Well if there is any rewiring that needs to be done you have that licked. . Lots of good points to consider. If you decide to move forward please document the entire process and write a book. Single Side Swing Arm and a Leg$$

not much of that to offer these days lol

I know from experience though that little thought is given to suspension geometry when these "specials" are put together.

The first 7/11 I built years ago looked the part but the smallest bump and even mediocre acceleration had the back end bouncing and stepping out!!
Despite trying different shocks and linkage configurations had to admit defeat in the end and seek specialised help. Even with that it was never as good as OE imo.

The Street-fighter 7/11's FYI were a GSXR750 chassis, GSXR1100 motor, VFR sssw, Ducati 916 tail end plastics, custom 4 into 1 under seat exhaust etc etc.

Yeah it is going to take quite a bit of research to get this going. In the short term I am going to start collecting pieces.
If I can't eat it, race it or sleep with it then whats the point?

Motorcycles are like women... once you ride one... you wanna ride em all.
