This bike will run in class MPS-PG-500 (which stands for "modified production frame, partial streamlined, pushrod gas engine, 500cc). The front end is Katana 600, moved forward with additional rake (wheelbase is now 62").



This engine has all the good stuff, including CP 12.3:1 pistons, Rick Kemph heads, oversize valves, Mikuni 38mm flat slides, WebCam "JimL GL grind", button flywheel, Barnett clutch, GL650 transmission, and will use similar exhaust to the ex-twin engine project. This one must run by the weekend.

Good luck to both of you Jim. At least your not empty handed for the flats meet.

Been cranking on this today....hung it from the ceiling to make it easier to fit the belly pan and all. The fuel tank is an old Midget oil tank, tach mounts upside down due to cable run, front brake lever operates the rear brake via cable. I still have to trim a few inches off the back edge of the fairing....had to shorten last years tailpiece (Modified Production class does not allow anything sticking past the rear tire). Also have to make a seat pan...

Still need to fit last years wiring, then it goes over to get the pipes made, then touch up the paint and put on the numbers. Heading for the salt next Saturday morning.
