Ducati engined café racer
« on: Jun 21, 2017, 15:58:36 »
Hi.
Found a really cheep Ducati S4R monster engine and some parts. So thought I build my self a Cafe racer. Something light and fun to zip to and from work.
I'm currently working on the frame jig.

Parts I got so far.
Duc S4R engine
Honda cbr 600 front and rear wheel.
Suzuki gsx 600r RSU fork.

Frame is going to be a light weight in CrMo made by me.

Fuel tank is going to be imola style aluminium tank made by me.

Swing don't know right now. I'll see what I can find and modify. I want dual shocks at the rear.



Drawings for the jig.

Well that's it for now.
Need to go down to the workshop and continue with the frame jig.

I'm in also!
What sort of frame will you be building? Going to copy the original duc frame, something bimota-esque perhaps?

I had a bimota db2sr. I regret selling it. But I made drawings of the frame. And I made fiberglass molds so maybe another time.
No this frame will be narrower than a Ducati frame.
Something like this.

Did some more on the jig. Drilled and taped 36 holes. Did some curved milling for locking the steering head angel. I can adjust it between 0 and 30 degree. More than necessary.

that looks a bit like an ss/sc frame.  you won't have any access to the vertical head with a frame like that.  unless you want to drop the engine to service it, you'll need to go around the vertical cylinder, not over it.
