Hi Tmnstr,

Sure, in fact I'll do one better and post some photos shortly. The existing S2R swingarm suspension mount might work with this design...

Hi Tmnstr,

Sorry for the tardy response, I was holding off to take some shots of it installed but having done that, the photos don't really show the mechanical detail in black.

Here it is raw, and a sneaky shot with one of the pipes on:

Nice! I was wondering if a bottom pivot would work out better Shortens the stroke needed for full range of movement. Great use of the mounting holes on the back if the engine case!

Thanks for sending,

No problem, just let me know if you want more info.

I have to paint the interim wheels... I liked the Red/Burnt Orange clash initially but its getting old fast. I think the maiden run might be only a matter of weeks away, cant wait!

Cheers - Las

Famous Last Words



Watching paint dry is like... wait...

Yep, this is still going. Haven't had a huge amount of time on it recently, have found my focus drawn elsewhere over the Summer break.

By way of updates: completed the new wiring loom including Reh's Motogadget module, reassembled into a vintage headlight bucket and tested. Brackets for the new head and tail lights, under tank battery, various other little brackets all fab'ed and powder coated.

Going with the OEM tank and Diopa tail in Burnt Orange while I find time to hand sand the alu tank and tail. Black S2R wheels until I can draw blood from the Kineo stone.

Hopefully button it all up next week and start the shakedown immediately, plus the long promised pics and videos.

Shakedown

A great weekend, with the ECU flashing and mapping done, I picked up the bike and have barley dragged myself away from it for the past 2 days

Next is just some clean up / details, after these photos I replaced the mirrors and reservoirs, then rain halted any fun. Stage One complete; ride out any issues, then get back into the next plans for the bike. I also ordered a go-pro, so will get some better quality shots and a video or two at some stage soon. Until then, phone shots will have to suffice

It would never have been possible without the invaluable support from Brad and Robson at Bikecraft, Darryl at Motologic, SM70, Reh, Martin at MotoWheels, Greg at WASP, JCPak, Eight Forty Eight, Tmnstr, [email protected] Fab and everyone who offered kind words and practical advice. Thanks!

Cheers - Las

Obviously you have taste, but now I cant stop wondering what a Double McChicken might be like... ha ha ha.

Thanks, gotta love trellis frames and swingarms, visually captivating engineering.
