Hi Sumo
Yep that's the boy.

On my big bore Comet I run the valve approx 6" from my c/case vent, but on a vertical pipe so any oil mist can run back to the c/case

If the hose from the case to any device is long, treat it like a turbo oil drain: must go down-hill continuously, or it will spit a slug of oil out the pipe when your face gets close.

spent the weekend on this getting things in place for the motors. im just waiting on the club getting valves back in stock in the next week or so and then ill have 2 mild motors together ready to drop in here.

it was damned uncomfy - so i have moved the pegs, altered the bars & changed the seat. now my nuts arent compressed into my spine after 12 seconds - im thinking more than a minute pay be possible without passing out now...

and seeing as i had it stripped down to do some welding i figured id give it a waft of black to make it look more presentable. then a speedy re-assemble and it was back on the bench by sunday lunch time. another couple of weeks and i wil have the motors in there proper. then i just need to pull cash together for a coupleof carbs and mag rebuilds and it might make some noise.

Looks good.  With that plate system you can put all sorts of different motors in that bike.

I'm concerned about the motors being used as a stressed lower frame.  I can't tell from your photos, but the line of the tensile force at the bottom will try to make a straight line from the front attachment (top of the cylinder head or valve cover to the bottom of the rear frame.  Try putting in just one motor and applying some down force on the center of the top tube (bouncing on it may show up any weakness).

The beer keg on the front end is an excellent idea!  You don't know how thirsty one gets while waiting in line.

the way it all bolts together that's just not going to happen, it's effectively a load of small triangles once all the parts are in, its going nowhere. it's no more of a problem than it is on a standard stock panther (infant it's less because I have beefed up the plates and added the out rigger plates

drawn new to mounts up today, card ones made to check tonight then get them sent away for cutting too and its all moving forwards at a decent pace again, only lost about a month or so... not many more of them to loose if i want to get there this time round.
