    skunkworks

    right looks like its not what you know but who you know...... Just so happens I have made friends with one of the best racers australia has ever seen and has been heavly involed in the usa in nitro( he is atm trying to turn the 1st set of nitro cases to run 200mph in the world into a coffee table charger and all :-). ) to top it of he is the head of the kawasaki soup nazi's and trust me there isnt a thing about a z that this fucker dosnt know.....
    So what do you do when offered the chance to play with some really cool toys learn lots and pay for some of a motor that you really dont want to know will be worth buy the end ( new old stock magnesium clucth basket of unatainiume etc)
    well you go play thats what you......

    this is the first chassis and body fit... nothing ground breaking but a good place to get blooded
    start with this


    arm was twisted and didnt line up easy just cut some poor blokes arm up with a saber saw :-)
    (was funny talking to him after he found out he was being sent to someone that had never done any of this lol )
    I am very proud of my race....the fucking human race...........

    How does something like that stand up to abuse of racing ? I assume the swing arm pivot still has bearings in it ?

    arm is fabed dan, solid pivot to suit the m16 cap bolts that bolt from the outside and just clamp arm into place because its rigid
    this arm is a copy of a kosman and is pretty much the way this type bike was made back in the day.
    the spine fuel tank and rake was done by someone else but will be some thing I wouldnt mind trying when the opp arises
