It has been a loooonnng trip from LAS VEGAS to FRANCE.
Found in a very poor state in Las Vegas, Mitch on his birthday, decide to acquire those elements even if they were in a poor state.
The idea in mind was to try to preserve this mythic part of the trilogy and to restore this beauty but with the preservation of the initial state
After a delay due to maritim transportation blockers, it arrived safely in France in October 12th
The First step of the restoration was ready to start:
Putting this body with the motorcycle bike !
Following the idea of rebuiding this vehicle from the 'Future', a custom electric bike was choosen to fit the ninja 250 dimensions, and permit this vehicle to be electric ! whaooo! Rock and Roll !:)
After cleaning the body and once put in the motorcycle, the next step was to recreate all the decals.
Thanks to his archives, Mitch found production documents, used decals and images in suficient number to be able to recreate all things with all the details.
Guillaume drawn all of the needed sketches beforer putting in production the decals and finally put those on the bike.
Hundreds of revised version were done before final lot, due to the difficulty to have all colors references and all appropriate dimensions. The final result is awesome !
The next step was to recreate all the 'missing baguettes' on the body
Paul have done 5 bikes so far including two original restorations.
On the upper left , the other original one. They were built on 1985 Kawasaki Ninja 250s, except the one on the right which is the one Paul made at Jay Ohrberg Hollywood Cars on his Ninja 600. This one has huge twin sidepipes
1st step: Using the original mold
Lucky we are that our friend Paul kept the original mold from his work in 1990's on this same motorcycle bike.
Paul use the original mold to recreate this model in fiberglass
2sd step: Out of the mold
To work on the base to make it final and to clean it.
To finalize the copy , polish it and make it ready to ship !
Our friend Greg, froml Greg's restorations build the gas door as a perfect copy and with all the details as the original gas door.
This gas door will be delivered to France and will fit perfectly the hole of the bike
