Diesel Steamer Build thread
 
HERE IT IS

right now all that's there is the parts I've ordered or have. Just ordered engine today. Thus now I'm BROKE

PS- Skip to page three. Much to much boring drama occurred in life between start of this thread and when things finally got rolling again

In the above link ski thru the drama of life too.

As the project actually gets underway, you guys please do fire away questions and comments in this thread. I'm assuming you guys will have plenty of questions, suggestions, comments etc. Don't want folk to feel like they have to join the Diesel Bike Board just to speak up.

Look forward to the upcoming conversations.

Donor bikes (*pics will go here)

sooooo much unbelievable help from ADVRider members in getting the Flat black rat bike fiasco cleared up. You guys are the best :bow :ricky

*( sorry for the delay.... having pic posting problems, not accepting my jpgs for some reason. Size is way below limits and they are jpgs)

Very interested to follow this one. Good luck with it. Should cost just a wee bit less than that Dutch diesel ADV bike I hope? :D

Do you have a bank of carbs from the steamers you would like to sell?

I am suprised to hear in these day's and times that a board limits some how upload capability.

Course maybe this smug mug thing is better? Have allways been highly suspect of outside of a board pic posting though. Makes since though cause all of them that existed ten years ago are gone and have left a wake of worthless archived info all across the net.

There is alot of valuabale info in here. Hope not to much of it is in off site pics. They will be lost; it's a given.

Coachgeo 04-21-2009 11:37 AM

ok it's official. Got word from the Mod's. I got to host pics someplace else and link to here.

Will do that when I get a chance. Main info will have to stay on a board where it will be properly archived. Really suks to look thru archives for great info and find all the pics dead.

Annywho.... till I get an account somewhere here are links to the pics

Shiny Rat Cat: 96 needing TLC Triumph Tiger

Ugly Rat Cat: 97 ugly tired Tiger

A little Frakenstein surgery with THIS and whala.... what a beast it will be.

PS- let me know if you need membership to view those pics. If so I'll move getting a pic hosting account up the priority list. Hate having to join boards just to view pics on one thread. Im sure you guys feel the same way so let me know.

I looked at the Briggs site and it said lightweight design but gave no weight. Do you know what the unit weighs?

just under 200lb dry weight

GottaRamble 04-22-2009 09:59 AM

Briggs site says 196 lbs under "Engine Dimensions"

Coachgeo 04-22-2009 10:59 AM

:baldy just ran into a major snag

Gotta move the whole build operation to TX from CA and create a new build team you might say.

puts a delay on the whole thing. Bikes are in CA

Will delay part selling too.

Pogue 04-22-2009 11:59 AM

Where are you headed to in TX? I am in the center of the Panhandle and have started a 3cyl. Kubota transplanted into a Honda GL. Going to try to make a long travel expedition bike out of it.

Having another nutcase around would prove beneficial to projects and detrimental to bank accounts.
