Meanwhile work on the Honda CB72/77 engine is progressing well, its now got a homemade billet block which will take it out to 400cc, while its Eaton supercharger is being remade with matching billet end cases and centre case, the latter is being made at the moment. No performance reason for making a new case, but it'll look cool..

This project has been waiting for space to work on it, but its finally coming together. One point that isn't obvious is that the crank centre has been moved 4mm inside the engine to allow for the 400cc big bore conversion. That meant machining out the crank bearing mounts which also meant using bigger / strong crank bearings. A lot of work to say the least.

Found a couple of old photos of the bike when my mate first built it in the early 80s..

Here's a video of us talking about progress with the bike.. starts here... since I made the video, Jeff has been busy making a tool to fold sheet aluminium which is needed to make a new fuel tank for the bike.
