Default The new project - TLS w/SSSA

Having returned the GSXR 600 back to track-only status, I decided to start the project I have wanted to do from the beginning: a TLS platform streetfighter.

I was lucky enough (sort of) to acquire the pre-made basics for what I wanted: TLS motor and frame, Honda NT650 Hawk SSSA, 190 rear tire capability on the Ducati 748 rim. From there I have a truly blank slate...

I am throwing up these pictures so you can see what I have got to start with.

Tail end mockup (I am going to build and install an adjustable trellised subframe in the future):


The following walk around the bike I have the tail in roughly the same angle as the stock subframe:



The next series is with the tail up about 5 degrees. I think the tail is a bit long, but with the sub I can bring it a couple inches closer to the front.




Tank vs. tail from top:


Any feedback on the tail as far as styling/angle of rise?

I would like to use the CBR tail, but I'm not convinced that its angularity matches with the roundness of tank and tubular frame. The GSXR front fender helps balance it a bit, but... dunno.

I have some fabrication to do on the shock mounts, spacers and bracing over the next couple of weeks.

Fuck it, that tail looks killer. Mod the tank, do something to make it angular.

It's not so bad as long as you can keep the fear from your mind.

I hope you mount that shock different, straight up and down is not going to work. top needs to be pointed forward for it to work correctly on a direct link shock. Correct me if I am wrong. By no means am I a suspension guru, but I can see how it is not going to work.

i'd say add two scoops (of fun) to the gastank to match the "intakes" on the tail section and you'd be golden.



heh nice exhaust. hows that badboy sounding?! lol.

i like the tail, although like you said, maybe a bit long. Mod the tank like the new ducati monsters with the screens in front and make it more angular. I like it so far.
