That almost looks like a bike from mule.  I love the look of the champion seat, its a bit more work to uae but looks good.

Not much been happening over the last week because I'm still waiting on my yokes to be machined out which is holing me up on building the other parts I want to start working on because without the forks in the frame I can't really work out the geometry I want for the rest of the bike. So I've been playing on solidworks working out a rough idea for a new swingarm. I struggled to find any geometry set up advice anywhere and ended up messaging Survivor customs on instagram and fair play to him, he gave me some advice so hopefully I can use that as basic dimensions and then I can work from there.

Here's a couple of screenshots of the swingarm I'd like to build so hopefully I can get this moving in the next week. I'm going to convert the bike to twin shock because I like the old school look more and also it will let me run pod filters, which is a pain on XL's otherwise because the mono shock is so close to the carbs!​


Let me know what you think

Finally got my yokes back from the machine shop. I'm really happy the way they turned out

They will be cleaned up eventually but right now while I mock everything up I'll leave them and clean everything at the end. I got the yokes fitted and trialled the forks and I'm liking the way they look. I think when it's got the number board on it's gonna look awesome.

Fitted the wheel, used a standard spindle but it's not long enough now because the forks are wider than standard so it'll have to make a new spindle. I've ordered some high tensile EN19T bar.

I went to the national motorcycle mechanics show in Stafford this weekend and bought a tank it's of a K500 Kawasaki. I trialled it on the roller chassis, but I think it's too long and a little bit too big so I'm gonna look around for another one, at least I've got an idea and size to go off
I just couldn't help myself really to see where I was going.
I also checked the geometry of the frame while it was set up an the moment I'm pretty happy. I think it's pretty close to where I want to be. Hopefully soon I'll be able to start the real fabrication!
