Hello Everyone,
I am looking to swap my unit A65 into the rolling chassis of an A10 Super Rocket. I have only seen a very limited number of builds with this engine/frame combination and I was curious if anyone in the Britbrike Community could share their experience and/or photos of this style build.

I look forward to hearing from you all,

PJ

There is an article in "Classic Bike" Feb 2021 edition (Issue 493) of someone who did a similar conversion - A65L into Plunger Frame A10 chassis. It is on the cover. They had to cut small sections of the bottom loops out, turning engine into stressed member to get it to fit.
Looks very tidy

I have seen one done but it was over ten years ago. There is a lot of room in an A10 frame so you might want to look at it’s position and if that effects the bikes handling, too far forward/back improve/worsen handling?? I don’t know as I have never done it.

The other thing to think of is the possibility of rubber mounting the engine whilst your at it. You’ll likely need engine plates made up for the front and rear mounts made. Depending on the lower frame space you might be able to use some T140 style mounts on there too.

That makes sense.
I will think about engine position within the frame.
Rubber mounting may be worthwhile...

Thank you for your insights, Allan G.

Sincerely,

PJ
