    Project CB690 (KTM 690 engine in a CB550f frame)

    I come from a MX back ground. When the bikes started to use rear discs many of the calipers were mounted on top (to stay out of the mud) if the stay was strong enough all was well, if not it would bend which was usually harmless. Most are now locked in place on the swing arm near the axel

    Kawasaki Z650 Seventies Special

    I like it, defiantly worth the effort. It might look even better with a shorter pipe before the silencer. Going to be a great bike , looks great and lots of go!!!

    Post a pic of your latest purchase

    Hi folks, Right now all my spare time (and money!) is spent on refurbing my house boat. My Café styled special sits neglected on my bench, the CRF has been in bits for nearly a year, so I need another time consuming thing like I need a hole in my head, but............ I emptied my bank account...

    Yamaha YZ250/WR450 Turbo Tracker/Supermoto

    Here you go. Obviously I haven't mounted it yet, I will cut off the tags on the front and make my own mounts. I have just enough room for a small fan on the back

    Yamaha YZ250/WR450 Turbo Tracker/Supermoto

    No problem. Next time I visit my garage, maybe tomorrow, I will measure it and get some pics for you. I bought a cheap Chinese knock off from ebay with a 40mm core

    Yamaha YZ250/WR450 Turbo Tracker/Supermoto

    I'm building a special using a DZR400 as a base. I am going to fit a CR250 rad across the front. It is more square than the SV (a little narrower), fits great above the header and just clears the triple clamps. It feeds top left and exits bottom right so fit easy fit with water pipes. Great...

    FRANKENHONDA II the 1982 DOHC CB 750F2 Build

    Wonderful looking bike. The oil cooler looks stock, definitely does not have that modified / after thought look. Great work. The holes in the rear disk help with aesthetics too

    Texas Two Step Taco

    I have also been following from almost the beginning and really enjoying the progress. I grew up racing 2 stroke MX and have tuned many of my own engines. In the 90's I enjoyed some success in the British championship. I do understand the science going on here but I am suffering some brain ache...

    1986 Yamaha RZ350, Canadian Model

    I had a RD350 YPVS in the UK back when I was 19. It was the go to for all hooligans on a budget. I loved it. Fork seals were a problem, mainly because I kept bottoming out the forks. The engine was easy to work on and tune. I had a lot of fun for little money, I hope this is true for you. Mine...

    1980 GS550E + 2000 Katana 750

    Pin striping the tail I think would improve the looks, tying the body work together
