Got any details on it's construction? Extended swing arm?

There was a R60/5 converted to a GS on Ebay a month or two ago out of Atlanta. Didn't make reserve, looked interesting.

R75 GS Construction

Hi Norton 73, (Got 2 Nortons myself, the ones with the real frames tho)

Yes, it has a later /6 swinging arm and tank. XR 500 front end, 30mm amals, and recently put on the original heavier flywheel in place so I could put the electric starter system on. lost some response after having a much lightened flywheel on, buts is just fine. R90 S rear bevel housing for the road but have an R60 with lower gearing for the trails, but motor is torquey so i haven't used it much.

I tend to use it off road instead of my V Strom 'cos if that went down... OUCH!! The damage! Just did about 100 miles on the Strom this afternoon in the NC sunshine. Got to the snow level in the hills.

Happy Days Freddiefudpucker

Any chance you could post a larger pic of this bike.

Especially the swingarm as I am currently extending one by 100 mm.

With thanks

Pezz :)

Hope this helps. You still can't see the arm that clearly. If I get more pics of the bike this weekend, I'll make sure to get some good ones of the arm and post them (or if people are sick of seeing this thing, gimme your email and Ill send them to you).

Ok, I have an 82 R80RT that I am trying to decide what to do with. Can someone tell me a little bit about converting this thing into a dirtbike? I don't really want a GS i want a bike more like these.

[quote=CrazyIvan]Ok guys, some other examples of great airhead dirtbikes...

classic airhead dirtbike...



Hi tech...



I know I would need wheels and would probably rebuild with good rims. What changes need to be made to the frame? My first thought is head angle. Would the existing head angle really work ok on a psuedo dirt bike? Looks like a rear shock would need to be adapted to the frame. What's this talk about lengthening the swingarm?

Can this bike be made into something better than my KLR. I guess it doesn't have to be better, just as good would work for me. Plus i think the chicks would dig it.
