Looks awesome!! I will follow.
Hi all, new to the site but have enjoyed the read. My current project which is just about to start the build phase, is a P4 race bike starting with an Asa Moyce built Drixton replica chassis from Northern Ireland. I cannot recommend Asa highly enough, a very good rider in his day and the fabrication work on this chassis is magnificent. A true work of art. I will attach a couple of photos here and keep you up to speed as we go.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

Welcome to the forum. Nice frame. I'm sure you will have many followers on this build.

Remember, today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday.
My chest fell, but, fortunately, my belt caught it.
I don't know everything, nor, have I met the one who does.

That is definitely worthy of sitting on the dining room table

I have been accumulating bits over the last couple of months for the bike. I will be using 60 mm offset CB350 yokes to keep the period look, modified to take 35mm forks. They are de lugged and polished. The front hub is a 6 bolt 450 disc brake item. The rear a modified CB350 unit with 20 mm axle from an R1. These bikes apparently run the wheels on centre, but not the rear hub. The rear hub will be aligned to the chain line and then the wheel centred in the swing arm. This means the rear rim will not be centre to the hub flanges when I build the wheel. I have CB 450 fork sliders at Maxton in the UK at the moment being modified. They replace all the internals with modern rebound adjustable items. These have been machined to accept a Lockheed period caliper and bracket. I have also ordered a set of their beautiful T260c rear shocks as well.
More bits arrived today.
The guys at Maxton in the UK have revamped the original 450 sliders with their new rebound adjustable inserts.
The lockheed caliper adapter was supplied by D&M Engineering also in the UK.
I now have 35mm fork legs, rebound adjustable inside the original fork sliders.
The rears are even better. These are so light and built specially by Maxton for the Asa Moyce Drixton chassis. They are just magnificent.

This maybe well be the build of the year. A Drixton frame is only a dream for me.
