My 89 KLR, touring bike build

this is a project i have had on the go for a while , i was meant to have it ready to go to Africa last year ,but it was cheaper and easier to buy one over there ,
this started out as a $60 rolling KLR i bought of Ebay, i stripped it down and it sat like this for a while ,i needed a bike for the upcoming Bridge to Bridge , so a good excuse to get into it


then it was time to get it off to the blaster ,getting them bearing cups out was a bit of a fucker , so i welded a few beads around and bing, bing out they came in no time

i bought this wheel balancer truer , tooly thing a while back and thought i better give it a go , so dug through the cupboard and found the various bits , the spokes are custom by Buchanans in California , i wanted to try an 18" rim to check out different tyres , i still have another complete 17" wheel so no problem if this does not work out

good thing about being single is you can build your bike in the kitchen, and not putting up with ,silly statements like , why are there painted bits in my oven ,etc, you get get the picture


,got the frame blasted, and i thought i would give powder coating a go ,so it has been undercoated with zinc and is a matt finish , lets see if it chips off , looks the goods though,
