As you can imagine not an easy conversion, putting in a 350 isnt to bad, as only need some new alloy brackets made and welded in, you need to make a cradle to hold the front, like mine several ways to do this but this is my idea.
Ive also gone the whole hog and put in a 3xv (tzr250) swingarm as this can hold wider wheels. the rear is a 180 tyre on a 5.5 rim so pretty big, the front end is a Ducati 916, so far its took a year to build. time mainly finding the right bits.
ive made many bits as well like the rear sets, underslung rear caliper, rear subframe, plus lots more.

If i remember right there is bits from about 8 different bikes so far, some are hard to spot.

Bodywork.

i'd never get fed up of the 'R' version!!!

but nice project tho... but erm, wouldnt it justve been easier to put a 250 in there?

u reckon an rd500 lump could fit in? that would be mental....

Latest development the Fairing

The top is a rs125 grafted onto yamaha 3ma side panels.

Air scoop on top filled in then extended to fit 3ma panels. this when finished will be used to make a mold to cast the finished job.

Looks neat
