What have you done?
I have built a 98ci single cylinder engine using one cylinder from a wright r975 radial. Scratch built my own frame, rear hub, and front fork.
What do you have left to do?
Make a set of tins, plumb intake and exhaust, make some bars, figure out a carb setup, think about how on earth I am going to license this thing.
Any problems so far?
I had to make the frame twice. The first one was great, right up until the tubing galled together ruining the downtube joints.
Favorite part of the bike so far?
I am pretty proud of the rocker covers, I feel they give the motor real personality.
Favorite part of the competition?
Getting to know the other builders. Our group chat has been the highlight of many mornings.
