Nice project.
I am looking at trying to fit a gt engine or lx engine into an ld frame.
Do you have any pictures of the engine mounting fabrication.
Have you widened and extended the front forks to accept the gts wheel?

It looks like you have widened the frame loop slightly to accept the engine.
What do you plan to do with the radiators?

Tige, how well does this method work? It looks like it's exposed to mud and stuff... I appreciate that you fit a mesh screen to keep out stones etc.
Does the fan suck or blow? Does it turn on with the thermostat or run all the time?

Great project!

i have fitted a front mud guard to stop stones and mud, And the fan works with the sensor as it does on the gts, other than reverse wire so it sucks. the method works very well, I use the same one on scomadi to gts conversions.

front wheel
Not really but maybe at some point make a cover that bolts through the spokes , the rear wheel is 13 so the front needs to be, It one of the things you have to sacrifice in the process of bring new to old.

report
I built it for a client, Not for my self, i only tried it for a short run ,And it rode very well, but i will come back with information i receive from him,and updates on seat choice etc. The engine was checked on my diagnostic before it was collected,and all was good, The better test will be when it goes on some road runs, Like i say i will come back with info.

Your work is outstanding.
Looking at the silver one..the rear end sits up high.
I realise its on its stand.
Is it not possible to use shorter shock absorbers..or is the wheel size the problem.
