I wanted to build a true 200mph blackbird that is road legal without no2 or forced induction , the style thing just sort of happen as I was helping a friend with GRP moulding and ask how hard would it be the design my own seat unit 3 months later I had prototype No3 out of the mould then moved on to the tank and the nose cone . The motor has just be me seeing how far I could go on my bugget. 95% of all the machining and fabrication work has been done by me with help and input from friend who are expert in there fields.

Looks great. Like Taetor mentioned. I hope you have something else to ride while you are working on this.

Here's some pics of a GRP dummy tank I have just made for a guy who is building a blackbird drag bike. The dummy tank is covering a alloy tank that sits a lot lower in the frame.

Thanks Wreckless , she's down to a trim 182kgs wet with the biggest savings coming for the exhaust and wheels , the most expensive was the tank and seat unit , its getting harder and harder to save anymore. One thing on the list is an alloy rear subframe,but time and money is the limiting factor on that one at the moment.
