Thumbs up bike build

I recently was able to pick up a frame that was made by Racing Innovations. This is 1 of only 2 frames like it in the world. The other frame was used bu OCC to make a bike for Snap On. I will be posting pics of this build as I have time to work on it. I have collected most of the parts for the build. I will be using an Evo motor that bought that blown up. I will be assembling the motor,but I have to have someone else do the machine work as I don't have the equipment to do it with.

ok,ok,I will tell you that some of the parts came from OCC. Parts that they got and didn't use. Like the frame,transmission,hand controls. Otherwise I have been getting parts from here and there just like 75%of the guys on here who have built a bike. I will have $6-8k plus the frame,in this bike when I am done,maybe less. It won't be a hot rod with 130 at the rear wheel,but it should be dependable and look good. As time goes on,I will upgrade as I can.

It is an 8 up,5 out,40 degrees of rake. Will be putting a 16 over front end on it with 5 more degrees in the trees. The fram is made from hexagon bar stock. It was bored out in the back bone and the down tube under seat for internal wiring. I am using Accutronix triple tree and forward control. The lower legs are Mean Street. The trans and motor have 1 1/4 in offset. The motor is an Evo that I traded for that was blown up. I have to replace the rods,cylinders and pistons. I having the new cylinders bored out to 20 over and I am putting Keith Black pistons in it. Let's see, a 240 rear with wire wheels,Metzler tires,Mikuni HSR 42 carb with Vance and Hines exhaust. The hand controls are Joker Machine JX controls with hyd clutch. Enclosed primary for now,might change it out later,oh and a West Coast Choppers rear fender.

Thanks Rockhewer and Razorback,I hope to have it completed with in a couple of months so that I can get it out on the road.

It may not turn out like this



but it will be something I have done with my own hands.

It seems that vibration will be an issue. Rubber mount everything you can to help isolate as much as possible.

Hadn't thought about that-you might be right on that. The harmonics might travel through the frame. What do you think? A thin layer of rubber under motor mounts? or regular rubber mounts under motor? That was a good point. I was thinking that there is no way that this frame will have any twist in it. Never gave a thought to the harmonic of the vibrations traveling through it.

I think, but I could be wrong, that Jay was refering to oil bag, battery tray, shit like that. You do not want to rubber mount your drive train. Again, could be wrong but don't think I am. Looks pretty cool though!!!

Well,oil bag/battery tray is rubber mounted or will be. Maybe I am overthinking what he was saying.

You don't want to put rubber under your engine unless you want to go with a traditional rubber mount set-up which is designed for that. Put your seat up on springs, use rubber dampeners for your handlebar mounts and maybe even a bar snake in your bars. Basically, anything you can do to isolate you from the vibration will probably do a world of good I would think.
