I'm sure you are aware that the first generation of spineframes ran a 5 speed tranny. A roundhead might be cool in a spineframe.

V11 Sport six speeds and later six-speeds are different, and I don't recall hearing of anybody using a later six-speed gearbox in a spine frame bike.
ThAts been the burning question today, thanks for clarifying...

You'll note that the photo is an original style Daytona engine/frame with a later V11 Sport six-speed gearbox and matching V11 Sport rear drive unit.  Not sure exactly what you have in mind, but as I recall the engine was originally shifted sideways to allow use of a five speed gearbox with a spine frame and 160 rear tire, but the six speed gearbox designed for the spine frame eliminated that necessity on the V11 Sport.

I saw a '97 injected 1100 Sport with a six speed gearbox in 1998... at the factory in Mandello, all hacked up to fit with thermocouples and data logger taped to the tank.

Cool stuff, Mandellese style, pre-takeover.

Exactly. Im thinking a 6 speed would be a much better match if I go with the spine frame rather than the Tonti. But - will any 6 speed work (Griso, Breva et al) or were the v11 6 speeds unique? I do have the v11 rear drive and swing arm btw.

Looks just like my Scura...except it's red and may be a tad faster...mere technicalities, practically twins!!     :thumb: :thumb:

That link had a great naked spine frame photo which makes it easy to see the various attachment and pickup points. Reattaching here for those that didnt follow the link.



Would love to see a rear photo of a similar bike to examine the prop shaft arrangement

Brad - most of meant most of the frame plus the rear wheel and final drive. So yeah looking for a 6 speed and possibly engine.

And here is one of the items Id love to have yall weigh in on: will any modern 6 speed work in a spine frame or only v11 sport/LeMans? The question arises because of the vast width difference between the spine and Tonti swingarns...
