    I'm split.

    Each set-up looks good.

    But I'm leaning to the Garwood (clean, and simple).

    Garwood M134G it is!

    Made some progress on the body today, 5" pipe with 3/8" wall.

    Inner frame and rotor hub just about done!

    Motor mount is finished, got a chance to fit it up today and test the chain drive system. Works pretty good overall, motor has a nice mean sound to it that will work perfect for this application .

    Finished the chain guard, now putting the finishing touches on the drive system. For the first time today the barrel assembly and body came together for a few minutes. This is starting to look like something!
