Little update. Welded and cleaned one side...







Got a bandit 1200 motor. Needs a good scrub but should clean up nicely.



And a lovely set of custom rearsets from http://grumpy1260suzukispares.co.uk

UPDATE... (Itís been awhile!)


Iíve cleaned the engine up abit (but not alot!) and have it in place so i can make the mounts.

The rear shock relocation is now complete, along with some additional bracing. Super happy with it.



Iíve had to have the sprocket carrier machined so the wheel can sit central.



I finished off the tank/tail shell and have also made the subframe. The 2 pieces are now connected via a hinge and supported by 2 mini gas struts. These will lift the shell from 45 degrees to vertical but are mainly in place just to keep the shell safely in its vertical position whilst access is required.





Im also playing around with ideas for holding down the front of the shell. Quite liking this style of latch either side, bit of a feature. Thoughts?



Iíve also made the fuel cell, well, almost... i ran out of gas! This has a channel for wiring and a flush fitting fuel cap. Once welded, Il be filling it with foam baffle cubes. The tank will hold approx. 13 litres.













Ideally i would have liked to make the shell from either carbon fibre or aluminium, and the subframe + fuel cell from aluminium too. But as i can only weld steel and wanting to do as much of the build myself, i opted for what i can weld. Perhaps once the build is complete il learn to weld aluminium and remake the parts.

Anyway, still lots to do but its definitely starting to take shape

Good progress.

The latches to hold the shell down are different, depends on the overall look that you are going for...

As for the tank or fuel cell, why fill it with foam and whats the detail here? What are you going to do to ensure that the tank is fuel tight? Also are you planning to treat the inside of the tank at all?

Thanks. Once fully welded, I'll be treating the inside of the tank with some tank sealer. I might see if i can use the leak tester at work too. And the foam baffle cubes will prevent the fuel from sloshing about.

As you're making the tank yourself why not add some baffles into it as opposed to the foam? Also do you know how much foam is required and how long it lasts?
