So a little bit more progress is happening with the Erion superbike replica.

As the BIG engine will still a longer process, I'm putting together what I call an "interim engine". A later model CB900 Hornet engine, with a 900RR head on it.

Top work Mark, you really need to back burner everything else and just work on 900’s 😉

I know new bikes are crazy fast. But the 90's stuff is good. Carbs sounds great, the power is useable on the street yet still brings excitement. Plus I think we develop a likening to era's we grew up in.

Mark, did you ever look deeper at what is making the piston lower on the Hornet engine verses the 900RR? Wrist pin height or rod length?

Memories, it was impossible to ride a hornet without doing wheelies 😁

Will the rear wheel require spacers or anything to make the sprockets line up perfectly or did they happen to line up without any modifications?

I like bikes. Especially odd ones like the VMax and the Rocket 3.
