WR 750 F "Il Ghepardo"

Ciao Boys.
Some months ago I started to work on a XTZ750.
My goal was to create an off road bike starting from there.
First I visit some guys who race padak and other Rally with the xtz and I check for weakness in the bike.
Then I start to work.

I show you some photo

new oil tank:



new upper gasoline tank:



new frame parts to make it stronger



radiator protection



muffler ecc



lower tank



rear frame



and .... il GHEPARDO

























Isn't it nice?

Excellent work!
A thought: couldn't u use 2 side water radiators like most of the off road bikes?

Great job! The bike looks awesome! .....but that pipe is begging for the accompanying sound file. Would love to hear it run...must sound good, eh?

Nice.

This qualifies for "Some Assembly Required" so I'm going to move it there.

not built by commitee

I lack adequate words , but this art bike proves what I thought about the redesign that BMW(rotax) did on the f 800 ,standing the cylinders up 27 * to clear the 21" tire.
