ok ,an update
just returned from our speed week , my naked busa scared the living daylights out of me , with a head shake
( poor weight distribution, the main reason ) , this project is “ intended “ to be about a stable in line platform
theory is good !
so
the CENTRE HUB STEERING has been completed , represents a serious outlay for me , in having someone else cad design , then cnc machine the whole thing , my satisfaction is in making , “ designing “ anything i run ( be that right or wrong )
the CHS is something i could have done ,but i feel it should be really the best possible bit of engineering i can produce , and in this case it is not by me
I may sell the plans , cad files , in an attempt to recover some of the costs
the axle @ 35 mm is seriously over the top , and weighs nearly a kilo , so weight forward is on track and no one can be concerned about its strength
the wheel is an R1/ R6 Image

i now will start the front “ swing arm “ and use a hayabusa rear spring / shocker
be a while before i am back

The hub center stuff only showed up when I hit submit ... looking great. Not sure why that big hammer is in the background though! Any pics of the swingarm?

progress
but slow , stand by for photos
hold this thought Russell
you can use a big hammer a little bit , but you can’t use a little hammer a big bit ———- always have a big hammer @ the ready

Swing arm and hoop are 1 1/2 “ x0.100” wall CDS
The frame is 65x35x2 , interesting and cheaper not having to be weight conscious
the “ lugs “ welded to the busa frame are for a cross brace that will go down to the chassis rails
next few steps will make some serious progress , and better vision
