Scott's 3XV track bike
« on: April 27, 2013, 10:49:01 AM »
Right, I have a pile of parts that I would like to transform into a dedicated track only cycle.
Need to pull finger and get cracking so by starting this thread I may actually turn some spanners and source a few parts.
Will take a few months, not much to get a roller done, some paint and elbow grease! Motor will take a while (crank needed, powervalves needed, nicasil needed, porting needed, etc etc needed.......) so ya, hoping this thread will motivate.

Will post some pics of the pile of parts later.........

Your complete crank is sitting here for less than half the price of the parts to repair a used one. And half the price of a new one.
I feel like I helped you along a bit there. Must I bring it Friday?

So I rounded up all the parts today! Lots of cleaning, polishing and painting ahead. Sending a load of parts for sandblasting this week. Will post some pics soon.

Hi Guys;

That TZ crank is a work of art you can see it is ment to rotate at very high velocities. The 3xv crank should be a breeze I am getting all the tooling made for the TZ crank; so will have everything to do a 3xv crank.

Started stripping the donor bike this evening. Took a long look at the wiring I need to remove. Now the sparky stuff really isn't my strong point so I have 2 questions.

First is the key ignition, do i just unplug? I recall that's how I got my RZ50 going when i lost the key at school back in the day.

Second the sidestand switch, how do I bridge it?
