I may inquire and it's a short ride to see so for $500 "ask" I may find out if it's grenaded or just something simple, these are getting some attention and I may be able to flip it and have a little fun tinkering 🤠

Wow, that's a steal ............. At least £1500 in the UK !

Wonder what the "hole" can be if it runs so well  ???

I wonder who would put a KZ400 lump in a KZ750b chassis?

The bright sunshine and 10 degree + weather that greeted me Sunday morning was an encouragement to get in the shed and do some of the mundane measuring and generally talking to myself [ I'm a good listener ].

The TR1 "Vindicator" tank is a no go as it will require virtually starting again.  :'(

That leaves me with a bit of a styling dilemma - stick to the current Flat Tracker look - or full on 60's style Cafe Racer. Apart from the tank - I have all the relevant bits and now there's something of a competitive element creeping in - maybe clip ons would be better ! Also - I deeply regret having to part with the Vindicator project - that WAS going to be my own particular swansong  tribute to my youth, so another sixties styled and influenced Cafe Racer might be appropriate. Fortunately I have all the other parts either already fitted [ Tarrozi rear sets ] or on the shelf - the famous 7R seat and some ace EARLY Tarozzi clip ins. That just leaves the tank - has to be 7R / G50 style - maybe Metisse. 8)

I've drawn up the schematics for the proposed oil cooler / turbo oil supply and I even tripped over a box of unused stainless hoses and anodised alloy fittings left over from my car manufacturing days. That'll hopefully save me a few pennies. There is also a box of  NOS fittings and solenoids SOMEWHERE left over from my Drag Racing days - but I suspect they have gone AWOL over the years.

I also had a final think about spacers etc for the Grimeca front wheel and spoked XS500 rear. I'm pretty happy I've come up with a simple solution which will mean the very minimum of outwork for my long suffering mates !   ;)

Ah, that makes sense.   I figured something like that but was in a hurry and didn't read enough, my bad.  I have two of these motors for my build just in case.  Neither will be as ambitious as yours.  I always forget about the lonesome twin site.  I should probably try to get a login over there and check it out again.   

Hey CC,,

you might have let me into your thread link !!!!!!!

After reading about your 2 engines I decided to have a trawl through to find if there was more info ......... and there is.

Just found your build thread .......... lots of useful info / pix. I'll be dropping in on a regular basis now!

I emailed the admin for lonesome twins.  He replied but I'm still waiting on him for site access.

Trial fitted the rocker box from my original engine to get an idea of how much space I might [ or might not ] have. The coils will not be living in their normal place above the engine - so I'll be ditching the top " plates" in favour of a rod end [ Rose joint ] stay. The fuel pump might find it's way into that space.

Need to do a bit of swift EBay selling to get Dyna coils, fuel pressure sensors, etc., etc.

I need to make something like this to feed oil cooler / turbo.

Out of the box suggestions but. Can you build a stand alone oil system for the snail? A quart size tank a small cooler (adding an additional quart) maybe run a belt driven pump nested in an extended cover over the oil filter housing? Big idea but maybe scratch it on paper???

Man, this really grabbed my attention.  I've been wondering how to do an external oil cooler setup on these motors.  I'm still waiting on the admin at lonesome twins.  I emailed him back last night.   I'd like to read up on the details of this mod.

TJ, just a thought, I have had cafe racers and vintage racers for decades and I keep thinking I should build one last perfect one - just like you.  So I built a Dunstall GT750 and it's gorgeous and now it's finally almost done, I can't wait to get rid of it and do something different.  It's a beautiful bike, but actually not what I want.

I find that trying something different is way more fun and a street tracker is probably the best custom bike to build and ride.  The more relaxed riding position is just more fun because it's more practical.  I love clipons etc on the race track but I'm over that look for the street.

If it were mine, I'd make it into something unique and by definition different and a US styled 750 twin tracker type bike may hit those buttons for you too.

The bright sunshine and 10 degree + weather that greeted me Sunday morning was an encouragement to get in the shed and do some of the mundane measuring and generally talking to myself [ I'm a good listener ].

The TR1 "Vindicator" tank is a no go as it will require virtually starting again.  :'(

Apart from the tank - I have all the relevant bits and now there's something of a competitive element creeping in - maybe clip ons would be better !
