You know when things work out....well, I've just had a most interesting evening on the Honduki stroker project.

I spent my time aligning the parts I scored Saturday.

Swingarm - pivot boss width 215, frame internal dimension 205. losing 10 mm off the s/a will be a breeze.
Shocks - Rear shock top mounts will need extending (hope this is OK to do'?). L = 390mm approx.
Frame will need clearancing to avoid s/a contact, but I have a plan ;)
Forks - measured the stancions = 36mm, they went straight on, the stem is the correct length, new tapered bearing required. Steering stops wil work too.
Bars fit and are just right :)

Wheels: F - sits nicely with room for the disc. Caliper match shouldn't be too tricky. 20mm spacers required and axle.
R - Fits inside the s/a (loads of space) and will allow a wider section tyre and higher profile too. 30 & 60mm spacer needed but I still need an axle caliper mount bracket.
Sprocket - aligns nicely approx where the primary drive would sit (TBC).

So all good, which is unbelievable, I'm chuffed I have to say :)

I bloody love the internet  ;D

Facebook has it's detractors but, used in the right way it's brilliant.

Scoping a tank for the WTF200/2 project I reckoned a CB200 tank would fit the bill. Like the shape and size, think it'll squeeze onto the 400/4 frame and be a touch short, so I can have a seat to suit.

Being slabsided I'll not look too wide either and I like the slightly softened angular shape. The padded strip is staying along with the flip cap.

So, I'm a member of the VJMC on FB and posted if anyone had a CB200 tank in reaonable nick I'd be interested. Almost immediately a member posted images of a cleanish, straightish tank complete with padding, cap & badges (no petcock, no problemo).

Offered at a bargain price especially complete, so immediate PP payment and he's posting it to me...hurrah.





Clean inside too.



Can't wait to throw it on the frame and see what it looks like.

Attended a major custom bike event yesterday, loads of fantastic bikes from established builders, both British and European custom shops.

Guess what? Hardly any 2smokers in the mix, when I say hardly any I mean maybe one or two. I tried to spot them but they were scarce.

So, I'm convinced my WTF200/2 smoker project will be 'different' to say the least, make me happy :)

I love it when a plan works out ;)



I had an inkling the CB200 tank would suit my project.




What do you guys think, looks right I reckon.

Thanks Popeye. I bag a bargin when I can and play the waiting game where possible as well as being a little flexible on what parts I want....but, I know I will have to spend proper money at some point...tyres being one expense I can think of.

Bike swap meets - I love them :)

why thank you sir. I am rather pleased with how it's shaping up, given it's just a few parts thrown together ;)

Made some room in my man pit for a worktable so the engine can be torn down.

Head off and pistons off. Bores don't look too bad but not 100%. Clean pistons and new rings might sort it? Or rebore, new pistons etc hmmm?



Dirty little shit...



Think these light scores will be OK. 2smokers smoke right?





I'm not sure what I'm looking at, does it look complete on this side ? Any advice about these engines would be great, thankx.

Gears select.



Just need to get the flywheel off now.
