Cmon dave, you know I love your work!
Tightened up the mirrors, the suspension goes up and down, and the seat latch now works.
Only trouble is the RS bars make it difficult to stand up going over jumps (I'm 6' 2" or something like that) and there's nothing to grab with yer knees to keep yer butt on the seat.
Much like jumping a F100 without a seat belt I 'spose.
dirt bikes, we don need no steenkin dirt bikes
I kept thinking the windshield was going to hit me in the nose!
Not that much deep water in Oz
I think the airbox had to be integrated because wirh the big box frame there was no longer any room for a regular airbox. Quite a serendipitous arrangement, it seems.
The same gentleman who rode it in the Condo this year will be taking it to Safari...Rob Colling, i thought his name was
He's been through the WP forks, right side up 50 extremes for rtw type builds and usually 4860's for the more race oriented ones.
Being able to buy decent second hand WP50's that were not totally worn out was basically his last reported (to me) only problem with them, and the DRZ forks have probably completely solved that problem and are arguably just as good (maybe better, but don't tell me that)
I like this new one a lot.
Further evidence that Mr. Rooney understands the issues.
Wow indeed. Want... no wait. Want to see someone else wail on it.
Here's the minty dirt squirt that just showed up in my Church. Built by a man from Alabama, being sold to a good friend of mine. 750cc engine mit kick, nice front end, PD G/S tank, short seat. Rickman rack not installed. Other obvious and unseen farkles.
The rear shocks look line they are to short compared with the front end. Plus the silencer looks heavy a smaller one would be better.
It was built to be an homage to a on ISDT bikes from the past.
It all works. Silencers are off a Triumph. It's all stainless.
Made to just be a good motorcycle. An all rounder. Something you could joyfully do a dirt road or pick your way carefully along a trail - then ride home on the interstate.
I want more! Gimmy MORE!
If you want more than finish your own project....
Airheads must have a lot of issues
It's more the rider really ...
That's what she said....sorry , had to be done.
I've seen a lot of incredible airhead GSes but that's on another level.
Does anybody have a video of that crossover/muffler idling?
The best place to get answers is from the horses mouth. Paul's contact details are on my blog linked in my signature. Why not give him a call? I can tell you the bike uses adapters on the box that are available from a few places these days. A fair few road registered touring bikes a running the collector mufflers in Australia and at least one is navigating bigger pastures. Not sure of any sound or movie files of them, but if I find one will blog it. More images and info will be blogged also. Just kinda busy. I did put an image of the frame on the blog. I'd link it here but having trouble with phone technology!
I've been following this thread for a few weeks now after deciding that my '92 GS-PD needs an update. Thanks for all the inspiration and good ideas.
Keep it coming!
