So - change of title, change of direction !

See previous post for the reason d'etre. Part of anyway. Bottom line is that there's a slight swerve in the direction. The rolling chassis remains as is - maybe clip-ons and 7R race seat,  oh and that Metisse / Norvil half fairing oh and maybe a 7R style tank .......... But essentially good to go.

Engine is growing a GT15 turbo - blowing through the 40dcoe and manifold I already have.

Is it still a Flat Tracker? Or morphing into a Cafe Racer? Or even a Special !!

There will now be some additional engine work to upgrade the oil supply ( cooler and turbo requirements ) as well as a twin spark plug conversion.

Such enthusiasm!

I didn't care for the round number plate on a tracker anyway  :-X

Looking forward to more updates.

Thanx for the encouragement, I' m beginning to get back my previous enthusiasm that had waned in the past 18 months.

This new direction gets me into the engine innards, my favourite place ! It also involves some lateral and intuitive thinking to resolve the inevitable issues I will encounter breaking new ground.

I rigged the GT15 turbo up - perfect, could have been made for the job.

Can't wait to get this puppy finished and fired up. Yep, mojo is back folks.

Don't you love it when the plan you didn't ACTUALLY HAVE - WORKS !!

Looks miniscule alongside my T3........... :o

However a lot of bikers use them over here [ especially the EU ] and apparently they spool up like a "Banshee"  according to der_nanno !!

Packaging couldn't be better / simpler. Cuts down dramatically on fab / machining / favours front. Win, win situation. 8) 

Think I'll have to make some brackets to support the turbo, as the exhaust [ which traditionally supports the unit ] will not be up to the job / marginal. No biggie, just need to build in some flexibility into the mounts - back to the frame.

There were lots of blown ( Shorrock mainly ) BSA and Triumph twins around in my day, mostly on Sprinters ( prior to Dragsters ) but a few did see street duty.

One of my Triumph kneeler outfits ( road ridden ) had a C75B Shorrock blower - that was silly quick but kept eating pistons due to lack of retard at the top end!

Moving ahead ............ The head ( boom, boom ) is getting the twin plug treatment next month - courtesy of KK.

Der- Nanno is schooling me in on blowing through the Weber  - all looking good.

In reality the only difference externally is the addition of the turbo to my Weber set up.

I dropped the 7R styled tank from my abandoned "Vindicator" TR1 cafe racer on the frame - doesn't look half bad.

Just need to sort out the auxiliary oil supply for the oil cooler / turbo.

There's a guy that does a reasonably priced Avon Metisse 1/2 fairing ( Ragged Edge racing ) with screen for around £120. We'll see.

Glad I can be of help. Should you run into packaging issues, there's also in-tank fuel pumps, which make the whole plumbing a lot easier... The ones for a Harley Sportster should do the trick in terms of flow. Unfortunately the TR1 fuel tank is too narrow, so I'll have to go for an external one on my old Turbobike.
