We have transmission!

She gets Aleven wheels, forks, brakes, rider and chain drive.

Looks amazing so much like a 1:1 bike now!
Whats the plan to sell a complete bike or sell as kit less engine? as i have an fs-26 and one of your heads ready to go in something like this!

That single sided swing arm is gorgeous!

Thanks

I got one of those Integy shocks and when I first put it together it worked like a dream... but then it leaked a little and when I tried to refill it, it never worked right again... there it so much voodoo and black magic involved with getting that shock to work it's ridiculous...LOL

one day I'll try again... the shock is too pretty to not use

I have a revo shock on my bike right now.. works great... I have the 2x2mm hole piston in mine, and what I did was to CA one of the holes shut, and I run 30-weight oil in it

Don't panic Stubby! I only have a few mounts to make and then it's electronics and body time!

Have you ever tried bending a thin wall tube? It almost screwed us.

The Revo shock barely fits the bike.

Thank all of you for your kind words.
The forks, brake rotor, rear sprocket, and especially the wheels from
Alleven are outstanding workmanship and a good bargain. I am very glad I don't need to make them.

We are almost ready to run. I am very tired now.

OOPS, I just wet myself.

First I wet myself now I'm drooling all over the place.

That is just beautiful Nolan!

I've just drooled all over my keyboard,absolutely beautiful bike.You're spot on about Patricks wheels,they really are superb to look at.

Really need one sending to me in the UK for race evaluation.

I ditched the new Traxxas Revo shock and went back to the Integy. I have a inner secondary spring setup that I am sticking with. Bleeding the thing is a pain but once you get it it is very good.

I'm either going to move to California or England Allan. I sure need to go racing.
