ok it has been a while that i had a thread of a bike i'm building
and i've worked on this one ..between customers bikes and hardtail frames for some while now

but here it goes

started out with this pile of junk ,that i traded for a BMW r60/6







first i mocked up the engine and decided wich way i wanted to go
i also had a BSA gearbox in a corner somewhere so i made this frame


but when i was that far ...i wasn'd satisfied
i had something else in my head

so i started from scratch and i made this frame
(sorry i don't have any pic's from the frame itself rightnow ...will make them later)


it's also real narrow and kind of simular to the BSA C11 "B 52" frame i made before









changed a lot more the past two weeks
like the exhaust ,reartire ,fitted a kickstarterset etc

more pics comming soon ;)

Love the frame Philip. Sort of chunky but still with the same proportions as a 45. Alien tank looks good on there too. Is this the one you're having the big cylinders made for?

Cheers Johnny

yeah the cilinderset was for this engine ....but
the guys made a mistake
the pistonpin was to high in the piston (compression issues)
and some other small things
the stuff went back to germany and the are workin on a new set

meanwhile i bought a new stock 750 cc set complete in the states
and this week i wil complete the engine with some help from willem over at the "zijklepperpaleis"
he will help me with some "lapping" and whe need to find some right size rollerbearings for the crankcase and flywheels

so the other "spare" 45 engine will get the 980 cc set
and i will fit it later

first i have to get this bike ready for rosmalen in 3 weeks
(bigtwin customshow)

luke : the 7/8 bars came of an old 50 cc motorbike
just narrowed them and made them fit the springer
they are massive now :D ,filled them with lead

You know I love frame no. 2. Frame no. 1 is nothing to sneeze at, either. The Paughco 45 frame that uses a BT transmission is downright hideous by comparison. You never did say what's holding those stubby pipes to the cylinder. Solder?

yeah the cilinderset was for this engine
What are these cylinders all about?

thanks guys

the only big issues gonna be the modern big twin 4 speed tranny
its alligned to to the rear wheel ,but the engine sprocket and the clutch housing are way off
i have to figure things out to make it work and in a way that is works for ever ,without it falling apart or killing the bearings or casing

i have 3 options ...now its all abouth finding and making parts for it

I really like this bike, the frame is beautiful with that single downtube and how it swells out under the tranny. I was thinking of building a flattie next, possibly tradin up my sportster for a worthwhile motor to build

Second frame looks great, not so keen on the tank though, I prefer the way the peanut sits. It seems to ft the theme, & proportions better.
