I built this frame about 3 years ago.
My mate recently sent me pics of the bike finished and on the road.
It's running a FJ1100 motor, converted to belt drive (which ran a serious out rigger bearing) with a 360mm rear tyre!!!!
One off billet rear wheel, by Taylors over £2,000.00!!!
All machining by Steve.

So what is the pont of the side stand?
Doesn't that tyre do the job?

The sharp bits might prove problematic..
:shock:
Now that's a big rear tyre (stolen from a jumbo jet)
Time to start playing with the Vmax.
Oh and maybe I should finish the trike too!

Figured that.
My first 750 rigid was from a guy I knew who was a Brit expat.
Evidently built a VW trike in a week, then rode it around unoticed for a year or 2.
Laws were not, I think, his strong point..
