If you have the tooling I can build the frame easy enough.

Okay, So I have been non stop thinking about this all day!! Here's what I am unsure about..... The rear end. how the heck did they do it.... I am thinking buy a race kart and basically graph it on the lower part of what motorcycle frame there would be? Also, Thinking about going with something smaller motor wise like a 360, 400, 500, 650 ect. Something twin cylinder. less motor to try to hug. Also how did they do the front end? almost looks like they modified the front forks and made them non suspension?

Also, I am honestly thinking that I can tag this. I mean yeah I will get hassled by the leo's.... But if I can find a junk bike for 100-200 get the motor running, Get a title, I can insure and tag it as the bike. I mean heck really I would just be doing a trike conversion on it like people do all the time. Hehe.... Then we ride....ride to the hill!! (deals Gap) It would be a kidney beater. But i honestly think I can build one of these really really cheap.

Curtie I immediately thought of you and knew you'd want to do this the second I saw it.

Looks like the rear motor mounts are part of the rear axle assembly. A bracket style. Looks like a single tube off of the "triple" but would have to split to accommodate the oil filter. The split would make it easier for rear "suspension" . Latteral pan arm bar? But with no suspension no need. Maybe a Springer? You really ought to keep at least one wheel in contact with the road.

Just sayin', custom fab was my thing. Did it for years. Just trying to help.

Curt im with you on this. That is more than likely the rearend of a race cart. Actually looks like the old cart srt up. Such is a simple combination to hold that axle tube in a tube with bearings.  Just shortened in half. I could be wrong. Let me know if your serious on tackling this I would love to help

Curt, if you weld some outriggers on it at about 30 degree angle each side you could really hang into the curves.  You cold certainly draw some looks if nothing else.

I'll start looking around and see if we can find one. Dont like the front wheel and brake set up though. Think I rather run a caliper and twin disk for added fun.lol
