    looking a tad longer than i'd like, but cant help it given the project demands and specialties - folding in halves, and due to the 'narrow' offset of the motor sprocket, the distance between sprockets hub and swinger axle cant be shorter

    also its become obvious that better off filling the gap between the frame and swinger with placing shock and linkage there, not under the swinger as i planned before.

    loving to mix pushbike and motorcycle parts like those grips. took half an hour to pull em off the handle bar and to push em back and on to the throttle handle.

    same here Bob, not enough time and money, things to be done are multiplying like a snow ball year after year, hope to proceed with my turbo bandit this year. and yes again, asf blokes are just lurking around more and more seldom, no new threads and updates, communication to awesome folks i met here is going on the fb pages, sad indeed, especially remembering how it was 10-12ys ago

    just covered cups, phones, remotes ant other shit with cardboard. tho the tables homemade and air brushed with my fav mat black epoxy paint which doesnt burn and holds melted metal blobs.
    now the engine in the frames half resembles a chain saw without guide bar. btw, initially i planned just to install my chainsaw motor on a fat bike, but later decided to buy the motor kit, mainly coz of much higher revs and following gearin problems. hopefully the bike engine as reliable as chainsaw's

    hey hey im back with updates
    as usual, the ride was interrupted by MORE IMPORTANT THINGS, now it was my belongings' relocation to the country house, had to fab a powerful rear bumper for my truck and a ramp fixing to it, strong enough to withstand a 2t van that was also one of my unfinished projects (turboing one and other upgrades), then i was moving all the stuff there, then had begun building a new huge garage, but out of sudden the autumn has come with rains and frosts and no indian summer; so i thought why not to switch on to the folding motorcycle project

    forgot to shoot the process of fabbing the rear susp linkage, but it was made for 2 days and then i began to design the 'right' resonator and its a total headache. made necessary calculations and soon it will be finished. had to assemble the whole bike to get the idea, how the zorst should be directed etc. and when the 12 day long rain had finished at long last, i decided not to fight with temptation to take the bike out, before disassembling it for tidying up and painting

    as you can see, its already got the reed valve, the balanced tuned up zorst is next (i did buy a banana zorst from china, but its a fucking joke, made against all formula), then i might mess with the engine to squeeze out as many horsies as possible. and i probably gonna need the seat.

    thanks all, awesome that the old cavalry is gathering back!
    yup Bob, its a fun project but im serious on it from the beginning, its not like putting an engine on a stock pushie, it must answer all technical demands like being compact and light, folding in halves, and when folded, anything mustn't hit each other, the zorst must be pretty big according to the calculations and by that compact again, not protruding forth, even the fuel petcock gave me many hours of brooding, as it supposed to be in the lowest place of the upper tube/tank, just where the carbie s already hung
    no worries Kev fuck deleting anything
