The fact that he's a buddy aside... The sheer lunacy involved in cutting two prized and somewhat hard to find machines apart, than welding them together is too awesome to discount... Not to mention that one was a 100% original, 300 mile, 42 year old machine. Haha. If that isn't some rock and roll bike building, I don't know what is.

That said, everything posted so far is badass and well deserving of a beer and an "atta boy" for sure. Keep being rad people. Theres too much boring out there.
I took the shell off of my racing snail thinking it would make him faster.

It just made him more sluggish.

Isn't the point of this thread specific modifications? It's kind of confusing when you just name a bike and point to the build thread.

That was the hope, but I didn't want to lock it down too much.  We'll see what the voters have to say about it?

You did! Haha..  And the Ural back there. Both awesome bikes and likely winners of a few of these mod threads, but pick something specific.

Read what I wrote fella. Cut two bikes apart. Weld the front half of one to the rear of another to create a different bike. Pretty serious mod if ya ask me. ;)

Damn, some great work going on around here. Most of it makes me want to pack up that damn kickstand and go home. I kinda  feel like that kid at the playground that shows up with his new pedal powered big wheel, only to look over and see a turbo charged gang of internal combustion powered big wheels already there.

Great stuff folks.

My bad, Mike. The way I read it was that he had a bike + a donor. Didn't get the mod you were referring to.

Yeah. I'm not good with words. Ha. Honestly, I should have explained the specific mod in more detail.

Ok you want specifics. Whitedragoon took an alternator off of a Japanese car and machined it to fit on his Ural engine where the stock stator was fit.

These are all just growing pains this is a new idea it will take a few weeks to run well. if nothing else it will be a good reference for new guys to see what is poss. if you force your self to solve a problem in a in a creative fashion. i mean lets be honest im not gonna check the majority of the cb builds  some one else may hate 2 strokes haha or me. thats a hell of a reason not to see different ways of doing something.

I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.
