Yep that’s right I’m building me a little 4 cylinder adventure bike.

I am organising a fundraiser for the Down Syndrome Association of NSW called:

Scrapheap Adventure Ride 2010

Raising Money for Down Syndrome Association of NSW

Ride to: Wanaaring

When: Easter Saturday - April 3, 2010

Bike for less than $1000.00.
Can be any road registered motorcycle.
You are allowed to spend additional sums on the bike to make it run and roadworthy as all machines participating must be registered.
You can modify your bikes too :)
It costs $100.00 to enter paid directly to DSANSW.
You can raise additional funds through sponsorship of your ride.
(Pay cents per Kilometer)

Above is the donor bike.

A mate, Shane, give me this little beauty for $0.00. Thanks Buddy

I want to splice on a XR front end, wheel and swing arm rear wheel.
Still wondering what fuel tank, seat and guards to run. Need to build it as cheap as possible. I will not be butchering this bike as will be able to return it to CB400 Four at the end if I wanted too.

When I first looked at it, it is very small. And quite light. I will keep posting as I progress.

I had an old KTM muffer I had laying around in the garage

and some old KTM Tank Seat and Guard. Bars will be a bit hard to turn.

Looks too modern and losing that classic look. Let try a R80G/S Single seat??

There will be lots of trying and looking and binning.

I have a set of alloy Krauser pannier and topbox frames somewhere in the BMW parts in the shed and will probably use them with plastic gerrycan panniers. Plus a home made topbox.

OldDog is building up and old TS250 which is below and tHEtREV is coming with his RZ350 Dirtbike.

So if anyone has some old XR bits I would greatly appreciate your assistance
