The swingarm is finished and checked in the nearly completed frame >

One of the many stages of mockup. There is a lot of building and "un-building". Rear shocks are Works Performance >

Figuring out the belt drive using the Jawa speedway clutch. 3/8" plywood was an easy way to figure out the shape of the transmission plates >

Rear brake lever was Tig-welded together using the tapered and ovalized lower part of an Excelsior fork tube. Bronze bushing was machined for a slight press fit, then honed on a Sunnen "pin hole" grinder >

Rear brake lever is mocked up with the master cylinder from an Aprilia. You can see the bracing on the swingam, made from a curved tube and sheet steel >
