Only if it's on a bike in the northern hemisphere!
Actually, with the amount of the stuff they are digging up & sending to China, you could probably see it on some of their bikes too


Richard. That's a bloody tractor tyre!

And the 'off road only' one in the set of three - do you need a longer rear damper, or is it designed to clear the mudd off the swingarm & the inner mud guard whilst riding?

WinterContact may be ideal for some of our riding, but maybe too soft for summer &/or bitumen.

Anyway, lets get back to some photos of outfits.

Erik. Tasty.

OK. Pictures of details also allright?
Earlier in this thread we were talking about ease of repair. Disadvantage of the BMW4v outfits like the ones I built is, that the exhaust has to come off to take the rear wheel off. Some years back we developed a machined quick-coupling (based on a commercially available s.s. clamp)for a Subaru Impreza manifold we manufactured. Redrawing it to the the right measurements gave me a solution to take the exhaust off in 30 seconds:



It also enabled me to adjust the the angle to the outside a bit at the weld, to clear the exhaust from the wider wheel (together with bending the subframe to the outside a "little")

Erik, that is one fine piece of engineering, very neat!

If it's a repeat, I missed it the first time.
There are some creative ideas there...

tyres

on the tyre topic, I found that vauxhall vx220 sports cars have a bridgestone 175/55 17 front which suits the back of mine just fine.


It was roughly the same price as a bike tyre but should last better. Its a sod to seal though.

Been painting a wheel for the 'chair' today, looks great & more in keeping than the 'slotmag' thats on at the mo.
