the Speed Shop Moon Lander

Lots going on at the moment 
but still able to make slow but sure progress on the Mooneyes bike.  

Shaved 39mm sliders.
Not easy to fit a drum brake on narrow triple trees.

After machining a one-off axle for the metric hub it fit just fine,

not a fraction to spare!

A donation from an early CB350, thank you!

Running Firestone ribbed tires front and rear.  The bike is going to have a bit of that old school chopper look with a slight forward slope up to the bottom of the frame.

This thing is a monster but is going to give a nice comfy ride for me and my lovely passenger ;)

Will need to extend the swing arm about an inch.


Sophie is looking a bit skeptical about this one...

One set of two tripples

Got my first metal pieces made here in Tokyo, EDM cut steel tripple trees.  That EDM stuff is crazy clean, I love it!

Left me with a bunch of cutting but the price was right ;)

6 inches on center for 39mm with indexed bar mounts.

Nothing is safe from chopping!

Pretty sure I'm going to upset a few Beemer guys with the tank on my Panhead build ;)

I am loving it!!!
