xt350 with tzr250 motor

Well not too much done today, took the frame off the engine and took out the rear suspension, then arc welded a plate onto the frame for the rear engine mount.

Can’t see too well in the pics but the welds turned out beautiful!

Used 6mm steel because it’s all i had, 4mm would have been lighter with a little brace around the back probably stiffer too.

Gotta place the engine back into the frame now and continue with the rear mount.

Had a look on bikepics.com last night, some hardcore xt’s there and as a supermotard it really looks well as, not tempted to do that unless i really can’t afford tyres. More then a fair share of pics with blown engines in them 🙂
