Going ahead & start a thread on this build, but won't really be doing it till this winter.
This is what I have posted in the old thread.

[img]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Skip/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/img]I'm over at SpiderBob (in sunny Calif.) place & was able to get the picture into the laptop.
Pictures of the Jag rear end.
As you can see, I even got the mufflers.
It looks pretty good for a 1977 XJS.
Still need to figure out the gearing in it, think maybe it's 3.08:1, not to bad as the bike is 2.93:1
This will be a winter project for the GL1500 SE.
Will be pressure washing & maybe de-cage it.
Need to finish the GL1500 A Trike for the June Show & start riding.
The Collage up in Oak Ridge has Trike Riding course this summer which I may check out.

Made it home after sitting on the I40 for 1 hour due to an accident. came to an exit & took a county rode tour to get around it. Big semi jack knifed.
Got home 1 hour late & slept like a log till this AM.
Now I have to unload all of the Cross Country Junk Yard Goodies.
Truck is a little loaded.
The Jag rear end is in there somewhere!
There 4 - 3 spoke 16" mags & 4 - 15" wire wheel.
Side window weather seal from Villager to use on trike trunk I hope.
A collection of rear window hinges ( & handles ) from Fords to use on the trike trunk lid.
Will take the beemer to my friend this afternoon.

Drove out to Nashville, about 150 miles, for a Honda Del Sol at Pull-A-Part had it listed but had been there for about a month.
Luck was with me & the rear section of the body was there W/O the tail lights.
So using my Batt. Saw Off the rear fenders started to come off.
Not 15 mins later this guy showed up all upset because he needed the whole rear section for his car.
Lucky me again!
Plan is to use them on the next Trike body & hopefully make a new rear section of the mold using the front fender section. This way will be able to offer the fiberglass Trike body with or without tail lights.
The metal parts cost me about $20.00 & the tail light units came off of eBay for $75.00.
They are after market design, but stock lights will also fit.
Will be starting a new post on the next Trike build soon.
Right now just collecting misc. parts.





The bumper was gone so will need to form the bottom section.
Will weld all the parts together & body work them.
Then make a new mold & one release of the L & R side to mount to Trike body.

Will be starting the GL1500SE (1st red one) to trike with jag rear end.
Body will have Honda Del Sol tail lights this time.
May be able to make new rear section mold with tail lights.
That way could sell the body with or without lights.

Side view you can see the rake.



A little fuzz, holding the camera over my head.
New camera coming in soon, hope for better pictures.

Outstanding, so Skip, is this one going to be yours or is it up for grabs. What is the plan with this one for the thread anyway? Winter is just around the corner ya know. Whats first mounting the jag rear end or setting up the front end? the tree looks so pretty. Any thought on what your doing with the front end that might be different?

I know, to many questions, but my mind is racing.

THIS ONE IS FOR ME
The raked front end is mounted, no other plans as yet on front.
Next will be buy tires & measure, disassemble jag & shorten axles.
