Yes, been watching this. But why the fuck put it in an oversized diesel chassis? Hopefully that's just for development purposes, and a proper chassis will follow shortly.

By the looks of it, it's a one man show. Making the engine is a feat on it's own. I guess he wanted to start with the engine and see how it went.

Remember the project on here from years ago? He was building a 2-stroke Mille. It's a decent chassis, so why not?

I do have to wonder if he's made some changes to the top ends, if it's anything like my old KTM 300 the bike will basically rotate around the rear spindle!

I think he will adjust the primary to suit the RSV gearbox and the use of the bike.

It's a decent chassis for a big heavy four stroke motor, a light weight 2 stroke deserves better, and I'm sure it will get it.

In fact, if he wants to supply me with a 500 version, I'll commission Johnny Deetz to build me a frame, and I'll race it in the up to 500 class at 3 sisters!  :beerchug:

My first thought as well

@Fenfast was building a 1000cc 2t though wasn't he? Two cr500 barrels. Nutbar.

The RSV also has a low top shock mount, which makes the top pipe (which should be a considerable dia. for a 300 cylinder) routing easier. Christian Polverelli used an RSV chassis for his 500 V4 special

Developing a new engine and chassis in your garage at concurrently is just going to push the timeline even longer.

That looks lovely.

In some of my idle moments I`ve pondered how to get two KTM cylinders in a working track bike.

Two 250 top ends would be plenty for me.

Only a lack of skills, money and time prevents me from doing this.

Yes he was, I miss that man's posts! What a machinist! He and Millyard could do some DAMAGE together!

Millyard manages pretty well on his own, he's built, at a guess, 5 or 6 complete bikes in the time it's taken for 3/4 of a set of cases to be built.

How far are these two blokes apart.. might be really interesting if they would connect!
