Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

I did start a project using a back end from an RVF400, I ran out of time though.
I'm about to start another project using a back end from a cbr400(nc29) very soon.




The front end was from a CBR600RR7.

The front end was pretty straightforward, the rear was not.
Unfortunately I had to cut the project short due to time and funds.
As I said, my new project should be starting in the next week or so.
The single sided swingarm may look the part but is much heavier than the conentional type,
which is why I'm going for the NC29 set up this time.

This is always the way my troubles start ! "That's a nice piece of alloy....steel....tubing....steak (looking in 'fridge)....."what can I make with it and save lots of money"........Hah, bleddy hah. The projects go on forever and the money keeps running out.
I just completed a (non-motorcycle ) project recently which I started 28 years ago, and I daren't count up the cost!!!
It's usually so much cheaper and infinitely less trouble to decide what bike you want and just pay the finance costs.

It's odd you say the ally swinger's heavier than the original, looks good though. This is the first twin shocked I've had I've had in years and seems odd to me, it feels different but don't know if good or bad.
