Any chance this thing will be rideable by Mid-Ohio?
I'm going to eat your brains and gain your knowledge.

No it won't. I just don't have the time. The goal is to have it completly done for next for riding season. That way I can take my time and build it right and the way I want it. I put alot of miles on this bike four-five years ago and it was completly stock. When I'm done it should feel like a new bike. The engine needs to be freshened up. It started to burn a little oil. That will be wintertime for that.

I machined them on cnc vertical mill after hours at work. If I had a cnc at home my wife would hate me, I would never be in the house. Maybe when the house is paid for I can afford a good used one.

Poo! Replication goes out the window then. Looks like I'm back to angle grinder and drill press.


See the condensed version of my full build on my blog!

Did a little mock up this weekend.



Looks like there might be some interference with the carb/intake duct ...
someone built it anyway ...

When I took the pic, I just clamped the mount up there. When I actually weld it on it will be about an inch higher. It will be very close. I have another complete SR I have been taking measurements from. If I measured right, I should be able to make it all work.

I see ... if it's too tight you could perhaps locate the suspension a little further to the left!?
Btw., nice carrier you've machined!

Best regards
Sven

The air pod I have one my other SR looks like it might hit the shock if it was on this bike but thats minor stuff.
Hey, I raced a Sven at Weedsport,NY like maybe 6 or 7 years ago. Is this the same Sven?

Nope, I've only been roadracing my XT here in europe...
Again very nice metalwork in your latest pic, I'm looking
forward to see more of this!
Btw., are you using a front wheel for rear?

Kind regards and good luck
Sven

19" front and rear. It's the set up from my other SR I used to dirt track. I'm not positive what I'm going to use for tires yet. These are not D.O.T.

These tires look like K180s to me, I thought they were street legal?!
