Sounds about right Lorcan, 7s it is, maybe low 7s from the sound of it.

Pics of my first effort here: viewtopic.php?f=40&t=14346&p=134055&hil ... ke#p134055

The current version will have the body mounted about 4" further forward and 3" lower, hence the frame mods.

Picked up the frame from Dave yesterday. Next I need to cut the new body to fit, as I had with the old body but the cuts had to be reversed to allow the copies to be made. At least this affords me an opportunity to make a better job of it this time. The frame will have to go back to Dave once I've figured out all the mounting points for the body, battery, ECU, rectifier etc. I'm hoping most of it will go in the fairing. I have a digital dash to squeeze in there too.

Then onto the forks. I'm aiming for a fork length of 25-26". Already had the internals shortened, now have to machine the tubes themselves and rethread the insides, then make yokes to fit, possibly with a reduced offset once I've checked the amount of clearance available.

Spent a bit of time cutting the new body to fit. Made a better job of it than last time too.

Fabio, do you have a lightweight battery recommendation for me?

Mounted the fairing but it's all wrong. Too far forward, too high and at the wrong angle. I'll try again when the forks are in and I can wheel the roller outside and take a proper look.

Thanks Charlie. These are called Antigravity in the UK so I'm speaking to them about a suitable battery and regulator.
