  7. on another note...... we are just about to start making a pattern for crankcases to take four RGV cylinders...we "may" be casting them...depends on how we go with the first set of dummy case's

  8. Even grandpa lookes great! That would have been a shame to have started changing him!

    You should try and put in a modern front end, radial wavey brakes and that would look amazing!

    Keep up the good work mate!

  15. How's this project going?

    I can't PM you to find out how you when with the crank case mod and adaptor plate.
    If you have the template for the adaptor plate and the machines to make the required bits for the RGV cylindered Rg500/400 case drop me a line coz I'm currently looking at getting it all done in the UK.

    Cheers Ash.
