Yep. Just wanted to show that you'll be able to blend the kawi motor with the older parts and it will come out cool in the end if they can take a modern scout lump and makd it look like that.  Cheers

MT - yep, all down to careful use of styling cues and disguise ! The colourways will play a big part too. I'm pretty well settled on a light coffee with yellowish tinged cream [ Buttermilk ]

The stash is slowly growing !  ;) By the end of next week I should have all the major parts in stock - and quite a few of the small items.

The Weber KZ motor will definitely be the one for this project - I'll make it look the part !

Meanwhile I'm arranging to collect the late KZ motor from a pal at the end of the month for the Glemseck bike - also probably a complete spare bottom end.

POC time .......... yes - the Bantam forks will work with the XLR front wheel. The wheel spindle slot just needs opening up a tad to take the Honda spindle [ which just needs shortening ] and tyre clearance is OK.

I think the fork legs need to be a couple of inches shorter [ cosmetics ] - AND I wanted to get that Motobecane "banana" fork look. Again, what worked in my head looks like a goer. Unfortunately I ran out of sufficient garden hose [  ::)!! ] to mock up the complete banana shape - but at least you can see where I'm going with it ..... bit of imagineering required. Who needs cad-cam ! ;)

I'm going to use a couple of seat springs [ see pix ] at the top to give the illusion of suspension, and to a degree they will add some additional springing. ALL parts are available to refurb the Bantam forks - and not expensive.
