FrankenStein Updates

Moving forward on FrankenStein, pronounced: Fronk-in-Steene for legal purposes. Hey you don't want to piss off the Germans, or the Austrians, or whomever made the movie. TrackMaster Triple Clamps made and hopefully a complete front end by next week.

So, here where I am so far; My 2000 Honda XR 650R bought new in 2000, with the following parts carefully disected from donor bikes found in graveyards. 1999 CB 600 F-2 wheels mated to 1985 cush hub, machined to fit. 2004 CB F-4 forks and Calipers, 2006 CB F-4 rear shock in place of stock. Sub Frame is currently from a 2006 Honda CR450X, I need a place to store the battery, Seat isn't designed yet. Tank will remain stock but radiator shrouds will be cut to allow for modified exhaust running under frame and mated to "Yosh" Tri-Oval. Radiators will need to be shortened and made thicker to get the same cooling capicity. Next on the list is a Euro-650R electric starter assembly-frickin' expensive but will be worth the money in the end. Anybody have an extra Euro case set for sale- I'm in need. FrankeStein would be so much better with electrics. Stator has been done by Ricky-Stator so juice shouldn't be a problem. More pics as I get closer.

KTM-2014 500 EXC, 2014 690R, BMW- 2015 F800 GSA, 2012 K1600 GTL, Ducati-2015 Hypermotard SP, and 16 other motorcycles in various stages of restoration.
