Default Turbo shovel swinger for the Show Class People's Champ 2

Didnt wanna start a build thread until I had some pretty decent progress and it started to look like something. Basically, I had these Kim-Tab mags in my stash and needed to build something around them. Got the Shovel in trade for some fab work, and then it just kinda sat for a few months. Got chosen to be in the Show Class Peoples Champ 2, and now the ball is rolling.

Basic plans call for a turbo, magneto, monoshock, extended swingarm, homemade girder, and the gold kimtabs. Kinda Bandit-ish. Very 80s.
















Quick mock up






Next up is making a custom turbo header, rather than this "off the shelf" one that was used for mock up, and a homemade girder using streamlined tubing. Hoping I make the cut to take this thing to Born Free6!

It's an old RayJay unit. No real markings or serial #s on it unfortunately. Should spool pretty well though. Not really planning on running much boost.
Maybe 4-5psi. Not trying to set the world on fire. Just want a fun street bike.
