XBR Street Tracker - Moto63 style
« on: May 17, 2016, 09:09:20 AM »
Here are Michael's pics with titles;

A side on shot complete with mock up front spoked wheel and suzuki GS500 front forks. Hopefully shud be a cool bike once it's finished. Really motivated now to get it done for October stafford show.
This first pic was taken quite a while ago when I first had it on the bench, I was supposed to be getting some cnc stuff done by a local guy but he let me down big time. (Another story)

A pic of the fully stripped and rebuilt engine, it's now bored to 600cc high comp piston and HRC profile cam. Shud hopefully be a peppy little thing.  Ps this is one bit I can't take any real credit for, I have all my engine work done professionally by a local'ish engine guy

Thanks Tim, and thanks again to Matt for taking the time to post them. Now I'm well on the mend I'm really excited about getting stuck in again and getting it moved on.  Cheers..Michael

The xbr bratter is going to be a cool looking bike.

The suzuki looks even better in the flesh than in the photo (on another thread).

It's good to see Mick getting back in the swing o things.

Morning chaps. First off thanks for all the encouragement, always good to get some positive feed back on what one,s doing/building. Steve some of the photos were originally taken about a year ago when I was still waiting for the bloke to cnc me some bits up.(never turned up, another story) so I took the tracker off the bench and started cracking on with the suzuki gs500. Anyway in answer it your question mate that's my (now sold :'( :'()  triumph 1050 speed triple under the sheet, you seen it riding round the island yet?? It was a black one with the full arrow "lowboy" exhaust system on it. If you look closely you can also see in another photo the rear subframe of the Harris framed ikuzawa that I bought off Graham. Still on the "to do" list.
Cheers...Michael
Ps...thanks for the vid Andy....ain't heard that song in quite a while. Still funny :)

Just a couple of photos of my "tracker" tank, the piece on the left is the bit I've cut off the bottom of the tank, giving it what I think is slightly better lines. The other pieces are of what was inside the tank, I think it was some sort of tank liner/sealer, must have been about half hundred weight in there.
Cheers..Michael
