Yes, MILLIONS looking for some vintage-size choices. Even for some 16-inch versions!
Those PVMs are interesting too. Neat stuff in these postings. MikeV

Hi

Got my frame friday one week ago. It has been quite a challenge to fit the 1000cc engine into the TT Frame concept, without changing the original layout to much.
I´m very happy with the result.

Did a quick mock up to check tire to valvecover clearance. Works out perfectly and depending on the rear shock lenght i can achieve a steering angle of 65 to 66 degree ( picture shows fork extended through the top yoke by additional 30mm to simulate the negative suspension travel in ride height).

Next challenge is to fit the carbs and airbox into the frame.

TOM

Hi all

would like to ask for you help in designing my bike.

I would need someone realy good in photoshop to help me.

my bike will get the same design as this one.

only the seat will be cut back to look lighter ( like on my SR 500 racer)

Everything painted red will be white ( vinyl ) and everything blue will be not painted at all and show a dull carbon fiber finish ( or completly the other way around)
Frame will be either dull white, dull black or just bare steel scotched and wd40´d. Fork will be black.
Has anyone of you a high res side view pic ( or 3/4 pic) which could serve as a base for a photoshop mod.
And most important who can handle the photoshop part ?
Thanks TOM

Thanks Jan, I was curious how they would work on the TT. I had only seen them used on 'big' bikes. Lou

Hi Jan,
I was wondering if you talked the problem over with a Conti rep?

Hi all

a little update on the bike

Jan i already have the Contis . Did you use the Competition compound or there Standard compound ( comp is only available as of autumn last year).
I´ve also been told that they need temperatur to work, so tire warmers are highly recommandet. Did you use some?
What tire pressure did you run ? Did you measure the tire temp ? What are the alternative tires you propose?

Progress so fare: Front fork fitted in, Carbs mounted. Converted the vertical cylinder one to left hand actuation, because the right hand original did not clear the frame. Also will mount a standard floatboal on that carb and use a line from the others carb acceleration pump to squirt into the vertical carb also.
Received my carbonfiber bodywork yesterday and mounted it today ( tank is only a mock up). The ramair channel serves as holder for the fairing. It will be blended in from the inside and covered qith a wire mash from the front so it looks original. Also the white template shows where i´m giong to glue in a NACA duct to feed cooling air to the rear cylinder.

here are some pics.
TOM
