    Yes I know it would be disc and not a drum brake

    Didn't look back to see your year(change year at site as needed), but, Can you spot the differences?

    TriNortchopz . Yeah it was the disc conversion , not desperate with it but it seemed like a nice upgrade if it was relatively easy to do .
    But might have to put it on hold at the mo .
    Donít think there are many wreckers near here . If there is I doubt theyíre open during the Ēcovid crisisĒ

    Have also decided to re do the frame / seat rails as they didn’t look quite right to me . Have cut the rest of the way thru the seat rails and have removed them forward to the “ seat pillar “ reckon I can splice them into the frame top tubes and the gusset them up there. Think that will look a lot tidier and lower. Prob gonna put much simpler axle plates in there as well . Now do I do a single top tube conversion whilst I’m there ? , as I am going to be goose necking it as well . ( I think that’s a question to my self , lol )

    Modified V-Star Chassis

    "To help make the backbone more appealing and give endless options for a gas tank, the backbone was replaced with a single 1 5/8″ tube similar to aftermarket HD chassis...

    After all of the tubes are welded into meet the neck it is time to create a gusset to help support everything. A little gusset can go a long way to creating strength and stability to your welded assembly. It also helps spread the load of pressure and stress over a larger area thus creating more strength. It is also important to use a thicker wall tubing for the backbone, especially when running an extended front fork. A wall thickness of over .187″ is recommended, I have seen many .120″ wall backbones on aftermarket chassis crack completely in half.

    Have considered a single top tube conversion ( and also springer forks lol) . But think it’s just adding to the cost and the build time . The original plan was to plate between the top rails along the top and use the space underneath to hide the remote front master cylinder assembly . Whilst putting the electric items on top underneath the dummy sporty tank . But wasn’t sure how it would look , till I saw this pic ( prob from the 80’s or 90’s ) and I think it looks cool ( not so sure bout the abundance of pin striping tho ) but have an idea on that ! Onwards again

    More like sidewards , lol. Ordered some new seat rail tubes from a local source and they took two weeks to do ( bend and cut to length ) due to the lockdown and the bank Holliday . But when I got them home they where the wrong length and the wrong angle , doh .
    The guy admitted twas his fault and will sort it . Although I’m keen to get on with it , lol,
    Took the opportunity to start converting the tank to the leccy box , and started to make the seat .

    TriNortchopz . Nice looking bike for a garage build . I like the routing of the down pipes . But the guy in the pic doesn’t like either the Bike or the photographer by the look on his face

    Got the replacement seat rails , and have done a quick mock up . The rear end of the seat rails need to come up a couple of inches and the front end of them to needs drop drop about an inch . But it looks a better already than it did before . Took me a while to work out how to leave enough space to mount the diff , but I’ve got it sorted now ( I think ) ! I am splicing the front end of the seat rails into the top tubes , then I’ll brace / gusset it all up
    The top bracing point for my jig needs to be moved lower , then cut the top off the rear shock mounting loop to clear the new seat rails . Which should mean the seat will stay bout the same height as it was , although the whole frame will sit a bit lower whe finished .

    Hereís a better mock up the seat rails are where they need to be ( all be it propped on bits of angle iron whilst I wait for for the steel for the axle plates ) . The seat is where it needs to be , although it will have some padding ( and a cover ) . The ex tank may move a bit further forward , once I get the goose neck sorted ! . Gonna have to change the bottom rail , didnít allow enough room for the diff on tother side ! But I seem to be making progress now

    Just bought a pair of these from Germany ( custom stuff from Germany seems to be a lot cheaper than in the uk )
    Never thought much of the style or the comfort of the originals . If I remember my sports moped correctly ( lol) these should be better , and look a lot better to !
    Sorry should have said to use as footrests , oops

    Ok have got the axle plate done one side , it’s a bit chunkier than I had in mind . But it needs to be that tall , so the frame tubes miss the diff housing and it also picks up the two rear diff mounting bolts . But I think it can be made to look less plate like by having some horizontal ribs above and below the axle . Well that’s the plan at the mo ! Click image for larger version.

    Have got the other side of the rear end made and tacked into place now , the axle is all square and secure . Which is good , coz I had to remove the rather cumbersome jig I made Because it was getting in the way of setting up the axle plates .Will knock up a less clunky jig to finish fettling the axle plates
