Alright, I caved in...
I was not going to enter this build because I didn't want to be under a time constraint with this build. I have a lot going on personally and professionally and knowing how stressful the next 6 months are going to be with the race team, work, a wedding to plan (and attend I suppose), I really didn't want to do this to myself...

But, common sense (!) prevailed---so here's what I have. I suck at photoshop so I can't even give you a visual idea of what I have planned, but here we go--

All I currently have ownership of for this build is pictured. I have -
1989 Suzuki GSX-R750 Frame
1989 Suzuki GSX-R750 Engine
03-04 Kawasaki Z1000 headlight fairing (from j.gaught)
2000 Suzuki GSX-R750 Forks and Triple Clamps
LSL Superbike Lowbars (from Smokey74)
Billet Risers (taken from my old crashed pitbike)
1990 Honda VFR750 Single Sided Swingarm (and peripherals)
- en route is a Buell XB front rim with perimeter disc setup (thx to Scrapyard)


Input would be appreciated as far as bellypans go. I have already selected a tail section but I have no idea where to get a nice bellypan and/or what style/look. Input appreciated!

Here's pics (thanks to my lovely fiancee for taking the pics, and for convincing me to do this...yes, she's the one who got me to enter)








AND to prove that it is currently a 748cc mill ----



Consider me entered--->now let's hope I finish!

Jan. 2

Alright, so head out to the garage tonight to see what I can accomplish with no running gear, engine, etc....

Well, let's see how bad this swingarm is going to be. Offer it up, as is, with all the stock spacers/bushings, etc. No go, too wide. Remove the spacer/bushing bits and...well, well, well---I'll be damned if it didn't just slot right in there. Sweet, first issue down, verified that the swingarm is narrow enough to fit between the frame rails in the first place! Now, how far out is the chain alignment--grab an old chain from the shelf...you tell me...



So, while it's not a bolt in setup, it's not as bad as I thought it would be. Very little milling will need to be done, and this will be for proper spacing with bushings and the like. And FYI, a 1990 VFR750 and 1989 GSXR750 have the same swingarm pivot size . Found that out by accident. The hard part of this setup (as has been stated before) will be an upper shock mount as the VFR shock is off centered. This still shouldn't be too too bad, I think I've figured out a way to make a removable mount (like the stock one) that's simply offset. We'll see how it works out.

Oh, and Scraps, you aren't alone...I too found a snapped off bolt in the shock mount

A few more pics of the mock(ery) up.




Okay, enough of that, the measurements hurt my head---time to wreck something...

Hey, what's this box?


Oh, it's my Christmas present from my little brother and his lovely lady!


CIAO!


tada, I'm done for the night.

Shock mount was already off when I bought it. I just noticed that the bastard was snapped off the other day. I have an engine to put together tomorrow for something else (to get it outta my way), and then I may have a go at it....we'll see...

Didn't accomplish anything in the last few days what with working the motorcycle show and all...except for some PIMP ideas...

I don't know if I should share this, but I did a really bad photoshop for some i-dee-ers...and no, there's no turbo in the plan It's just a good profile shot.

Alright, since I have no actual structural updates, I'll share info---OHLINS!

Still waiting on some parts so that I can get my front end together, stupid postal service!

Did some measuring on this VFR arm and it appears that no machining will need to be done to the arm, only bushing/spacers made up. There's about 3mm on either side of the swingarm to fill and everything should line up.

My original plans to use the VFR suspension were changed, because I have a 94-97 arm, and the shock/linkages I have are from a 90-94---completely different. And because of that I figured, if I have to do a shitload of work to make a stock VFR shock fit, why not find something cool? Well, I have 2 ZX11's in my garage that belong to a friend, and he's parting them out. One has an Ohlins shock with remote reservoir and adjuster and we made a deal that has me parting the bikes for him and me keeping a few items, the shock being the key. So basically, through some fluky coincidence, I'm getting an Ohlins shock for free

I was going to visit the bike wreckers yesterday but it snowed 4 inches and it was -20C so I didn't...wussed out

Lastly, I've decided 100% which tail I'm using. I love the tail I photoshopped (from Tyga Bodywork), but it's more than I'd like to spend. I'm now going with a Ducati 749/999 monoposto tail section.

Can't think of anything else productive to add at the moment, this is killing me!
