    I am not sure of the frame weight. I have no way of weighing it for you either unfortunately.

    Another part of the puzzle arrived today. Megacycle 120-x7 grind cams with THR adjustable cam gears. All looks good.

    Mock up time.

    Waiting on the Morad rims to arrive from the UK. I could have mined and processed the bauxite into aluminium in the time it has taken for these to arrive and still not here !!

    Need to weld a bracket onto the swing arm for the shark fin protector as well.

    Apart from the obvious better handling with the Drixton, you will also save some time in future when you might need to do some head work. Will be great to do a top end rebuild without having to remove the motor from the frame.

    looking forward to your final results.

    Thanks Leon. This will be be apart every 600 to 1000 kms anyway to inspect the crank and freshen up so I may not get to use that feature of the frame.

    Hi Steve. I am located in Australia so will not be at the NW200. Megacycle is in California but you will need to ring them as they do not promote their email address until you are a client. I am dealing quite a bit with Dave at D&M in the UK. He has all the gear.

    Hi - would recommend Franco Cappellini in Italy for engine bits. Does excellent work and supplies some lovely parts...
