Default Thunderace Streetfighter

Hi all

I am in the process of building a Thunderace streetfighter , initially using bits from a Speed Triple i am breaking for parts.

How the bike started....



My plan is to use the Thunderace clocks mounted in the SPeed Triple pixie hat fairing and the lights. I thought the easiest way to do this was to use the SPeed Triple front subframe and attach that to the mounting for the Ace front sub-frame, but that didn't work out. Instead I mounted the pixie hat frame and lights to the existing ACe sub frame. Not ideal but it will do for the momnent...







I am also going to use the bars from the Speed Triple but need to sort extended brake and speedo lines. For the moment the bike is rideable with clip-ons.

I will also need to find a way of bringing the front subframe higher up as the clocks are a bit low and it will be even worse with higher bars. I also need to sort out a better way of mounting the lights as it is a bit Heath Robinson at the mo...



I also need to find a way of routing this lot of wiring inside the frame...



I am also thinking of using the Speed Triple subframe and rear plastcs but as the Ace subframe is welded on, I will need to give that serious though as once I cut it off there is no going back...

Anyway, that is where I am so far. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas then fire away...

Taz

Another Ace fighter! whoot!

Yea i still haven't chopped my sub yet because i was too keen to ride it lol. plus the old lady would kill me if i bobbed it. You've got two options as i'm sure you've already concluded, find an ally one and weld that in place or grind down the mounting spots to tabs the frame is nice and chunky so there is tons of metal to make use of there and use them as tabs to bolt a sub onto. This way you can choose almost and sub and it don't have to be ally.

What you doing about the radiator? that was this biggest bug for me, the ace rad is so fugly it had to go. I think the FZR750 rads will bolt on and they're nice and compact. With the fairings all off that engine runs MUCH cooler so you don't have to use such an enormous rad like the standard one. This was another thing i was worried about when i fightered mine.

With the rear, I don't want to make it ti small is the Ace is a big bike. I want something smaller, but not too small, hence the Speed Triple tail idea. I have heard the theory of how difficult it is, and when I have the major stuff out of the way, I will look into it.

With the rad, yes it is big and butt ugly and it will go at some point. I need to replace the rad anyway and it developed a leak in the rad which i sealed with rad-weld type stuff, but it has never been the same since. I have been thinking about the FZR 750 or thou' rad, but again, I want to get things like wiring, front sub frame etc sorted first.

Wiring done...



Not a pretty sight I know, but it will do until I can get it sorted properly.

Still, makes the bike look a bit tidier!!!!!!!!!!



The only wire left showing is the LED for the alarm. Not sure where that is going yet.

a new subframe can make all the difference, but its always been something im very reluctant to consider when the original is welded on, i do think the triple tail would look good
Ive always put alarm wire in the top yoke with a little bezel thing

Hi, I found the wiring to be a real pig, so I went on to Ebay and found another loom that I hacked up and lost miles of wires, it made them much easier to hide, try googling Hel brake lines, P&H in Wales. Or there are some good suppliers on Ebay. While your there look for risers, there are some that go over the top of the forks so you don,t have to drill the top yolk. Just out of interest why the Triumph look?
Good luck.

I'd say the wiring looks real fine, lad! You should see mine
