The trouble we had is most sellers would not ship items out of Germany, so we were trying to find someone in Germany willing to accept the shipments, then forward them on.

Old ISDT bikes? I have a '71 Penton Steel tanker and a '72 DKW Boondocker.

What about one like this:



IN the photos, the tires are barely touching the ground with most allthe weight still on the lift. The rear does drop a couple of inches when the full weight is on it. It is basically being set-up in a supermotard style, so yeah, it well sit a bit tall.

Hello Charlie,
nice bike. Sadly, your old off-roaders don't appear. Fault of my pc? I've got a 1976 175 cc Hercules 7-speeder. Your Boondocker is some kind of it's grandfather.
Shipping to foreign shores seems to be a problem sometimes, I'm starting to inform myself as there are questions about that coming up from time to time since I'm member in adventure-riders-forum ... flea-bay things. Up to this moment no-one won one of the auctions in question. Shipping seems to be difficult with a lot of hooks in it.
Kind regards, Bambi

I was kind of digging the original 'glass seat section.

I'd suggest looking through the Air Tech catalog and seing if there is anything similar but smaller.

Personally, I like the RS tail section a little better -- it's not as angular.

Love it! Subscribed!


edit: my 2 cents: if it going to be setup in motard fashion, should probably have a long seat and dirt bike stile rear fender...

Will be getting a seat from this place:http://houseonfireindustries.com/

It 's style is kind of hard to describe....a bit of cafe racer, a bit of supermotard, a bit of bits & pieces.

Very cool, but I'm sure the noise and smoke could/did get annoying.

Ok, our new seat is on the way, should be here the first/middle of next week. This is what Ted decided on. Can't wait to get it and see how it looks on the bike.

Oh also got a headlight mounted. One advantage to using the ATV motor....it comes with lighting coils and it has a minimalist wiring harness!

Got the new seat in. Looks pretty good. Tank is just siting on the bike and the seat is held in place with a couple of ty-wraps,but wanted to get a rough idea of how they will look.

Well, have finally disassembled the Frankenbike for prep, painting and re-assembly. Decided to go with a traditional mid-80's Honda paint scheme, inspired by the RS750. Before the clear coating:
