So ya doing the bolt(weld) on hard tail? I notice there is no swingarm. Are you scamming parts off of your current 650 or scrounging bits from elsewhere? Going to bring life to that box of bits you got from yer cuz? Looks like you could be well on your way. Keep us posted.
oh yeah, I think Cdn Tire has angle grinders on sale this week.
Got a grinder (65% off last year). Dunno what's gonna power it just yet. Probably the 650 will be the donar, but I'll deal with hardtailing the frame first and worry about the rest when that's done.
Hey! Your even farther along already than I am with my honda twin project. The pics are still coming, they're just sittin on my window sill in Sastard sr.'s hot pink flashdrive.
If you go looking for a hardail kit, try looking for an amen saviour tail for your 650. looks hard but has a nifty spring setup. saves your back, eats your chains. yoyo rear wheel action. very retro and cool.
Prairie Tech Innovations quoted me over $700 bucks for the rear section with springs. WTFuck! Did some research and the bikes amen are all over the road usually anyway. Say you're prayers! Cool but not very good. Checkem out - http://prairietechinnovations.com/#Here's a sweet one from Holland.http://www.xs650chopper.com/2009/07/my-76-oldskool-chopper/
Hm! live and learn. Way better to learn before you blow 700bux. bikes are cool.
