My intention is to fab up a set up upsweep kind adapters and employ the tails of the footrest plates.

Yes, they are Dresda copies and now I've altered the shapes entirely (not as "swoopy" on the rear plates, and trimmer/shorter on the outer plates). Also very nice steel unit head steady adapter.

A friend of mine built a Triton several years ago using a T140 motor. He didn't like all the extra space in the engine compartment and being an excellent fabricator he cut 2" out of the center and rejoined the tubes. He then fabricated a longer swing arm to keep the wheelbase the same. It was an excellent job and the motor really looked like it fit. I spent about 500 miles on it dialing it in with dual 34 Mikunis and a Power Arc ignition. It really handled well. I have some pictures of it but unable to post them. If you want to see it, PM me. You might find it on the same websight as the BEEZERKER.
