Wood seats? I didnt know they had the "Iron Butt" ride way back then. Its nice that they encourage the kids to climb aboard.

Where is this museum located?

the guy who breathed life into this little project was given carte blanche to do as he saw fit. it's plywood sides and pine arm rails with a nice stain that seems to make sense finish wise. I'm sure it came upholstered back in the day. this bike is designated for photo use so people are encouraged to hop on, they really can't hurt it given the condition it was in a month ago. the museum is Motorcyclepedia in Orange County, one hour north of NYC on the Hudson in Newburgh.

At Eudunda, South Australia a few weeks back.






even had one of those plastic 'shoo roo' whilstles mounted inside the front swingarm.


Hope it does exactly what the owner wants it to do.

Looking good! How's the KLR handle the third wheel being attached? Enough power?
Noticed you haven't gone for a L/L frontend, no bad habits like l/speed 'headshaking'?,
I found my last XS650 handled really well with the standard forks as a chair puller!
Cheers

I have a KLR hack and now that I have it set up properly it handles fine. Head shake for a second at very low speed.

Before I got it set up it was like wrassling a matteress.

I still want to install progressive springs and the normal brake mods. If you are looking for great handling, speed, braking, etc in a hack then look elsewhere. If you want a do it all reliable commuter/explorer then it is a good rig.

The KLR handels very well at all speeds it took a bit of fiddiling to get there but with a lot of help from a friend it is now very easy to ride. Muzza
