Tank showed up today, there are issues but think I can make it work.

I might do the whole motor position over, not happy with a bunch of things... will evaluate over the weekend.

looks like the motor needs to have the top moved forward, so its in the 12:30-1:00 position

Exactly what I am thinking, what you can't see in the photo is the oil drain on the side and the trans shift detente bolt in the back which I was trying to make accessible but think I might have to make some sacrifices.

I'm glad I don't have someone that close. I'd go broke.

Guy at Cone engineering, Rich Craig was very helpful. We traded some emails and pics then talked today and I ordered all the parts needed for the exhaust including a 12" reverse cone muffler which will look period correct. He as well as a few other guys said the dual exhaust would hurt the performance over stepping the cool factor... can't wait to get it!

So..... After looking at motor position and seeing pictures of another one that a friend had done it just didn't look right? Additional issues were that the carb was going to be very tight to fit even with a new manifold machined, kickstarter was going to hit the peg very early in stroke and the tank I bought would not fit because the petcock would hit the head no matter what, so..... start again.

This is motor as it sits now,


It bothered me that the "HONDA" on the case wasn't level, not for looks but correct orientation in the frame.

I left the front motor mounts on the motor to stabilize while I repositioned and rolled the motor forward and raised the rear, seems to look better in the frame and carb has lots more room, kickstarter is much better, tank is better, exhaust works but closer to fender.

Now you've got chain/swingarm issues. Mod the front of the cradle of the frame and lower the motor.

You may have to settle for moving the pegs forward to accommodate the kickstarter. With the motor where it is now , how is the reach to the shift lever from the pegs? Looks a little long.

I am moving the pegs down anyway so not really concerned with kickstarter, carb,tank and overall position is what is driving this...
Shift lever is fine and that is very easy to shorten.

Looking at the countershaft, swing arm pivot area, may I suggest that you may be better off grafting the XR frame cradle to the RM frame, or use the XR chassis and convert the RM suspension over to the XR. Either way it will be a lot of work. I've built a couple of Frankenbikes over the years and there is allways some kind of challenge to them.

This is the last one I did.
