Default Crossfire 150 with 500cc ninja engine

Started on a built a while back. Took a 500cc ninja motor and I'm in the process of mounting it on my crossfire 150. So far I have the rear frame fabed and welded in. Motor mounts are made and welded in. Instrument panel is made and bolted in. All wiring is done. Shifter is made all g with mounts. Just need mounted. Trailing arms are built. Need to build axles yet. Its close to being done.

OK, I get it. Since nobody could call and bother you while working on that beast, you had more time to get the photos needed to show us your progress! Don't recharge that phone ever again.....

I usually don’t say what I have planned that’s special but for you................

I’m building my reverse with a starter and a one way gear off a motorcycle crank. Direct to the axle with a flywheel or a chain and sprocket combination.

My father in law is building this same buggy with a 750cc Kawasaki that I gave him, interesting build for both of you, I'm almost afraid of his once it's done, I know what that engine did on the bike that outweighed it.
