    Hi Az
    Here is a picture of the tank and seat post out of the bike

    From the weld to the tank is 8 inches and from the bottom of the seat post to the weld is 9 inches.
    Hope this helps you
    Cheers
    Terry

    Hi All
    Have been working on Rare Bird and here are a few pictures.

    SANY0492.jpg This picture is a mock up of what it will look like when the new Abraham Linkage is installed.

    SANY0495.jpg

    SANY0497.jpg

    I will have more pics later today as Rare Bird now a ridable bike with the wide crank and it's new wheels.
    All that is really left to do is customize the mount, paint and install the engine.
    Oh and I have re done the 3 piece wide crank installation videos so when they are done uploading to youtube I will post them here for your viewing pleasure LOL.
    Cheers
    Terry

    SANY0540.jpg Disassembly of the 4G too as it is getting painted as well

    Not everyone is going to like the idea of painting the entire engine and trans Gloss Black. The engine cover and mounting paint will get base coat black and 3 coats of clear coat and will turn out real shiny and deep looking.
    My idea is to try and make the engine disappear or look less noticeable

    Yes bill that is why I post it, once you do that to your mount you will not need and idler but for your stretch you can keep your chain tight very easy

    I want this whole engine to blend right in with all the black and be as invisible as much as possible

    Hey MaxPower
    On the engine mount and engine cover I used automotive paint PPG 3 coats of Black base coat and then 5 coats of clear.
    For the engine I just used engine enamel

    I thought everyone did that to their Grubee engine mounts....it keeps them from shifting too.

    Hi All
    Well Rare Bird is finally coming together should be done by the end of the week I hope.
    I have a few pics to show BUT the back ground is cluttered and it takes away from the pictures. At this point it is not easy to take off and put back on the bike stand so you get what you get right now.
    I will do better pics when it is all done.

    SANY0568.jpg

    SANY0569.jpg

    SANY0570.jpg

    SANY0571.jpg

    SANY0572.jpg

    Here is what is left to do, install the throttle, front fender, cut the rear fender for belt clearance, build the exhaust, mount the tank, find the right size of belt and install it.
    I am think of changing the name slightly to Rare Black Bird as this is a very Black bike.
