Got the front forks disassy'ed & got a pair off eBay last night, $145.00 shipped with bottom tree & brace.
Removed the left front brake hose & will be putting both front brake together.
Removed the front brake hose at the rear master & need to get a spacer to remount the bolt. Rear brake master will now be for the rear only.
Started the engine & it runs smooth as silk with good rev's.
Had to replace Vac hose on #4 cyl., & drain the two hoses.
Don't know how old the gas is but smell ok.
Need to wait for front forks before I remove the rear assy. to start setting up the rear end.
Also need to work on the rear diff. gearing, Miata comes with 4.3:1 & 4.1:1, way to high!
Latest Pictures below.






Till next week run safe.

way too low you mean. and if you leave the rearend pinion in the middle you will need to use a constant volosity joint in the rear of the drive shaft. the angle will be to steep and it will bind on you when you first take off. i know this for a fact. i had to mod mine this way. but your not using the same rear as i did so maybe not. by the way how wide is that rear end.

just do it and ask questions later. if you never start you\'ll never finish.

Well, I moved Little Spitty out to the car port for winter storage & moved the GoldWing into the garage.
Disassy'ed rear of bike, removing tire, brakes, pipes, shocks & trailing arm.
Cut the bag support off leaving only the trunk support.
Rolled in the Miata rear end & checked drive shaft clearance. It's a little tight, but I won't have any up/down movement on shaft.
Have an idea on how to mount rear to bike frame uasing some 2"x3" tubing I have laying around.
Plan to add fuel tank on top of rear end.






Not sure on wheel base as yet, will be what the drive shaft will gave me.
Still need to work on gearing ratio down to at least 2.93:1 which is same as bike.
Thinking maybe a BMW diff.
The tires are 4-100mm x 16" x 8" rims.
Any ideas please post, could help me not make mistakes.

You got one heck of a project going there. Looks great. But really, only some people are going to see the real workings at this point of the game and find a lot of interest in it.I be one of them. Post often as you go.

Great job.
