Worked on the Death racer over the weekend and have some updates... I started to dummy fit thins back up again in preparation for the custom exhaust that will be made and the clearance issues I will have. Everything went back in sweet but I know I will work up a hot sweat once I have a freshly painted frame and swing hahaha

Started with the wheels..



Moved on to the engine... I fitted it my self, wasn't that bad but when it goes back in for the final time I will call a mate for help. I will then also have some one blame when shit hits the fan.











Next up will be to fit the Wilbers shock I have ordered (3 week wait or so) and ship the bike off to the welder/mechanic. Get the custom exhaust made, ride height set, cowl, weld in the frame braces, rebuild the front suspension. Might throw around a few ideas with him also and see what else we can come up with. All in all, a productive day.

Last one with the tank fitted and raised about 8mm at the back for added clearance for the exhaust.

Thanks mate! Well, more for looks than anything. If it add strength it's a bonus but I can see the trusty 65 giving the frame a hard time. I think it looks killer!!

Does look good though!

Trav, I purchased these a while ago an I honestly have forgotten the pricing. I also got a few other things also from a few different places at the same time but from memory, shipping didn't stand out at the time. I will try to look back of I have any information of the purchase.

Yeah, right.
I had been following the build thread of Sparkymoto with an fab outcome. It's BMW as well. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=535890

He also gave me lots of advices for my CX650 cafe project.
Just curious how you plan your final product looks like.

Ohh I have not seen that one. I will have a better read after work.

Final product for my one will be very lean and black in colour!

Great.
I have sketched my Cafe racer prior to chop the bike off, as below. However, I have changed the design day after day, depending on the actual fabrication as well as what kind of materials and parts I have.



Or you can read the full thread. Don't know if it could give you some late extra idea.
