TANK TEST



how to have a big engine...

MOTORMOUNT part 3




now it's possible to move the frame so with the help of Steph, yesterday we've installed the bike at the right distance from the floor. now i've an idea of the fork tubes lenght needed, at this time i've machined two "extensions" with some old tubes. next step will be the top bracket, not easy to do something clean and simple, let's go for a brainstorming.........

MOTORMOUNT part 2






well, after a lot of wasted time due at some various craps and indecisions, i've grinded another set of brackets, without folding, i've cut the frame so it does'nt matter now. they're in stainless steel, thickness 6 mm. it's not totally finished but it works.

FRONT END part 1



not a big evolution this week, i've bought the fork bearings and installed the bearing cups. provisory mount of an sportster fork, no other choice at this time. little mishap with the front brackets, they're done but need folding due at an inversion of the tubes in the frame, one more time crap start.
