project custom build - 79 XS1100
 
hi im a newbie here from manila, philippines...me and my mechanic are finishing up a custom....we used an old Suzuki GSX front and rear suspension, an old Kawasaki Zephyr tank/seat and cowl...an old but longer virago XS750 swing arm to accomodate under the seat mufflers and FZX 750 magwheel with 150/80/R15 tire...im thinking of using a rearset and lose the front fender...

Welcome to the forum paulbaut,
Tough looking machine.I especially like the exhaust tucked under the seat.
Can't wait to see the finished project.
I didn't know the XS750 swingarm was longer either.I learn something here all the time.
Ride safe.

Hi paulbaut
 
Pretty cool mods :cool:
Few questions....
How wide is that rear rim?
Swing arm/drive shaft just bolted up without have to make changes to the XS frame?

mro
BTW, welcome to XS11

Welcome to the forum.
Thats coming along very nicely,
the rear wheel looks sweet as does
the mufflers under the seat,
looking forward to seeing the end result.

tnx for the compliments:)....used FZX 750 rear rim....it accommodated my dunlop 150/80/R15 tire...we are like frankensteins here..we use available parts that my mechanic Danny had collected thru the years at the shop...well with regards to the swingarm, we made it wider to accomodate a wider rim/tires, this is the only major mod that we did...one other thing, the rear rim hub from the FZX 750(baby VMAX, that is what we call it here) is an orig chain sprocket type, we did some mods to it to accommodate the shaft drive....i guess this is the second major mod that we did...we ensured that the rear tire is dead centered along the frame...:D

well done guys, look forward to the end result. Can you post some details of how you did the rear wheel conversion from chain to shaft.

Did you insulate that exhaust good? I like the way it looks!

tnx for the compliments sir...we gave a good clearance from the seat that is why we had no problems with the muffler's surface heat emmission.:)
