i acquired a dover r60/2 frame(needs paint anyway) transmission, and engine bottom, and i am trying to figure out the direction to go with it.
I am planning on urban riding, no sidecar, single rider (190lb with gear)
It does not have a front end, so i was planning on a /5 front end instead of sourcing an earles arm for it for now.
The engine has the crank and cam and covers, timing gears, one con rod is bent, from a knocked off cylinder.
I will have to cut it off to get the crank out.
But since i do not have cylinders, pistons, con rods, heads, carbs, etc
is it better to find r60/2 components, or try to get r69 parts to build it out.
i am thinking i need for a r69s conversion
cylinders(and related push rods, valves, etc)
do i need a different crank and cam? anything else?
is the r69 cost/work worth the extra power?
also have a spare r75/5 to drop in instead and scrap the whole close to original fuss. though since it is dover white, i think it is probably more proper to make closer to factory.
