Started here at the beginning of the week...


This project has entered HMT status. The first cut was the hardest because after that there is no turning back. KZ550 engine on yz125 frame.....



A little bit of trimming and the tank and ex-radiator shrouds will fit.....going to keep it looking some what like a dirt bike.




Comments, opinions welcome

-Nelson

I got it mounted in the bike but, i need to remove it to do some final welding on the areas i couldn't get to. I also ground down my thumb in the bench grinder accident. So now i have blood, sweat, and i'm sure tears will follow some time during the build. Probably when i get my credit card bill for this past month will all the part purchases i made. I'll get some pics of the bike later today.
