Camel, if I know you, you will bounce back quickly.
You have a positive attitude, which is already halfway to making things happen.

Thanks Tony,

yeah, if nothing else, this industry teaches you to be resilient. You'd never survive otherwise.

Well it's been a while.

Been up to all sorts of stuff. Spent my last R&R pouring the slab for the new and improved Führerbünker. Also poured the 600mm thick plinth for the lathe and shaper. Then I blew up my old pedestal drill. (Died from multiple injuries I inflicted on it). So I bought the biggest motherfucker of a pedestal drill I could get. None of this chinese sh#t, this one is built in Taiwan! (Which might be construed as being chinese - depending on whether you're commo chinese or not).

Most of my R&D time has involved getting into the Hayabusa ECU and associated software. Plus fuggen around with a wide-band datalogger.

Also built a crane for the grey fergy and managed to do some work on the Cuda.

I've strayed from the true path, therefore I don't think I'll be winning the Barracuda video and photo competition......

That's the main hoop in the background in the second shot.

Oh yeah, and to pre-empt Trojan, it's two (wooden) horse powered! yuk yuk! :lol:

Camel,

It's good to see you back at it again, Hopefully no more urgently needed Bunker repairs for a while.

So I guess it's full steam ahead on the Cuda with a well hotted up Bussa.

Cheers

Those bits of angle bolted onto your build surface... They to help weld up the BarraYoota frame by any chance?

It's not, too much work on. Too much time away and when I'm home I'm getting the shed sorted out.

But it will happen. Just over a longer timeframe.

Hey! Start your own thread!

Seriously Artie, what is it? Is that your current build?

I'm not actually changing the rake, I've raised the hip frame and cut the nose bars at the front lower suspension mount. It has to do with the changes I've made to fit the larger main hoop and wider hip frame. I'll try and post up some comparo images tomorrow.

I'm starting to get second thoughts about the lengthening the lower arm, repositioning the steering rack and repositioning the upper mounts. I need to get the upright squared away first. Might have to just buy a set off Tony and then work to those specs.

Yes, I'll cave in and buy them, I haven't got time... too much work on and too busy with electrics and electronics, want to use my Gen II as a mule for my data-logging and nefarious ECU flashing. Makes sense to do this while the engine is still in the bike, can jump on anytime and wheelie it down the road.... :shock:
