Nice work Joe,the Nissan engine is a good bit smaller than the Suzuki so it should make fitting the rest of the gear easier.
Real Clubmans have a square nose.Seriously.

It a serious little conversion, polish and port the haed, cbr600 carbs ur lookin at about 125BHP, 5 speed box, nothin wrong wit that,

It has to be said, i ve learnt alot from makin the 2 frame together, as both have improved on each other, however i want to make sure the frame withstands the abuse i m goin to give it before i make it for anyone, so until then
