Well it's been a busy week shopping for parts but I think I'm almost done.

Got a super set of OZ wheels shod with Racetec rubber
Image

A mint condition gsxr K9 front end, I sent the yokes to streetfighterbling.net for them to make a billet set
Image

One set of billet rear sets, not sure what bike they are for. (the heal plate will have to go)
Image

Got a new shock
Image

RSVR swing arm
Image

And the engine, electrics etc from this blade, 1999 with 24K on it, I bought a complete bike as a donor just for peace of mind as I know the engine is sweet (the other side of the bike is trashed, lol)
Image

I have ordered the alloy to make the frame and the turbo is sorted, time to get building :D

So made a start fitting the OZ Aprilia wheel in to the gsxr forks, the spindle (axle) is the same size so no need to change bearings and inner spacer, disc's on the gsxr wheel are 137mm apart, the disc's on the OZ wheel are 133mm, if I was using the gsxr yokes I would have made 2mm spacers to go between the wheel and disc's, but as I'm having billet yokes made I have told the CNC guy to make the yokes 4mm narrower, job done.

Next problem is the gsxr disc's are 310mm and the OZ disc's are 320mm, this means I can't bolt the calipers down
Image

To solve this I pulled the standard locating tubes out and made longer ones with 5mm collars
Image

Problem solved, caliper locked down and disc's clear of caliper
Image

Just need to make a spindle spacer to centre the wheel in the forks but I'll have to wait till the yokes are made.

Time to get going on this, the new headstock is coming and the new yokes will be here in 2 weeks.

As I'll be making loads of trips to the welders as this bike grows I've made a trolley to wheel it back and forth (needs a 4x2 screwed underneath still to make it solid) this will be the bikes home as parts get added, got the swing arm in place and checking for chain alignment.
Image

The frame rails arrived, don't expect any fancy shit with this frame, all I've got is a hack saw :D

Image
I must show you guys this product
Image


I was going to fully strip the motor and have it aqua blasted as it was covered in corrosion, dirt and grime, you couldn't even see any alloy for crud!

I saw this product on eBay and thought might give it a try, fuck me! I used a tooth brush and scouring pad and look how it came up, this took 30 mins!
Image
Image

The front still needs going over again with a pad and product but a few hours and the motor will look like new, awesome.


Here's the headstock for the frame.

Ok time to build, I've been over the design 1000 times and I'm happy with it.

Got the front end together, I had streetfighterbling.net (little plug for them) make the yokes 4mm narrower than the original gsxr yokes as the disc's on the OZ wheel are 4mm closer together than the gsxr wheel's disc's, this just means the calipers are in line with the disc's, some new spacer will be needed but I'll do those later.
Image

calipers and disc's all line up nice
Image

You guys have any idea how hard it is to do this on your own? lol lol
Image

Everything in line and ready for the frame build
Image
Image
Motor lined up
Image

And straight
Image

Made up a template for the frame rail cuts and angles
Image

And the first bit of chrome, the clutch cable holder, lol
Image
Didn't get much time to play today, got the frame rails masked and marked, will try get these cut and bent tomorrow.
Image

Frame rails cut
Image

And bent, I need to go to the welder tomorrow and have them tacked in position to check for fit.
Image

So off to welders tomorrow to get frame rails tacked, I've made up a pattern to clamp the rails to so the rails should be within a 1 or 2mm, thats close enough for this.
Image

Also turned down some cap head screws for the yokes
Image
Busy afternoon, got the rails tacked
Image

First fitting! fuck me spot on with no adjustments needed, nice
Image
Image
Image

For those who ask how I cut the angles
I make paper templates of the angle required
Image

Then draw it on to the rail, if both cuts are the same length then the join will meet up perfect
Image

Last cut done
Image

Frame fitted.
Image

I might call this project "THE BOXER" get it? made from box section and boxer as in fighter!

So I've been back and forth to the welder for the last few days un-tacking and re-tacking to get the frame perfectly straight, the next step is cutting the outer 50mm hole and inner 40mm hole for the swing arm bosses, I've been dreading this as 1mm out and it's "start again time" something I didn't want to do!
So, as I only have a small drill press I measured the hole centres like 100 times, lol
I took my time and the holes turned out perfect, nice, now I can relax as the frame is now spot on with the swing arm boss holes done (I can't fuck it up now)

Image

streetfighterbling guys made me a stainless swing arm pivot spindle
Image

I had a little go to see how the frame would look mirror polished, nice me thinks!
Image

The bosses should be here mid week so it might be a rolling chassis in a few days.

Good progress today.

