project assembly
« on: 01.07. 2019 13:47 »
As promised, an update on the project. Sorted how the front wheel went together and got the wheels on. Still a shed load of stuff to do (rear shockers, modify petrol tank to clear front carb, find out why the oil tank leaks (just bloody repaired it  *conf*) and finish modifying starter rollers. I'll not be finishing the exhausts until I'm sure it's a runner.

G'day RD, nice work mate.
You must have a very long shoe horn  *smile*.
Are those SR/XT heads?
Cheers

No shoehorn, but lots of patience! Was lucky it fitted without too much bother. Only frame mod I did was to put an extra tube between bottom rails for a rear engine mounting. The heads are both XT and SR. Couldn't get a pair at the time, so upgraded the XT to SR spec (eg bigger inlet valve) and trimmed the fins on the SR. Added weirs to the cam troughs to ensure cams had enough oil with the new lean angle.
