Ha! I've inspired a few people in the past, but it usually ended up with citations being issued or trips in the back of a squad car! Good luck with the build and can't wait to see it progress.

A sneak preview of one of our latest projects here in the shop. Mongrel II, or M2 for short....when 250cc just isn't enough, a 1984 CR500. Like they say, go big or go home!




Or perhaps we should name it the Death Wish.

It's amazing what a bottle of "The Godfather" brings out of your melon.  ;D

Wow, thank you so much for all the enthusiastic (and many!) replies already folks. Super cool to have Charlie and Ted here in the thread as well. Ted PMed me a few tips and pics of their bike that'll definitely be helpful for me.

 It is has been too long since I had a big project like this, and my real job has been driving me insane lately. I figured the best cure was a new project in the shop to occupy some of my time and the space in between my ears :)



More pics and information soon as it comes together!

I remember the picture of Pops with the pipe,classic! Looks like you fellers have the skills. Primary gearing for quads are short, so you'll have to go big on the countershaft and small on the rear sprocket. But you already know that. Can't wait to see the progress.

Small little update - over the weekend I worked in the shop and did some clean up and organizing since its been 2+ years since I had a real project in there. Degreased and pressure washed the frame, got it up on the work table, rolled the SV650 rear end into place. Whacked off the bottom linkage tabs of the frame. Swingarm fits width wise in the frame very nicely - minimal bushing required. Will need to reduce down to a 15mm swing-arm pivot bolt (same as frame).

The biggest challenge I had not really noticed before is that the SV650 rear shock and linkage is offset to the left, which is terrible for my carburetor and air filter clearance. Especially with the big motor I made, I barely stuffed it all in there with a center mount shock, and it should have really been offset to the right. I suppose the SV is offset to the left to make room for the exhaust collector in that region on the bike. I'm currently leaning towards just welding a new mount onto the swingarm and going linkageless with another shock. Utilizing that stuff is going to be pretty tricky with the frame placement.

I'm waiting on a 520 conversion rear sprocket for the SV back wheel, and then I'm gonna set my motor in and see what I need to do on my chain alignment before I make any other decisions with the shock/linkage scenario. I'd like to keep the linkage and stuff if I can, but its in a terrible terrible place.
