My steering rack, and a plate I water jetted to mount it.

Trailing arms just sitting there.


Now your getting the idea.


The front.

I am working on the front uprights tomorrow. As for the hubs, I am using Proto-Die's hubs, and water jetting out my rotors. They are 11" in dia. I am rinning Willwood Dynalight twin piston calipers to slpw it down. Enough computer time.....back to work LOL

Thanks guys! The motor is a 2005 EFI, CBR 1000rr 6 speed, with a power programer, and a Yosh. slip on pipe. The gear box has a reduction of 5.4:1, with 30" tall tires, so it should be kinda quick.

Sarcastro, the RPM box only handles the gear reduction, and the foreward neautral, and reverse, but basiclly I will have 6 speeds in foreward, and reverse from the bike trans. and thanks AVTECH.

Well all I have done this week is weld at night after my son goes to bed. I DID however get my wheels and tires. Here are some more pics....

The wheels and tires.

One of 3 calipers.

The tie rods


One end has some slots milled into the rod for adjustment.


Just a shot from the front


The 4 wd S-10 front wheel bering assy, with the splined 930 flanges.


this is a silly comparison of the size of the rear trailing arms next to my CRF 450r



It SHOULD be a roller by next Thursday, so stay tuned!

Justin

Well, I got the front uprights done, the rotors cut, the front calipers mounted, and more welding done on the frame. After a beer last night I bolted in the driver side front suspension. I was amazed at the ground clearance that it has. The frame is 27" off the ground, and there is still 2 more inches to go! So if the frame has 4" clearance at full bump, I will have 25" of bump steer free travel! The rear will be limited to the C/V joint angles, so the rear will be around 20".

Justin.
