Another way of adding rake/trail is to put tabs on the front of the fork ends like this:

This would enable your handlebar stem/post to be more upright, giving you more room on the deck to stand.

You can still lower the ride height etc this way.

That was my first thought but add the brake caliper into the mix it got harder then I could be bothered trying (had no metal to attempt). i lost 50mm of deck then gained it back by shortening the handlebar tube. Swapped in the bmx bars took another 100mm from tube and gained more deck room than before ;) just need to paint it all looking like fruit salad at moment.

One thing I might need to do is a quieter exhaust at present it's not much to look at but sounds amazing! (Read) loud.

I have tube to do it I just don't want to make it sound terrible.... or like a Honda.

I used a pit bike exhaust like this on the "Mike-trike" and it sounds amazing!

Soft quiet idle, then roars like a lion at WOT. I only paid $33 with free delivery from China door to door.

It keeps the obscene noise levels down for neighborly relations :-)

Going to try equal length straight pipes that both will be about 600-800mm long at present the exhaust ends 200mm from the head and both are merged into one. Hopefully more bends will get some Db out of it and look less huckery while freeing up the exhaust side.

Otherwise it'll be Supertrapp time!

Did some engine stuff. Re routed wires etc and covered everything in oven cleaner and scrubbed shit out of everything aluminium.

Convinced my son to polish the rocker covers while i painted the plastic engine cover. Fitted an oil pressure gauge so I can see how healthy the pump is.

Frame is getting some extra love and bracing around the front forks.

I'm pretty happy the back end is sorted so will de-dag any old brackets not needed and whole thing will get a few coats of paint..... probably in  metallic purple or green I'm undecided. 

If someone could fold me up a fuel tank? I'd be bloody appreciative.

Jack shaft to wheel appears to have stretched it's chain nothing is bent so wheel must have smacked the ground at full clack when I assed off. She did a big rev as the handlebars did a few spins and ripped all the cables to bits fortunately the factory low oil sensor did it's job and shut it down.

Chains cheap fortunately pity they don't stock the gold stuff anymore haha it's so tacky it's cool.
