Here is the design, all the parts have been sent to the metal shop to be cut, and the trees are looking to be machined on a CNC machine! Soon it will be set in a JIG and welded up!

"SWING ARM"








Because Cody converted his bike from dual rear shocks - to mono shock, the swing arm had to be reinforced. He settled on his design, cut and welded some 1" x .120 cromoly tubing and got this finished product.
Next step, Design and fabricate the seat mount which will secure the top of the new mono shock.

12/03/08 Cody found a portable band saw!


So over Thanksgiving break "Cody Man" works diligently to move the pistons, clean his heads and strip alittle more un-needed parts from his soon to be Street fighter. Evidently he stumbled across a portable band saw hiding out in one of my shop cabinets........

Low and behold he chops away!!

This weekend will be a work weekend for him. Parts need to be purchased!

11/26/08 Chop chop choppin....


He wasted no time getting dirty. He used to be a hell-u-va shop rat! He started the basic removal of all that is crap. Some will make it to Ebay, some to the trash can, some perhaps to re-fabrication. He is currently looking for a 650cc top end and possibly a Turbo kit.
The carbs have been stripped and cleaned and will will go back together when he receives his gasket/rebuild kit. He is going to clean the cylinders, charge the battery and try to turn it over this weekend.
