Following is a series of shots of the heavy weight 6 cylinder CBX1000 engine having been shoe horned into the lightweight seamless tube Taimoshan CBX1000 Cafe Racer frame
If you are liking what you see in this build and you want your own, we are happy to design a new build around the same frame, if so then please email john at firstname.lastname@example.org
After a slow start to the build the frame is coming together nicely. Below is a series of pics of the frame & swingarm being setup in the frame jig ready for welding.
In the next post you will see how to shoe horn a big 6 cylinder CBX1000 motor in a small frame, this is going to be one stunning cafe racer.

The clearance was provided by cutting out a section of the reinforced tube and then bonding in anouther piece of carbon tube that I had made earlier for this purpose.
Next post will include details of the machining of swingarm pivot bearing housings and the rear spindle carriers that will be bonded into the ends of the main spas
