That is fantastic

Is it one of the new fibre glass tubs? or the steel repo.

Cant wait to see the finished result.

It's the new fiberglass(GRP) repo. Currently it is as is coming out of the mold. It will be sanded, primed and then painted a mellow yellow/ Monza red.

Very nice. I can hardly wait until you post finished pix!

Looks like Jay may have beefed up or redesigned his tilt mechanism?

Auxiliary gas tank will be really handy.

Yes, nice lookin' wheel, there.
Good crating job too, from the looks of it (sorry - it's kinda' my "thing")...
Abenteuerfahrer - when I saw the aux tank underneath pic, the first thing I thought was "wonder where the filler is?"

I'd probably make an access hole before painting. Then you could always pop a rubber grommet in to plug up the hole. Would look nice and clean and make life a lot easier if you break a shock (something I'm guessing isn't too uncommon in heavily loaded, long distance off road trips on such a machine...).

We all thought that they are all the same.....not so!!

Jay, a good fellow as he always is, is quite upset and disappointed and now is in search of a local 2005 1200 GS for him to template. So far he hasn't had any luck. Stay tuned for the suspense.
Didja' try posting up in regionals? Probably find a volunteer somewhere in the vicinity.

I am sure Jay knows who has them...We know that Mike Paull has one with his DSZ(Liberty designed subframe), but he's on the road somewhere and just did the Tierra del Fuego on his 1150 and Jays Hack.

I plan on exposing the Tilt mechansim a bit more when removing the tub for painting. I understnad that there was a beefy discussion between Beemerchef and Mikepa about the not so waterproof mechanism and that Jay had it upside down..!!! The shock is kind of soft..so I am in the market for something better. Any suggestion? Also I would like to install the combo stop/signal light that the Ural tub has instead of two separate lights. The rear signal light is in the way of the future Jerry can. From whom can I get these. Another bug I noticed is that the auxillary fuel tank filler hose and cap is in the way of opening the Micatech sidecases.... Got to reroute these somehow. Oh, well...I will prevail with all of you Hackistas suggestions
Beautiful... getting fancy!!! No biggie about the TILT... it is not even needed if properly fitted. It might also be that after riding every day for 900 sunsrises and sunsets I am used to it...

Hope to see you down the road sometime...




But.... you really need that wheel and tire from Dave...

Be well... always. Ara & Spirit

Hi Beemerchef....good hearing from you again. I know about the pusher tire but have been unable in getting one, it seems that Dave(inmate Stroker????) isn't producing these tires en masse, so I am waiting for him to solicit our needs before building them in quantities. Also he will have to differentiate the wheel mounts for those wanting them for their 1100; 1150, and 1200 Gs'es. He seems to build them in-house?
