    This one at 1340cc and with the turbo makes 200 lb/ft torque.

    Very good for a bike engine. I seem to remember my 1400cc 16v Vauxhall motor on throttle bodies was about 140 lb/ft.

    Yes! I believe the rear track is 71 inches.

    The rear wheels are 10.5 inches wide.

    Now there's a diff (Quaife), rear dampers and the beginnings of driveshafts.

    The rear uprights have been machined from billet and it's all ready for assembly at the back end.
