John I had built this one in 2014 for a German Series, some parts do not meet CRMC regs but can easily replaced with period stuff. Bike handles great. XJ600 forks, Megacycle cam, exhaust, slight work on heads, later put cr26 carbs on which was an improvement. Rest as on pic. Dry weight 155 kg....

Thanks Hans going full fairing just need to find something to fit . What sort of power did you get out of it ? Seen one in America making 75 . Well the hondas do about that with a single cam so why not?

It pulled 62 at the back wheel, but with not too much effort on the engine...there should be a bit more in it. Cant see 75 though
