very nice , more close up pics required . How easy was it to fit the k5 onwards wheels ? I'm assuming 600 5.5 inch rear rim ?

It is 5.5 I think a 6” rim is too wide and makes the bike too slow to change direct and the rubber about now is so good

This is some detailed pictures of the 750 although the engine is slightly larger and I rebuilt it with the usual new part shell cam chain some of valves and  Ray debben tidy up the ports a bit the front and back wheels are slingshot but I didn’t want to put too bigger a tyres as makes it harder to roll into corners so 4.50  rim on the back

the chain adjusters also incorporate a gp lifter for the paddock stand and Sam Baker has the cad drawing now to make these

Some pictures of 750 when I first bought it from a chap in London basically it was a collection of parts loosely bolted together but he did give me some spares as always it had taken much longer than I expected

the spondon yoshi tank will hopefully allow me to get behind the fairing a bit more as I seem to have gained some weight over Christmas!

ossum' machines @Markz9and superb colour scheme (y)

thanks very kind

I always thought the red and white ones were faster but I am prepared to try blue and white to see if it helps my lap times go a bit quicker !

Hi forgot you wanted more details it’s not too bad to fit

swap inner bearings will get spindle to the correct size for standard s/arm you don’t have to machine the sprocket carrier but I did need to nick a bit off the inner bearing spacer to sprocket carrier bearing

I am using a 530 chain ray debben sells front off set sprocket and in it goes, I used a captive spacer on the sprocket side also gets around using original giant bearing

As the swingarm with the original braced frame was built and at the tt classic it’s mad the wheel base a bit too long

  I have got a friend of over in Germany who has modded a slingshot arm with the slabby shock rocker mount
