Dean got the chance to start working on the frame. Here's a small sneek preview of what's to come.
It should be awesome once he starts the welding stage.

A new full suspension frame designed for our engines would be GREAT!....I hate having to scrounge looking for old GT LTS frames..

Andrew

PS - probably too early but any guesses on pricing?...I HAD to ask! ;-)

Dang, I saw this thread and was like "ooooooooh!" then I realized imageshack is blocked by my company's firewall. Guess I'll have to wait till I get home to see the pics.

Did you say you were going to use the 12hp Morini in this one?

Actually Jason the 5.8 can be converted to the 9hp motor. Right now we have the 6.4hp motor on it. Its amazing how much bolt on parts help.
Dean plans on routing the pipe (after the chamber) into the frame to help lower the noise level.

woah, in-frame tailpipe, now that's cool.

I still can't believe that Morini has those little 50cc motors putting out so much power. Just think if the 12hp model could be scaled up...240hp per liter, holey moley.

Boy do I like that motor. And the frame is really looking well done and a great design. I need to do my suspension frame but am learning just looking at what you are doing.

Today Dean finished the rear shock mount. Its pretty hard to see it but he made it a progressive suspension.

Here's a closer look at the rear suspension. Sorry for the low quality pictures.
