Digging the seat, nice work.


Thanks.  I'm calling it Ugly Seat 1.0.

Hey CC,

you might have let me into your thread link !!!!!!!

After reading about your 2 engines I decided to have a trawl through to find if there was more info ......... and there is.

Just found your build thread .......... lots of useful info / pix. I'll be dropping in on a regular basis now!

Thanks Beach!    Glad to have you onboard.    I've got a bit of momentum back on this one after setting it aside for the winter.      I have a set of KZ1000 mag wheels I picked up that I'm considering going with.  I prefer a rear disc to the drum but it would mean (to me) building new rearsets.    Still thinking about that one...

So - are there any other Lonesome Twins hereabouts I should look into ?

CC - just got off the phone with Kaptain Kwak over on the Lonesome Twin forum. He says send him a contact and he'll deal with it straight away.

Send him your userid and real name.

Probably worth repeating from my Tangerine Dream thread for any KZ 750 Twin freaks who drop in here .....................

Piggy back oil pump to feed [ in this case ] an oil cooler.

Yep, still working on this bike too.   I did a quick mock up to see if I was going to like the KZ1000 mags on this bike.  Yes I do.   It might be a tight squeeze for the rear, I need to bolt it up and measure.      Also, sorry about the image quality, the lens on my phone camera has been permanently "modified" by a certain 3 yr old grandchild who got his hands on it.
