The bike is coming together nice.  I like that engine mounting setup with the plates.  It will allow you to run different motors without needing to build new frames.  You can simply redo the plates to match the new engine(s).

Sumo, I know nothing about the Panther- been a Harley all my riding days.

But I do know I like projects that have lumps that no one else runs, like your project. This is a super cool project, and I hope I can see it when you are over here!

GOOD LUCK!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead. -- RFC 1925

Looks fast sitting still!  All the best for timeslips to match.
With a soft spot in my heart for thumpers I'm biased.  With two in there I'm following this journey closely, thanks for keeping us posted.

How about like these I saw at BUB 2008.
Two aluminum tubes. One each side.

You could place them right next to your lower top-tube, so the upper tube is still fully visible

I guess you have better control of fuel pressure and flow with a fuel pump, and with that you also have more options of places for the fuel tank. Burt Munroe style tank comes to mind easily then.

Looking good fella!

There is a get together in sept with the 2012 team to discuss shipping/containers/dates and who what is going and logistics on the other side of the pond if you are interested in jumping on the ozco band wagon.

Upto yourself really it can be done solo but it is a headache and you would be very welcome,I will give you a bell a bit closer to the date.

no space for a fridge in the garage so the beer is whatever temperature it happens to be sitting in a dark corner under the bench - its summer so its warmish at the minute, in winter its nicely chilled
