The engine is of course fully rebuilt but left in a standard state of tune, 60hp from the lazy litre airhead provides plenty of shove for this customer’s requirements. And with a load of weight lost courtesy of a bunch of stock parts being removed it’ll go way better, and a mean looking coating of black paint is worth at least 20hp. The headers are stock but the mufflers NCT’s own work for an angrier soundtrack. The forks and calipers have been rebuilt and a YSS monoshock smoothes out the ride. The customer owns a well known car and motorcycle tyre shop so wanted to run the now very traditional Firestone Deluxe Champions.
Nearly all customers these days request a full rewire to avoid side-of-the-road frustration and the obvious choice is Motogadget’s tried and tested M-Unit system – as fitted here to control the LED indicators and minimal switchgear, mounted to LSL clipons. The speedo is a simple all-in-one from T&T.
Not ground breaking admittedly but that’s the point, not all customers want to ride a wow, look at me machine. In just a couple of years NCT have built a strong business with a long list of happy punters. We’ll no doubt see more from them on these pages soon and at Bike Shed London 2018 next May.
