Leaves plenty of room to run the exhausts, and room for a heatshield so we don't melt our backs while driving :P

Pretty much have to setup the rear axle, take the engine out, final weld it and its paintjob time. Then mounting cables etc and the front engine mount, should hopefully be finished soon! I would like to however acquire a much smaller rear sprocket for higher speeds, because thats what we want in a homemade GixxerKart ;) Btw why the pictures are sideway i don't know :/

INSANE mate..!

 

lengthened the wheelbase which is a smart thing, lol

 

I'm sure youd already planned to shield it, but i reckon that chair wont last long with the heat produced

Lengthening the wheelbase is a smart idea hopefully! Its coming together nicely.. heatshield is being put in place too. However it probably wontrbe running fot long periods of time so it shouldn't get too hot we hope :P

Bit of an update: did a fair bit of gusset work today all in 5x50mm steel mainly just to tie it all together. Engine goes back in tomorrow for final fitment of

everything like radiator wiring fuel system piping etc , going a bit slower than we expected ( cause now its getting a little overengineered) but do it once and

do it properly! just don't know where were gonna drive it?????
