my spondon blade

Post by radiobloke on Sun 20 Jul 2008, 21:32

gonna be a long time til its done

going for a deadline of TT 2010

the engine was bought off Griz...hopefully you'll approve of what I'm doing to your old girl!

got the engine out of the blade frame yesterday, what a bastard job that was...the lower engine mount bolt was seized in....took friggin ages..had to get the grinder and a dremel on it in the end!

then sat the frame on the engine...

now here's the thing...
whilst the engine is out....was thinking about thowing a set of cams at it and having a bit of head work done,..just to spice it up a bit

in my racing cbr6's it was just cams and inlet/outlet machining, but it was a good reliable 20+bhp extra.

here's some pics.

yes mate..ZX10r forks, brakes and both wheels.

I have a set of 06 GSXR 750 forks in the garage..spare!

look the same, use the same brake calipers...but I picked the ZX10 front up so I didn't have to change them to fit the kwak wheel I had

gis a shout if you're interested!

Been busy today

started with this..



then did this



then fitted the yokes off the blade ( backwards) so I could fit bars to push it around ( no,...not having renthals!!)



then put a gsxr wheel in just to get it moving ( using ZX10r wheels!)



then took it outside for some air







then played with a few seat units...





not sure about the R6 one...got some more to try





so...good day
and I have more pics of the steering head for yan..top yoke should be on the way soon ( in between his Turbo bits I hope :wink: )

this project has just taken a bit of a change of direction...

I've just bought a Tuned big bore 1200cc Blackbird engine

lets see if it'll go in...

so the turbo will be going on the blade when I've finished the Sponny

Spondon BlackBlade and a Turbo Blade....that'll do !

Thats great mate! I was gonna fit a blackbird engine in a blade next too! it should go in the spondon frame no problem, although the mounting points are a bit different but I'm sure you'll figure it out! Smile
