That's sweet!

I think I have an idea for my supercharger drive as well... I think we shoot back and forth a few of those ideas via e-mail again, that might actually work for you on the Kwak.

now that is going to look cool with a supercharger on it

Yep it'll take brass cojones to ride it with a supercharged virago 250 motor.

HAVE YOU SEEN THE BRAKES ???????????????????????

Actually, I'm planning on running a trans disc brake, just have to remember NOT to pull the clutch in when I brake !

Actually my pal Adrian has THREE spare 1000cc TR1 engines [ chain drive ]............................... noooooo, that would be silly, maybe.

TJ, remember, some of us are getting close to 100hp out of the ol' TR1 lump. Now I am not one, who is to be called a spoilsport, but...   ;)

Supercharged 250 on the other hand... They are stupidly cheap, spare parts come straight from Guanzhou's finest and if you ask me, 40-50hp in a 1930ies frame with girder forks and drum brakes is probably enough excitement for a day or two.

Actually this little bugger was the inspiration for the baby Virago powerplant ....... looks at home in a small chassis / bike. One of our German cousins was responsible. 8)

Greg ...... 125 / 250 Virago lumps are not silly cheap in the UK any more ! Expect to pay north of £300 for anything these days. A few years ago - a complete bike would cost that !

I always have the spare Weber KZ 750 engine ? ;)

I have asked my French pal to put an offer in for the Motobecane - I think it is on a pure sale site - not an auction like E-Bay.

Neat bike, what's up with the offset chain drive?  Necessary?

NO ..... that was a clever ploy for a jackshaft to take the trans disc brake ! You can just spot it on the other view [ exhaust side ] Like I said, just have to remember NOT to brake while the clutch is disengaged !

back to the main plot ...... what a difference a day makes - or to be precise - half a day ! ;D

As well as the obvious progress in the pix, the blower manifolding / mountings have been worked out as well as the carb intake for the SU - which I guarantee will make you go weak at the knees ! ;). The exhaust has been swung over to the other side - and will also look the bollox.

Also rough mounting points for the seat and "tank". The seat is sitting 2" high in the pix as it's currently over the tie down straps. The Tarrozi fork brace is total bollox ............. nowhere near - after I had to order it specially - and of course pay a premium.

There is loads of room for the fuel cell [ under frame ] which again has worked out a treat. Room for TWO NOS bottles hidden under the "tank".

A lot of other "whatif" ideas have also been crystallized.

Thanx to my pal Brian - who is barely well enough to move into the garage, never mind carry out the precision fab work.

So YES, it will be Eaton blower now, anyone want a new CT20 turbo !!!!
