Great work, Max! I know your MZ is a labor of love, but I really dig the Beemer. The LL's will make it all complete.



Any chance you do up a run of 10 or 20 of these "period correct" nav units for distribution here in the States?

Well, time for an update, Erwin has been working hard on my Leading linkfork

He turned down the original axle



Made a cap for the end



Which he welded on



All parts machined, inner big rings have bearings in them for the caliperbrackets




Axle with disk and caliper



Turning down the tops of the forklegs



Trying to figure what measurements need to be done



To reduce trail he lowered the front of the bike by about 5 cms so the frontend won't stick out too far



Cutting the bottom of the legs



First testfit with all the components



He then found out ( as he feared from the beginning ) that the legs interfere with the policeissue frontfender I have




He decided ( after some emailing with me of course ) to turn the legs just a bit outward, meaning he had to make all kinds of marks and stands to keep the measurements






And it all worked out well



Hardly noticable ( and on a bike with hanging tits it's not a problem she has a bit of X-legs is it ? )



He had to redo the bottomends of the forklegs



It all worked out fine



This is what it looks like now ( Easter 2013 ), he bent the bottom just a little bit more to get it horizontal



I started this post with "a short update" but I edited and removed "short"

Hi Prmurat, I just recently found out they are Fournales. I contacted them last week with some questions and one of those questions is their recommandation for pressure.

Millennium Falcon: I'll ask Erwin for some info on the material !

Millenium Falcon, this is what Erwin answered:

De poten is 38x5 preciziebuis st.35 en dan teruggedraait tot 37

De schommel is gemaakt van 1" constructiepijp, st 33 koud getrokken. Wanddikte 2,65 mm


Which means:

legs are 38 mm x 5 precisiontube st. 35 ( whatever that may be ) turned down to 36 mm

Bottom ( what's that part called anyway ) 1" constructionpipe st. 33 cold drawn.

Rear brace made:





Tabs for fender on brace

Thank you for the interesting writing and photos. My first bike was an MZ ETS 250, I do miss it sometimes
A friend in the former East sent me a photo of Dr. Walter Kaaden, with his autograph signature. My friend worked for IFA for a long time.
