    TT500 motard project

    Some of you might recall this project from about five years ago which i have restarted.
    Progress is good at the moment after a few sticking issues were overcome.
    Cheers.

    I'm having trouble uploading pics at the moment which sucks as i like to photo document all the detail work.
    Any advice appreciated.
    I was using Photobucket till their ransom demand so I'm a bit lost.

    What would be nice is your location in your profile. (before the mods say something, or not)

    Thanks G Man.

    The engine has been rotated forward on the front lower engine mount.
    The bottom rear mounts are salvaged from the scrap frame and modified to suit the different engine location.
    The existing front portion of the frame has been hacked off and replaced with the same section from the scrap frame.
    I did this as i wasn't happy with the fabricated section i originally had done to accommodate the husky TE610 forks and clamps.

    The front mounts will be a different design using alloy plates either side as usef commonly on dirtbikes.
    The upper rear mounts will be modified but still resemble oem.

    I haven't decided whether to keep the oil in frame arrangement or build an alloy tank.
    The hole in the down tube is to make it easier to get to the lazer cut exhaust flange.

    I've run over a few welds on the frame with the tig as some are quite horrible and I'll probably do most as it looks so much nicer on the ones I've done already.

    I'm not real sure what 'type' of bike it will be but part motard, part scrambler, part flat tracker maybe?

    More soon.

    I started on an adapter to take the 40mm mikuni.
    I've cut a plate to weld the machined spigot on to once it's cut to length and the plate is shaped up and i work out the angled offset etc.
