exhaust isn't going to fit without a lot of chopping, i was sure once the engine was in place and the wheels on id have enough clearence but no chance! so junking that idea and moving onto this


and adding this

just a couple recent pics for anyone that does look in


light i think came off a honda cb, had it a while, quick action throttle and clipons

nitrous - just need to get the injectors in when the plenum is on

td04 turbo, not much room between the tyre and frame rails
frame is going off next week to be goosenecked by about 5 inches, this will make it longer give it a better look and get rid o that iron cross in the brace that i hate so much im also having the plenum for the turbo made up. i will get some allo or stainless 2.5 in pipe to carry the air rom the turbo housing and then its the headers i need to think about. should be looking better in a couple weeks when i get itall back

Well here it is all goosenecked, once I got the wheels on and the engine mounted it became apparent that things weren't gonna work, as was apparent with the vance & Hines the ground clearence is very low. The turbo sorts this problem for me but then the front rails were too far forward yet too close together to tuck the turbo in which meant it was gonna catch the wheel, the rear of the engine is too close to the back tube to give room for filters or plenum and this is something I'm still struggling around, goosenecking it has removed a few issues for me and created a whole new set of issues for me with HUC, never mind, I won't be using them in the future so hey ho and on we go. The whole back bone was removed and moved forward 6 inch and angled down more. I kept the original height and rake on the headstock as i can't really add more rake without changing to longer forks. A cross brace was put in at the front as we believe it should have one anyway and another at the top. I should be picking it up at some point tomorrow and have it rolling again by the weekend, then we can see what a difference it has made

Looking good

If it was me i'd be looking at some bracing round that headstock other than that it all looks good

Nice one Dai

Good work mate, that thing is bonkers!

I was gonna comment on how it might be a tad uncomfy with those clip ons but with that engine + a turbo and that petrol tank, I'm guessing you'll get plenty of chances to stretch your legs every time you pass a petrol station lol.

I like the clip-ons, from the side it looks at first like there are no bars!

footpegs will be going way back toward the rear spindle, a bit bonneville salt racer-esque

frame will require more cutting i thing to get a plenum in there

Dear me,what have you had done to the front of the frame???
Why on earth would you spend good money on a well built frame and then destroy it by chopping it about??
You must be mad?
Id sooner have a clone ranger set of HUC's.
My 3 HUC's will be different colours,so I dont get mixed up.
Poor Mr Butler must be having sleepless nights cos of you. Why oh why oh why?? he must ask??
Tut.

ive got to chop out the tube at the back of the engine yet too, only just enough room for a filter after you hammer the middle 2 in place - not even slightly the room for a plenum chamber - i did try pods before i opted to go turbo and couldnt get two filters on the inside without bending them.
perhaps its because im clueless and no idea what im doing or talking about
im gonna scrap the electric box and use an immitation oil tank to hide some of the electrics and if i need any more room ill steel sheet the underside of the frame tubes at the back of the engine and the top two cross braces to create a box like section with the electrics inside, which will look like isnt there with the battery box on top - i should get the cdi, fusebox and relays in there probably get it all in there laid out flat

that's the room im left to play with to get a plenum in place and be able to pull it on and off, i think by replacing the bar for one that runs straight up and down ill have much better room but of course the electric box wont fit in that space anymore

i think when its built im gonna put a sidecar on it too, for the kids really, something tubular that will compliment it, kind of like this



it could look good. granted sidecars aint to everybodies taste but ..... its my bike lol

if your after saving space how about a set of stick coils from the modern gsxr etc, I have them on my old kawasaki, no coils to hide, or big fat ht leads etc

improved running and starting, huge sparks

I looked in to stick coils before but on OSS website it seems they're a lotta hassle.... Finding ones that will fit and getting them wired something about the ohm I think I can't remember

If you were to have a sidecar,and god knows why youd want one of them,to no doubt spoil the bike even more,you could hide the leccy bits in there.
Youd no doubt need a bomber seat made out of alloy too.

You did haha

The sidecar I don't want on all time I want it to be totally detachable so that when its not on there's no trace it ever wears one, so electric needs to stay strictly to the bike. I'll prob build the bike and get it finnished and do the sidecar as a seperate project.

I hate being negative,but i think the pics of the bike wearing a Vance and Hines pipe looks far better than the extended front end arrangement??
You'd need to be 6ft4 tall to ride it the way youve done it???
The ideas you have of fitting a turbo and nitrous put you in true "fruit loop" territory. I applaud you for your madness.
I know Rob mentioned clone in regard to HUC's,so he must agree that an original HUC will be better than a modified one?
So that'll be me and him standing side by side tutting and shaking our heads together then!.
