It's a great story all right.

 Roughed out a bearing outrigger , a bit unnecessary but continuing a theme.

 Once this is done it 's bung it in the frame time. This should relatively easy thanks to the earlier dry run.

 I want to weigh it before installing. Does anybody know what a std Super Rocket motor weighs?  I suspect my engine will be somewhat heavier due to my greediness with excessive carbs and spark plugs and all the home made bits, not to mention 17 miles of weld.

Is this going to be a racer or a road bike? What have you done to the frame to cope with all the power?

Are you going for 10 pages?!

 It's a road bike Greybeard.

 My definition of road bike might be different from everybody elses though.

 The frame is pretty std , just a box s/a on bearings and a coat of high tensile black paint.

 Finished whittling the outrigger, should fit it tomorrow.

 Wow *ex*

 That looks great, and you should be more than proud.

 I hope there is a way to record the sound of that engine and post it on the forum. I have no idea how that could be done, but I hope there is a way. *smile*

G'day danma. Yum Yum Yum.
I can't stand the suspense. Are you going to bench test it first? Hope you've been working on the roller in the background.
