That is one hell of a transformation from the 650 custom you started with. Keep it going.
Run out of zip ties? Dental floss is an excellent alternative.

Looks lovely mate.. not a fan of the Met Green and gloss black but that's just my opinion.. really quality build !

I finally had my project running at the weekend.. still loads to do!

What paint did you use on the engine..? I've had issues getting decent paint.

Nice work.  So...adding 25-30cm of longer shock might make the difference but otherwise man that rear tire is going to hit the subframe.

It was just some rattle can stuff I found on Amazon. Hycott gloss black engine paint.

Yeah I totally agree. (Also makes it difficult to mount a number plate) which I have no idea what to do with this.

I'm not 100% happy with the rear shocks and want some replacements.

Any ideas.

Eyelets for top and clevis for bottom. Currently 340mm

I have gone a little OTT (over the top) with the nut and bolt situation.

I had a company manufacture me a new swing arm bolt and a rear wheel axle from titanium
I also asked him to replace the other engine mount bolts etc etc.

So other than the engine bolts I have all titanium nuts and bolts for this project.

Ordered a rear set bracket from cognitio and had to put my Mark on it with chopping a few bits to allow it to work on the 650 frame (as it has a removable section

Hagon makes any size,type shocks you need.   A kick up in the rear of the hoop is how most folks avoid the tire rub.

Titanium hardware throughout. All of the pedal bikes Iíve owned were kitted the same way. Youíre the man for doing it to a motorcycle.
