Default the efe

this is one of the bikes from the mag , but as it ain't always the easiest to find in the good old US of A i thought i'd have a build thread here too , granted it'll always be months behind when i post here but it gives me a chance to participate .

where did i start ? well... me mate craig bought most of an efe rolling chassis, which he duly ignored for a year .......so i bought it off of him




the plan being to throw together an efe based bike

first off was the rear suspension, i had enough bits to get started , i assembled them all and used a ratchet strap from a tree to hold the arm in position



once the position for the lower mounts had been decided on it was all taken inside and prepared for welding



bottom mounts fitted i could move on up ......to the top...... back outside

i cut out the battery tray, flipped the frame the right way up and used straps again to hold the arm (checking angles with a digital angle finder )




this let me make templates for the top mounts .


so far we have a chopped about efe frame, a gixer thou arm, gixer thou shock, sv650 linkage and a set of dogbones

first mock up was with a cbr900 rear wheel

A- mismatched wheels

B - rear tyre looks skinny against the tail light

so i obtained a 6" rim from an srad, and since i'm changing the wheel i might as well trick up the rear of the arm with some billet ends .............like ya do

apparently being on an island in the North Sea is a part of the formula for street fighter success! Subscribed to this build for sure!

picked up an oil cooler and cut out a mounting bracket



then made some bars, if nothing else it made it easier to push around



then i decided i didn't like the cooler up there so made a new bracket


welding turned out nice on this i think

which moved it to down here



which i thinks looks betterer
