Lots of hard work going on recently. This is the slow bit, welding and metal working bit of the build.
The frame has been extended on the flywheel side of things, as much as the engine needs at least. The new downtube has been fitted, the plate the engine will sit has also been welded into place.
Its taken about 6 hours to get the frame modded to this state and I still have to:
Swap the brake pivot to the left hand side (As the gear lever will be on the right)
Fabricate and make up a gearbox mount (wont happen until the pulley machining is completed, which is being done on Friday)
Slotted holes for the engine to bolt throught (to allow for pulley tension etc)
and lots of other things I have forgotten about no doubt.
Some pictures (no comments on my welds! First time im geting used to a mig welder 🙂 ) :
