Twin plug head is completed and awaiting my collection [ with the rest of the '81 engine ].
The good news is that the guy who did the deed for me borrowed the relevant jigs from the instigator - and was then given permission to duplicate the jigs for his own use.
He won't be creating a production line anytime soon - but has the wherewithall if anyone's interested ? The only problem is that he no longer has access to his machine tools etc. as he's changed jobs. However, he is getting a quote from a local friendly machine shop to see if it's viable to get the conversions done.
I have decided on the Norvil 1/2 fairing.
Progress looking good CC ! I recently went through the caliper / brake refurb game - only to ditch it all with the swap to the Grimeca and XS650 drum rear . I'm following your rearset installation with interest as my bike is [ has ! ] morphed into that 60's Cafe Racer now rather than a Flat Tracker. Keep those pix coming - inspirational !!
beachcomber said:Many thanx for the pix / measurements. One final - if I may be a PITA. :
Here's the point I need the drive sprocket to rear sprocket alignment measurement from. IOW - I need to know how far out from the casing the sprocket c/l is. That's just so I can roughly position the rear wheel and sprocket to get spacers made. I'll allow for shimming for true alignment once the "real" engine is in the chassis. Your second pic down showing the drive sprocket from above is virtually it, but you can see on my dummy engine - I don't have that outer case where the drive sprocket is !
