    Looks tight Mint,I wish this tranformation goes as good .On a positive note I modded the tank on tonite and it's gonna look killer.Checked it tonite via a tri-Z frt end and things look good.

    wow...nice conversion...usually the bike to trike conversions dont seem to sit right but that just looks like a streched out 350x. even sits about right....

    well, thats the reason I posted it, seems sandpuppi101 was about to mess with the rake and I wanted to show him it's not necessary....

    so before I get for highjacking or for being a let me say I can't wait til sandpuppi101 gets the project done and gives us all a ride report...XR600? conversion??...mines a 500 and hooks up, can't imagine what sandpuppi101's 600 will do.....we are talking THUMPER !!!!!

    BTW this isn't a pic of "The Nick"....which is a chromed Nicholson framed +600cc and TURBO'D

    sandpuppi101,

    I'm not a fabricator by any means, but I have alot of pics of "The Mutts" frame if you'd like some for ideas or reference...don't know if you need it or if it will help, but I'll offer it anyways and congrats on the project, after riding it you'll never go back to a 350X...it's like having a 200x, then riding a 350x and expecting to go back to the 200x...hard to do my friend

    Just lower your rear subframe down so the seat sits flat and not kicked up at the end. (trying to clear that rear tyre that isnt there any more). Apparently with the seat foam off the seat pan you can heat it with a heat gun to mold it to the new angle. Hopefully It will look like a factory job. Good luck

    Post up some more pictures when you can.

    Cheers

    Update on the ATC 600X

    Well the swinger is in it's final stages of being done.Ended up bringing it back 5 inches which gave me almost 22 on the total length.The next issue is the bottom wishbone mount,which is gonna be relatively easy .On the swinger we went with cutting off the whole tube and starting over,and just putting in new tube instead of cutting and splicing pieces.Another thing that I am gonna do is box the rear swinger,to prevent any twisting,and a few more odd's and end's on it.The extenstion did change the rake to what I would say is acceptable,The pic's is before I came up with the actual bottom cradle height.The pic show's it at 8 3/4 off the floor ,but when all is said and done the bottom of the cradle will be at 11 and some change.I am taking into effect the load of the motor on the machine,It will be pretty close ( with-in an inch),to the stock 350x height. The stock 600 subframe is off and the 350X subframe is gonna be a little tricky to get on but not to bad,all the 350X stock plastic is gonna fit easily.The tank will be the begining of that tabockle,I am gonna start from the front ,lining up the tank as close to the dip stick as possible and blend the whole frame together from there,The motor should be in it here in a week or so ,so I can dry fit everything and get my placement for the pegs and brake assembly and linkage.Still got a long way to go but it will be done for TF'07 ,unless something drastic should happen.

    thats going to be a BEAST. I have a 86 600R and it's such a hooligan bike. the power is great. only thing that sucks is kicking it over.

    good idea with the frame swap, I always like the oil in frame idea, less crap to bolt on.

    note on the engine, make sure the threads for the head are in good shape, I went through hell getting mine right, one got messed up and it kept blowing the head gasket, eventually I had all the threads replaced with steel inerts.

    my only question is, is the kicker going to clear?

    The kicker is gonna be really close with the fenders ,But if I have to cut a bit off the bottom to clear then I will have to cut 'em I guess.I know it will fit in the frame ,no problem.And Yeah Aussie,Joe is gonna be at TF too,he need's to get on his 350X if he's gonna take that..I hope this 600 beat's his Banshee into the ground,LOL... That will be worth building it rite there!

    Good News,Yahoo!!!

    Well the frame is going really good,actually go sent out for sandblasting Tuesday,but the good news is I found a head for her.I have been looking all over the country for one in good shape and low and behold the other nite while crusing E-Bay I find one local.So I Bid to win and went and picked it up yesterday,Bolt on", gotta love it. I just threw the head on to make sure all was good,I think all I need now is the gasket kit and I'm ready for assembly.You guy's think I should do the polished motor like my '86 350X on her???Could use some carb's for her if anybody's got any laying around ,but I should have her done in 4-5 weeks ,Hopefully...
