Wonderful details and a great story; I can relate to much of it myself! You've taken some bold steps and I'm anxious to see more of your progress.

yes some bold steps, i could have probably taken some more straight forward steps ..... :umm:

such a weird build, love it.  :clap:

a weird build is right, probably wouldnt have been so weird with a less "hybrid" approach.

will post a small update soon

Thanks RDFL

This is something I have been looking to do since I finished all the
other engine mounts. The top rear bracket and spacer was too wide
so I cut the welded nuts off the existing mounting point and
placed the right side bracket on the left side of the mounting point,
also shortening the aluminium spacer.


Moving to the lower mounts which I was going to leave off, But I read
somewhere online that these engines want to twist while running so
I have had in mind to get these lower mounts sorted. I made the brackets
but need to have them welded to the frame.

Excellent outline and timeline. Weird builds, that make sense, rule IMO  8)

Reminiscent of my Suzonda project in many ways (listed on here), engine rebuild and mount fab, brakes, suspension....frame, carbs...the list, like yours, is endless.
I'm also looking to modify and adapt the RD350LC Microns to suit the GT200 engine in a Honda 400/4 frame. This project also started a good few years ago and spluttered into life, then withered and died for a while....but it's now fully watered and flourishing in our isolation climate :)

looking forward to checking in on your progress.....no backing out now buddy.
