Picked up a gen 1 cheap earlier this year and finally got around to being able to start on it.just gonna build a clean little SWB bike with a decent engine to beat the streets on.gonna have GAZX10 build me a nice head for it and maybe throw a set of Pistons and rods in it and let her eat.had the frame powder coated a few months ago,gonna run a gen 3 arm,like to put a set of BSTs on it but not certain of it yet.ill post plenty of pics as progress goes along

really looking foward to your build, lets make some power. got a customer that just trapped 165 with a 2mm bore build on a stock wheelbase 08 streetbike with gen 1 head, no nitrous.

Maybe a little bit,I just can't live with a stock height bike.im planning to make about 190 hp with this one.pistons,rods,head work and cams should get it done...but stock bore

That's going to be crazy to race SWB I raced with another member with a 1st Gen and Gen 3 Swing arm on it, it makes the 1st Gen a pure 54" ...he did good still hit 9s but I imagine your going to have your hands full to get good times.....what's your rider weight?

I've been pretty busy with work and my Gen 3 lately,I got the wheels painted this week and getting tires mounted today.sent the crank out to marine to get balanced and polished,GAZX10 called yesterday with an update on the head...can't wait to see it. I'll most likely order the paint after Thanksgiving and get started on a few things

Crank is back from Marine,had the entire crank reworked and is now better then new.i gotta send it to one more place and it will be done.GAZX10 should have the head done after the new year and it will be time to start putting this engine together.havent decided on Pistons yet,but I have a set of H-Beams im gonna use in it as well.hoping to start paint as soon asi slow down at work some.started a Ti-winder install on my Gen 3 so it's taking up a lot of my spare time

This build is awesome! Such a short thread, but so cool to read. Excited to see it finished.

really looking foward to your build, lets make some power. got a customer that just trapped 165 with a 2mm bore build on a stock wheelbase 08 streetbike with gen 1 head, no nitrous.
Gaz, could I get more details on this bike? If they arent supposed to be public, PM is great as well.
