Id build one in a second too that's why I bought the motor but I want to give credit for the work that rebuilder put in and build with his blessing as the first pioneer.

Guys have asked me if I would help with building a duplicate of what I did and I'm happy to help but I ain't making plans

Since the merkel is essentially a custom frame that's what I want is the frame drawing everything else I can sorta wing as I go.

When I saw this at the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum a few days back i thought of your build.

This one looks good in "patina".

You could quite easily 'disguise' or camoflage the right side. Just look in the kitchen section of your local Supermarket like you did for the air cleaner..........sweeet

Ha... I think one repurposed kitchen item on the bike is enough.

If I ever get around to it I have a friend that's going to help me cast a whole new aluminum sidecover. He says no problem, I say we'll see about that. If it works out I'll be sure to get this thread going again with some pics.

Just saw this thread. You have Fantastic talent and abilities.

Stupid question for my curiosity, how do you shift that from a foot pedal that moves? Apologies if I missed the answer to this while going thru the thread today. Really incredible build on this.

Thanks. I get that question allot. I put a crank stop on the frame so when I step down on my right foot the pedals stop and line up with the shifter and brake just as a normal pegs would (except offset of course). That crank stop also makes it so when I come to a stop I can take my left foot off and my right foot stays lined up with the brake. It was surprisingly easy to get used to.

You did a great job with this build.

Now that winter's over, are you going to do any rides - with video?

If you get a chance to post a close up picture or two, I am interested to see how you made the mechanics work for that. Thanks for taking the time to enlighten. Pure "Genius" in that complete thought process.
