Track/experiment bike...

Haven't really posted much so far, so I thought I'd show some progress on my bank busting SP-1 project...
Feel free to criticize where appropriate!
Bought crash damaged...turned out a little more crashed then I was hoping...


















I'll keep this updated if I remember/can be arsed!

Cheers for looking,

Dave

More toil...

Gashed frame and threads ripped out of rearset mounts...



solution - Timeserts and ally heat curing enamel paint!







The swing'arm was just about untouched, but I wanted it polished and stiffened! Can't afford the SP-2 swingger swap! So where you see cardboard will be 3mm ally plate! I took as much off as possible to save on weight before I tacked it all together! I should have it seam welded and fully polished by Tuesday...should!

You have a lot of work ahead of you, but excellent work on the frame! How much did the swingarm gain on the reinforcements? Is it really that weak on the SP1?

Anyway, looking forward to see the result. Good luck!

Cheers! The frame was a bit of a saga! The swing'arm is pretty beefy to begin with, but I little more strength won't hurt! And if I said I didn't do it because it looks better, that would just be a lie! Ha! But its welded back and front. I wouldn't like to guess by how much its gained! The pictures dont show it, but it was cracked from the crash. So it's definitely stiffer now!
Just need to polish it up, press some new bearings in and I'm good to go!
