You guys are toooo funny.

Mahoney, XJ would make a good flat tracker looking bike. Cut it in half and get started.

Thanks, Wheedle!!


I made some progress. I like the look of the Ducati trellis frames and tried to put a little bit of that into the design without adding a bunch of weight. I might fill the triangles with some sheet so that I have a place to hide the electrics. I don't like the looks of the subframe from the CR500 and may change it when I get the plastics and tank back from paint...or not, it gets hidden when the number plates and seat are bolted up. Gotta come up with a battery box next. I'll spend the weekend making templates out of cardboard for all the gussets and stuff, it's easier to cut with the plasma at work.


Progress:




The odd looking bits at the tank mounts are just shims to hold things while I welded the tabs on.

It was mentioned earlier about stuffing the bigger engine into the CR500 chassis. I looked at that for about 1 minute...the CR500 frame is spindley compared to the Bandit...the CR was mostly 3/4" or less tubing and the Bandit is a perimeter frame in inch and a quarter...needed for the weight and the way I pound on bikes.

Plain and simple.

Yeah, it'll do it. My goal is to try the bike on the Sheetiron 300 in May. I'll have to see what kind of MPG's I can get out of it...it does hold 5 gallons of gas in the stock tank.

I've got some plating and tube work to do in that area yet, but I'm holding off until I figure out the jackshaft placement. Yeah, a graft was the easiest...I'm not an engineer, but I can glue metal together.

This is awsome!

I'll keep an eye on this build. I have an FZR600 complete in the shed, and it needs a fork rebuild. I also just happen to have an XR650 front set of forks and triples in there too. Id love to do what your doing to make myself a 90Hp trail bike.

Pity i have no skills to combine the two.
