I also installed a set at the advise of Mr. Bigwheel and love them. E-bay steel direct from Guangzhou...like them a lot..also went with the cheaper tusk bar riser and wish I went 2" instead of 1" , still better though.

I think we have our heads covered (ez-up) this year. That is one of my responsibilities. I will keep you on speed dial in case plans unravel. I would like to see that plated BW. BTW, you need that one from New York, it MUST stay in the group! Also it would be much cheaper to ship it to Alaska from Washington rather than NY.

Well I posted it

This is the extremely rare 1987 (only made in 1987-1988) BW350 that I converted to street legal. It gets looks everywhere I am only selling because I have to move. I've taken this off road (Awesome in the sand see video), and use to to commute from Brooklyn to the Bronx. It will keep up with traffick on the highway. It has a new fuel tank the old one had a crack and rather than repair I replaced it. It's included and can be fixed. Has a new chain and sprocket, manifold (the old one had an airleak) bigger better footpegs, new rear brake pads. Signals, mirrors and brakelights have been added. http://youtu.be/7wQ7GJlPM6g Price is firm. No FREE rides. If you want to ride it come with cash http://bw350nyc.smugmug.com/

$3500

Nice video, definitely a fair price. Must be a sad day to have to sell such a beauty. Good-luck.

Question Possible bike build

For any of you fab. guy's out there with more experience than I have..
It look's like it would be reasonably easy to combine this clean looking tri-z on Craig's locally for a grand and my swing-arm Etc from my parts bike ?
Just a Yammie version of the 250 Hondas with the missile kits ?
This would give me the power I seek with a low seat height comparable to a BW200. Plus all Yamaha parts..
I think it would be a little snorter...
Other question would be the rake of front forks, compared to dirt bikes the angle looks much steeper on all those conversions. Most bikes seem to have the axle in front of the tubes and on these setups they are all behind making the angle steeper yet. Could you turn the forks and disc around 180 in the triples to help that? reconfigure disc?
If I'm nut's just let me know...I've heard it before...




Also did the side cover Mod. as suggested on one of the 200's and came up with this, washes out grit a lot easier.
Before.


After.

You mean like this?



These are 1985 Tri-Z forks fitted using the original BW350 triple clamps bored out to accept the larger diameter of the Tri-Z forks.

More fun with forks - Tri-Z forks and Clamps on 200



And the standard front-end setup.

BWSwamper .. Why did you setup the 2 bikes differently with the Tri-Z fork's ?
350 axle foreword and reverse on 200 ? which do you prefer ? was this due to different rear tire sizes ? I still love that 12" rear rim you adapted.
What size tire is on the 12" rear rim ? God I hate cleaning those 9" rear rim's.

I'm back to being computer illiterate with a new mousepad thanks to Applecare.

I've tried the Tri-Z forks turned around with some unsatisfactory results. They ride like the 1986 Tri-Z forks that I'm currently running. At slow speeds they have a strange turn-in characteristic. In ruts and when going though rocks, they deflect a lot. Once you are moving above a crawl, they feel completely normal.

Normal, at least by BigWheel standards.

Sadly, I've had the same thought about converting a Tri-Z to a BigWheel. That is truly sad. We are a sick breed. I think that the odds of the Tri-Z output shaft aligning up with the jackshaft sprocket are about as likely as finding a plug-in replacement for the CDI for any of the BWs. Except for the 80, of course.
