I picked up a KZ1000 rolling chassis a bit ago and I'm using the forks and mag wheels from it. Same diameter, I'm going to use the 750 trees and the 1000 forks are a bit of an upgrade, dual disc. Other than that, my thoughts head towards a nice USD fork off something much newer. What were you thinking BC?
It looks like I will be building TWO bikes now. I can't face another year [ running out of time !! ] without a bike on the road.
Realistically the Glemseck project is probably 12 months away - funds mainly as I do not want to cut corners.
However , the original Tangerine Dream project is pretty well there funding wise - with milder approach engine wise. Just the Weber conversion, high level pipes and with the cosmetics already pictured I have virtually everything I need.
The Glemseck bike is definitely morphing into a bit of a dual purpose race / road machine, and as much as I would like another set of Grimeca hubs etc, I can't afford it - so that means either swap wheels back and forth [ ! ], or make a decision as to which bike gets the Grimeca / Borranis and the "something else" for the other !
I do have a spare frame / swingarm coming courtesy of Kaptain Kwack over on the Lonesome Twin forum - in addition to a late engine complete with twin plug head [ eventually ! ] - well actually 4 plug, but you know what I mean !
So the plan is to move the "TD" off the bench and on to the build ramp and put the Glemseck project on the bench - but just as a frame / engine combo to set up the oil cooler. external oil pump, turbo, Nitrous etc.
That's where the alternate fork enquiry comes in. KZ 750 Twin parts are ferociously expensive here in the UK - and even with KK's sympathetic pricing - still adds too much to my meagre funding pot.
I'm not really a fan of rear discs - aesthetically, and in truth I very rarely use a rear brake !
So that's my dilemma I guess, I would love to have one last 60's style Cafer Racer, but the Flat Tracker can be finished that much sooner.