The bosses turned up from streetfighterbling.net (little plug, lol)
Image

I designed them with a lip on the outside that would be welded in place
Image

But after seeing them I didn't like it so I turned them down and will get them welded then blend the boss and frame to look as one piece
Image

I had the inner sections made 10mm longer than I needed so I could turn them down to an exact fit
Image

Ok, here we have the inner bosses turned down to the correct width and all clamped up with the swing arm spindle ready for the bosses to be welded in place tomorrow
Image

With the back of the frame clamped up I checked the frame at the front for alignment, I'll settle for this as all I had was an angle grinder to work with!
Image

Here's the frame fitted, looks god to me.
Image

Started marking out the cuts to the frame.
Image

Getting exciting isn't it, lol lol

I spent the afternoon working on the frame lower sections

Bosses welded in place and rubbed down
Image

Still had to make a few tiny adjustments to the frame welds but it's perfect now, it even holds the headstock in place the fit is that good :)
Image

I cut and folded the back and side of the lower frame rails
Image

Then ground both smooth, bottom rail ready to be welded
Image

It'll look good me thinks!
Image

And plated up
Image

Headstock welded (there is more frame work here to come)
Image

All welds rubbed down and frame fitted, forks are dead straight and all seems in line, so far so good :)
Image
Image
Image

The bar above the swing arm is just for support till I know where it's actual position will be, next job is make and fit the rear shock.

[quote=Gingerilla;980289]pics of afore mentioned shock mount??[/quote]

Heres the bottom linkage mount welded on
Image

Now I was going to just weld a piece of 2x1 box section across the frame with a bracket for the top mount BUT where is the bling in that! so I've designed a fully adjustable top mount for ride height, I've ordered the materials and will be making it this week, it's a bit complex so might take a few days.

So the materials finally arrived, here's the parts I had made (streetfighterbling.net)
Image

I turned some bushes out of 60mm dia Acetal bar
Image

Here the unit together, I didn't have any cap head's so used stud and nuts to check for fit, the outer parts will fit though the frame and be welded then blended so all you'll see is a recess and allen screw head
Image

And with shock and adjuster, I'm pleased with how it looks.
Image

Got the frame drilled and ends welded in
Image

Ground down flush
Image

And mocked everything up for fit before welding the arms in etc
Image
Image

Made a start on the engine mounts (these are NOT finished, they will be boxed from the bolt to the frame) and no the mounts are going to be made of MDF these are just the patterns to send away.
Image
Image

Also made a start with the frame boxing, these are just the start and many more sections will be added as the build continues.
Image

Got the inner rear sections welded in, blended in the top section
Image

Both sides blended, wet'n'dried then a little polish :)
Image

Image

Got the rear lower engine mounts
Image

I'm going to have them welded with a 5mm gap from the engine both sides, after I slide the bolt though I'll line the sprockets up exactly then make spacers to suit the gaps.
Image

10mm angle for the rear set hangers
Image

Right hand hanger made
Image

And just to prove I get the workshop dirty
Image

Got the rear lower mounts welded on, made two spacers, 2mm on right and 21mm on left, motor is now bolted tight in the frame so I can get the other mounts fitted, I'm using studding for the engine bolts for set up and will get stainless ones made later
Image

Got both rear set hangers welded on
Image
Image

Chain alignment is spot on
Image

So here's where we are now.

Got the carbs stripped, cleaned and rebuilt
Image

And made new plates plus cleaned up the linkage
Image

Image

I made up all the spacers required to fit the mounts for welding.
Image

I didn't plan on fitting the ride height adjuster to the engine bolt but it looks ok and will save a load of work making up a mounting stud.
Image

Finished getting the engine mounts welded on
Image

I had to drill all the holes out to 11mm as some where a bit tight but no big deal, engine in frame and bolted up, phew!
Image

So, got the height adjuster thingy welded up
Image

And cleaned up
Image

And fitted
Image

And we now have a rolling chassis! nice, I checked it over and wheels etc all true.
Image

Started the frame inner sections
Image

Coils fitted
Image

Front subframe mounts made
Image


Got all the seems welded up and both cross bars too
Image

I was going to make the seat but remembering what a bitch the last one was I caved in and bought a YZ 125 seat, made a start on the subframe.
Image
Image

I'm having a real good time building this bike :) it's like it's just coming together with no effort!

Image

Subframe sections made
Image

And fitted, need to make the seat holders now.
Image
Image

I'm away at the NEC this weekend with the Kwaka so here's a few outside pix till I get back

Didn't get much time with bike this weekend but started the seat mounts.

Cross bar in (needs welding)
Image

Started machining a piece of acetal for the support
Image

Support finished
Image

Made some temp plates to get fit right, I'll have some nice CNC plates done later
Image

So got the front seat holder and latch thing finished, I did have to alter the subframe at the front as the seat was a little high.
Image
Image
Image

And as I hate all things black the fork bottoms are getting painted
Image

My mate Vince had to be the first to put his arse on it, fat cunt, lol
Image

Couple of outside shots with seat on.
