XVR 750

Finally some progress on my Cafe Racer.

For the past couple of weeks I've been pushing hard to get the swaingarm done. It's a FZR400RR swingarm, chopped to bits and adapted for a shaftdrive. The rear wheel is off the same FZR and has also been adapted for a shaftdrive.

Yesterday was the first time that I had a chance to offer it up to the frame and see if my questimations were anywhere near correct.

Well, looks like we're getting somewhere. Next up is to build a welding jig and then we can really get a boogie on.
