What bike did you source your WP forks from? What parts are needed to make that work? Maybe you have made a complete write up that you can link to?

I want to upgrade my suspension but don't want to go the Honda CR route due to single front disc.

James - I can't possibly say - depends what's in the parts bin - but so far we have the front end sorted - undecided on instrumentation, but the Koso appeals - and something special for the rear subframe - bodywork by Italian artisans, and no doubt the Chad hammer will get some abuse

The complete front end including wheel, hub, forks, discs, calipers, and brake lines from a KTM 950 / 990 Adventure or the twin disc 640 Adventure will fit but whichever you use you'll need to machine a new steering stem.

I don't have a written write up, but have a browse through my smugmug album.

Adds a Classic look to Modernized Perfection.....(not that the XRV wasn't already perfect...)
Well done!

Your Honda HAMAMATSU - ROCKS!!!

Hi Jonathan!

Congratulations for finishing your project with such perfect result.

You must be a true perfectionist. Choice of colors and the decals compliments the flow of the design in such awesome rally fashion. It is all just beautiful into the smallest details. I even like the color and size of the fonts.

Hope a spare set of crashparts is in the plans, so you can enjoy this beauty without restrictions.

Andreas

Congratulations on being the first to understand my subtle nod to history

All the decals relate to either me or the bike - and I was very conscious of not overpowering the paint scheme with too many logos.

No spare bodywork on the shelf - and yes, at the moment I do feel very precious about it - but hopefully that'll change in a few months - after all it can't live in the house all the time

Ca't say enough how nice it is... just as we said over the phone, let it sink in and in a few months you'll be taking her offroad again.
After all, it's a Rally Africa Twin now and it deserves to be ridden that way.

Once again... Erzberg together next year???
