Progress..........Billet CNC machined centre steer components through Timken bearings in single sided A arm.
I started off with the centre steer hub design and manufacture.I then moved under the motor with the suspension and then to the rear hub and and swingarm with most things falling into place with the help of available parts from Andy at Sweet Street Motorcycle Parts.
Builder: Marcel Van Hooijdonk It all started with an email sent to me by a mate Harry over in Aussie with an attachment pic of a concept Subaru powered bike. It had all the ingredients I liked, single sided swingarm, centre steer hub, and turbos! With the email came the challenge that one of us need to build something as insame as this. To see if it was even achievable I grabbed some old road tyres off a mate Tez and a motor from Des at Scrapit. I placed them on the ground, stood back, grabbed a beer, thought for a while, and said yes, this is doable..............and so it begins!
