Wish I got a pic of how I was sitting on this beast, I’m sure it would entertain. Thing is I’m 6ft 2in tall and trying to accommodate my length on this frame will be interesting 😛

Nonetheless mockups have been done, and I did some heavy engineering to figure suitable shock placement in the rear. Even got pics of the math work to prove it, chech out the pics!

So now she’s under the knife once more, stay tuned for the latest.

Tempest. That is what I’m calling this bike. In the end I hope it will be fitting 😉

Here’s an update on the frame. Got back from Robbie at RLM, an awesome machinist and more who builds custom drag motorcycles, motors, you name it.

I trusted him to do the fancy work that I could only dream, but lacked the skills to produce. The results were just what the doctor ordered. Still need to map and spec out shock mount, but its in the works.

Cheers

While my custom spree frame is still under the knife, I’ve been scouting and sourcing all sorts of cool custom parts for this project. Here’s the latest:

cafe drag drop down bars
blue adj throttle cable
blue anodized valve stem caps
superbike gel progrips
progrip brake handle covers
ebc brake shoes
anodized cvt bolts
BBR quick action throttle
MSD Blaster coil

Making them work will be interesting and I am looking forward to it 🙂
