The Plan-

1428cc supercharged Light weight animal.
Daytime mot.
no lights (Except for a brake light) .
No frills (Except for a supercharger)
And no frame :D .(Well! not in the first pic anyway)
And everything (nearly) done in the shed with my large selection of hammers :shock:


Image

Zed motor,now a stressed member ( like me :lol: ) squeezed into 750 Zeph frame with the aid of a hacksaw and vaseline.
05 zx10r wheels forks and suzuki srad swinger and wooden mainstand

Image

On its wheels.
Frame braced with rear suspension fitted, swinger changed to gixer 1000k4.

Image

Subframe mounts welded on
Image

Alloy subframe and (roadsign) seat fitted
Image

Footrests fitted and fuel tank is a work in progress
Image

PETROL TANK - PROGRESS SO FAR.

Started out life as a wayward road sign :wink: .

Image

Upper shell welded inside
Image

And out
Image


TODAY.

Drilled a hole in the rear of the tank shell
Image

And turned up this alloy bobbin (to take a rubber mounting strap)
Image


Which was pressed in and welded on from the inside
Image

For a neat appearence
Image


Image


Also spent hours with the wet and dry polishing out the weld seams.
Image


Next job on the list is to weld in a base and make a front mount

(still plenty of opportunity for things to go horribly wrong so fingers crossed)

Good to see you've lost the wooden main stand in preference to a conventional side stand. Looking good... :up

Woohoo :D .
Managed to weld in the base without it all melting in a heap.

Image


Green outline is where i'll weld on a fuel baffle box which will hang between the subframe rails and provide a mount for the tap and a bit of extra capacity

REAR LIGHT MOUNT.

Little bit more progress this week.

Made up this alloy plate which will hold the rear light and form somewhere to hide the battery .

Image

Image

After welding it into the seat unit the welds were blended in so it looks like one piece.
Image

And also forms the other half of the undertray

Image

Light unit is ZX7R

Image

Image



Also had a swift session on the lathe and finished off the adjustable subframe struts.

Image

As well as making up a threaded mounting stub

Image


To take the fuel tanks front mount

Will be the race flush filler type maybe single maybe twin.
Depends on what i can lay my hands on.
Was thinking of making my own again but - been there/done that - so i've put a wanted ad on a few forums and am waiting to see if owt turns up.
