Cutting and Shutting the Frame

Between Christmas and the New Year we finally started cutting and shutting the Supersport frame.




Finished cut frame tack welded together. Lots of lugs removed to clean up the frame as much as possible:

Now we're really desperate to get a full rolling chasis so that we can see the stance of the bike.

The big 19" wheels and Maxxis tyres will transform the appearance and height. These should be with us at the end of January, fingers crossed.

The yokes are being machined out to accept the Öhlins forks, and should have been ready weeks ago...

Soon we will get the seat unit offered up and start making the tank, first out of styrofoam until we're happy with the shape and then out of ally or steel.
