Honda typical paint elements added.
