The plan is to fit a fork, front suspension and front wheel from a Keeway F-act (chinese 150 auto scooter). The brakes will be the brembo’s from the ktm, master and slave cylinders. Swing arm looks like it’s going to be a shortened triumph bonneville.
Frame needs to be strengthened with a minimum of 1 inch tube with a wall thickness of 3.2mm. I’ve gone for 27mm to be on the safe side. The engine mounts will all need to be custom. I’m really enjoying the process as most everything i’ve done to date has been stock standard restoration. Hopefully it will make an entertaining scooter to ride!
I’m going to bid on a few of the bit on trade me, lets see who wants them most!
