Its been a few weeks since I posted about my own "Freaks" progress..so here's a bit of candy for those of you whom are interested. I'm working on three monsters at the same time since parts searching on flea-bay tends to take some time. It seems it would be easier to rob graves.
This is what Frankenstein Started out as
This is how it looks today. 1999 CB 600 F2 wheels with 1985 cush hub to allow fitment in stock swing-arm, machined .0030, sprocket machined down to accept 520 chain. 2005 CB 600 F4 rear shock is currently being fabbed to fit. Front- 2001 CB F3 forks with F# calipers mater to F2 wheel. Minor machining to spacers to turn smoothly, Triple clamps are custom machines using stock XR bearing set and stem.
Freak # 2- The Barnsdorffer Special. Don't ask about the name. It just showed up in my head, so I found something and came up with a concept. Still not sure why. Created this to start my project.
2006 Honda XR 650 L
Here she is today. By the time you see these pics, it will now be a "hard-tail" instead of suspended.
Front forks from my XR 650R with machined triple clamps. Rad Eagle Wheels mated to 18" Excels. Tires are Coker "Firestone Indian's". Motor cases have been ground to remove any logo or emblem and are now black crinkle powder coated. I am in the process of adding fins to the head and cylinder, then they will be black with the edges ground. Engine mods are stage-2 cam and porting, piston, and Falicon rod with balanced crank. Pics coming in a week or so. The next phase of this one will be veeery interesting.
1972 Yamaha XS 650- Shell Thuet 750 Track-Master Framed Street Tracker
I bought this motor in a stock framed Street Tracker conversion from a Full race bike. I ran it about 110-115 mph- with not front brake on the street until the butt pucker got ahold of me. Updates as soon as I get the swing-arm and wheel set fabbed.
Hoping this gets others going. I know there are more of us.
