that looks good. my mate built one that was in the finals of the carole nash bike building comp a year or 2 ago, built it from a 900 monster, but he made his own single sided swingarm up and used a magnesium rally car wheel. will try and find some pics!

yep thats the one, built in his own small garage at the back of his house, no fancy tools or megga bucks parts, designed on the back of a piece of a4 paper in his lunch break.

Hi John what size wheel are you going to use on the back and once fitted what ground clearance do you have when you fit the wheel send me a photo it looks like its coming along nicely hard to say about the frame with out seeing it all together are you going to put a braceing plate on the head stock? the springer idea will go well with that stille of the frame should look well diffrent for a ducati. Im still buiding my tank at the moment its a bit complecated as the battery and all the eletrics are going to be hidden under the tank body ill post a photo over the weekend look forward to seeing some more photos of your build.
Cheers Alan

plenty space to slip one of these in just above that front cylinder............

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Eaton-M45-...item4cfbfd7371

beware though when messing about with the speed of the drive ratios etc, those pulleys are a bastard to get off with out damaging them, as they are fitted with a 50 ton press.

keeps the exhaust design more simple too, clag a big carb on the inlet and pipe outlet to engine, blow off valve and off you go...........sounds easy, Ive only been on with mine for 3 years,and the fcuker isnt going to beat me.

Hi John sorry it took so long to reply ive been away for a few days as far as your cam drive goes there shouldnt be any play in it mate looks like you need to do a bit of work there the frame looks good with the wheel in if your happy with it thats all that maters. How do you intend to run the exhausts with the limited ground clearance and as your frame is quite wide 4 1/2" soon becomes a lot less when cornering so be care full where you mount your foot controls cheers Alan
