    and now the fun begins !

    As some one suggested previously ABS will be compulsory for new bikes april 2020 so my project may be dead in the water as I have little chance getting it on the road by then . I see they will be some exemptions for classics and collectable and I have just emailed nzta to ask for the criteria but I would suspect with this idiotic government and the car /motorcycle hater Julieanne Genter at the helm of this that the would not have thought this far enough through. I am currently working on the swing arm so I should have it on the ground rolling and intend to take it to the certifier and see what he has to say.

    Regards Ian

    why is abs a bad idea, it's not expensive when it's legislated in compared to not, it's a safety tool that a large percentage of riders would benefit from....

    except to check the speedo functions why does a bike have to actually be running to get certified?

    abs

    I am not saying abs is bad at all I think it is a very good thing but I doubt you could buy a retro fit system for a one off build

    What about a full system off a donor bike? They're essentially a stand alone system.
    I have a complete system off an R3, weighs about 3kg if you wanted to try something.
    It's missing the front ring from memory.

    progress

    Hi All. I have made some progress. got the swingarm almost finished and the bike on its wheels. It's always good to see something on the ground where it is supposed to be so you can see if it looks right as being up on a stand can skew things a bit. I am pretty happy with the way it looks. I took it to the certifier today and we had a good chat. he couldn't see to much wrong and filled me in on the procedure. He is sure that the ABS ( thanks bob re the ABS) thing won't be a problem under the LVV system but I am not so convinced. I am still waiting to here back from LTNZ. So far they told me there will be 100 exemptions per year for classic and collectables but in the info they sent me it only mentions "Imported " . No mention of LVV bikes . I do suspect that they hadn't thought about them.

    Impressive.
    Rear shock vertical to almost rearward stance, possibly illusion. Did you base that linkage and placement on something?

    shock

    The rear suspension concept is a copy of Suzuki XR69 with the ratios set up to give probably longer travel than the XR, the same as the gsxr road bike donor

    Hard to tell from the grainy photos that don't do your work sufficient justice, it looks like early full floater like on my RG250 Hybrid

    Hi all
    .fully finished the exhaust today. Not sure if I like it or not maybe a 4 into 1 may have looked better but I could always make another one later on.Anyone out there have a side stand surplus ?Some bikes like the gsxr have a bolt on unit and I may be able to adapt it to fit . regards Ian
