One for three, or Three for one?
« on: May 25, 2017, 23:08:58 »
Can I do that... been a few years since I've been on here. Working on all three of my running  rideable bikes (well they were...) last week it was just project #1 After a late night making bad financial decisions on eBay project #2 was initiated... Project #3 my daily rider was started after a long ride to lunch where someone  nicked my sidecovers while I eat, wtf is wrong with people.

Project #1
My baby 1971 BMW R75/5
I'm in the home stretch on this one.
What you've missed.
Motor- 900cc jugs and pistons with gas flowed ported /5 heads matched up to 36mm dellortos carbies and a custom exhaust from retro moto.
Gearbox- rebuilt and left a 4 speed, because they're awesome.
Electrical- m-unit magic, upgraded charging system, lithium ion battery under the gearbox.
Tires- need to order still, just on rollers for now...
Lots of small fab stuff mostly done by Junior at retro
First pic is how it started when I decided to redo it again.

Project #2
This is a more long term project
Bike is a 1995 R100rt
Junior and myself built it as it sits today in a little less than a week.
First pic is the day I picked it up, second pic about two weeks later (6 afternoons of work and hanging out at retro moto with Junior)
So my late night on eBay... I acquired a few things
Forks- fully adjustable Showa fork off a 2016 gsxr
Rear end- paralever and finaldrive and all the other bits from a 94 r100r mystic.
Plans
Swap the mono rear end for the paralever and put a nice 4' wide 17' rim with a nice sticky Pirelli Rossi 111 wrapped around it.
Swap the stock forks using a cognito moto drop triple, also a nice 17' rim up front.
No clip ons will actually be swapping out the current renthals with a taller more pulled back set...
Frame bracing
Drop the stock foot control down and back a hair for ergonomic reasons
New subframe
Performance exhaust and headers
Siebenrock big bore 1070 kit
Heads flowed and opened up for a set of big dellortos and exhaust
Taller fifth gear
Paint motor black
Get peanut style valve covers and possibly older air box (have both already)
Hyperpro rear shock
Obviously redo seat to fit new subframe
A heavy dose of motogadget for good measure

Also this was my wife's bike but she said I could have it for now... we just had our first child and she's not keen on riding at the moment.

Project #3
My daily rider 2016 Thruxton R
So someone stole my side covers at lunch. Mind blown...
Absolutely not paying any amount to replace them let alone the arm and leg triumph wants.
Rode this bike cross country last summer, great bike!
Plans
Air box delete
Build electronics tray to hide everything and open the frame
Black out the wheels
Gets some fancy triumph bits
Add racer fairing
Exhaust

Inspiration for project #2 comes from diamond atlier and XTR Pepo.  I've learned a lot over the last few years, plan is to really step the game up and make a bike in the same league as these guys. Pretty big aspirations but everyone has to have goals.

Main inspiration bike, although mine will favor a more upright seating position.

The exhaust on that brown/black Airhead is killer man, did you fab it yourself ?

Parts clean for now, they'll end up getting powder coated black before I'm done. Drive shaft in the mail to be rebuilt. Forks should be here any day, going to get the front end sorted before I touch the back.
