Almost half of your budget is the fairing.

Sweetness

She'll be a beauty! Does the AT wheel really bolt up? How 'bout the caliper mount?
Can't wait to see the final product!

From what I've picked up from the TA mods thread (of which I am halfway through reading )I don't think it does bolt up but I think what he meant was that he already had one lying around that would bolt up (from his previous projects) - ie. it had already been modified.

I might be wrong though!

The wheel does basically bolt right up. I just ground a small amout of aluminum from the caliper mount slider for the larger locating pin on the TA swingarm. The only other thing is welding two small tabs on the frame for the mastercylinder. This mod is shown in detail in the Transalp mod section several times.

It should be sweet. Take it down to SC for the SandBlast 200 in February, and play Rally Racer.

I have been kicking it around every year, but I have not made it yet. You are in KY if I am right? I live in IL, we could carpool.

What kind of woman would beat the hell out of a Transalp with a baseball bat?
That is sick.
