All sorted PC, so he tells me.
Motor moved over a little, drive is fitted to the ZX rim
I tell you, this guy is talented :D
This machine is a work of backyard art
Time to start playing with the Vmax.
Oh and maybe I should finish the trike too!

Easy Fella, you'll pop a vein.

Engine is right side shaft drive. Mounted the engine 25 mm over to the right, had a "boss" made to fit in the rim, and machined the boss down until the final drive (diff) was in line with the drive shaft and the tyre was centred with frame.

Rear subframe was widened 25mm each side, and swingarm stretched 75mm.
Cut made to backbone to lower engine height and get sump level.

Need to make longer engine hangers, re-install rear shock brackets, weld small "disc" in backbone cut, should be finished in a day or 200.

No, the tank he has will mean someone else has a bike with a shorter range than my Vmax :shock:
Keep going, Bearman. Almost there!

Thanks Guys,

It's taking way to long. So for the time being (and cost) I'll whack to CX Custom tank back on. Just so I can get it on the road.

Glen, I might get the same mileage as your Vmax, but my 50 HP wont keep up with yours.....

Mmmm.......a Vmax engine :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Pie cut frame, tacked on rear shock mounts, no seat, no bars.
More or less finished set up.
