Were at it again and much as we were going to keep it under wraps till a bit further down the build I cant contain my enthusiasm and just had to post it up.
When I got my first solo ride on a bike it was a Bultaco Sherpa and remember having such a big grin and heart pumping like a mad thing and its the same when I jump on one of these,maybe not the most powerfull bike ever made but got to rank amongst the most nutty and fun bikes the Japanese have ever produced.
So how to make a nutty bike nuttyer,its getting a turbo and a new frame,
The plan is to get the turbo and all ancilliarys fitted and working in the stock frame as far as is practically possible and then strip and rebuild a new frame that is fit for purpose with a good stretch front and rear to accomodate all the bits and pieces.
We (Dave Friend the builder of the GSX in Speed Dreams and Ralph from MK Dyno)are in no rush this time as after the last trip to the Salt which didnt go too good for myself left us pretty hammered financially so realsticaly we are aiming for 2015 maybe 2014 if we are lucky.
First Job Plenum then pipework to turbo.
