Are you going to advanced, then manage attachments, and uploading then that way?

Yeah more than likely. I am currently on my phone and my phone let's me upload pics to this site but I know some people can't for some reason.... must be your phone. There is the Tapatalk app that you can get for forums that a good amount of members use on here that you could try, it does cost though. Other than that plug your phone into your computer, or email the pics to yourself get on the computer and upload them from there.

Did you use steel tubing to stretch it? And what did you use in between the frame and the extension to hold the welds together?

... and where do you plan on driving this thing? Somewhere flat I hope.

Some things to think about:
1. What happens when you hit a bump? Will that axle (which looks like a soft one) bend causing you to have an issue?
2. How about some front brakes just encase?

... and a parachute

... and an ambulance nearby

Be safe, please.

Oh, God- PLEASE tell me you didn't just butt-weld the sections together! Our sport is a ton 'o' fun, but I'm worried you may be in contention for a 2013 Darwin Award. Be careful.

Just going off how it looks (a total assumption I know) I bet he knew to sleeve the joints like I did on mine.

I have streched the frame itselve with round tubing with 250 mm long sleeves inside. The engine mounts are made from square tubing.
I'm now making front brakes, with brake calipers from a cbr 900 rr with 200 mm disks. The calipers are mount floating over the disk. One side is done, and i am still working on the other side. Photo will follow soon.
The rear axele is 40 mm with 5 mm wall thickness.
All of the parts i need are homemade because i have a universal milling machine and a lathe at home.

I have driven it now for severall times and it handles perfect, bump are also going well, and the frame is super rigid.
I'm still testing it and i have driven it only in 3e gear and not even full throttle and even then it goes over 100 km/h.
In 1e and 2e gear when i even thouch the throttle it spins making donuts and covers the street in a cloud off smoke.

Thank you for the comments.
More pics will follow soon, and excuse me please for my english.
