Hello Bend27. Yeh it is me, and I have had a few good bikes, but none have been as pleasurable to ride as the 1200 in the bush. I cannot describe it and it is the reason I am doing what I am doing, cause I want to have that feeling again and I have not had it with any other machine since, so, that is why I decided to build what hopefully will be a bike with that feeling that is strong enough to take the abuse I so love to give it.

That is the dream anyway...soon to be reality. I will let you know how it goes

Cheers
Pilbara

Hello Kill Meter, unfortunatley for this bike, I am doing other things, but here is a sneak preview of what it will be looking like.

I gotta get back on to it

Maybe too late to the party, but have you considered using a drive axle using a CV joint rather than 2 universal joints? CV joints have a greater ability to articulate than u joints. I would consider the drive line and FD to be the weak point in what you're doing.

Hello Lambo, funny you mention that, I have just the last couple of days been googling and checking out Gas Fluxers. It would save a bit of time in prep and cleanup, they are not cheap though and I hear they chew through hoses too. Don't haqppen to have one you want rid of do ya?
