    bleah, don't care for the red-white-n-blue theme, nor all the stickers. :ymca

    and, christ, its a sorta-dirt bike, all that fancy paint wouldn't survive one multiday mohave run.

    Really i think is kind of cool,,the work is very well done and I think he was trying to reproduce the famous dakar colors
    If that was the parameter half the bike on ADVrider will need to be eliminated...

    for sure a white frame is a pretty bad place to start unless you are a clean freak or wnat to know if you bike is leaking..

    to each his own,I do think is Hot i will not know what to do with it, but i think is a great toy for the right porsonality

    Hey Ricky- what is your bike situation these days? Is Gollem alive or what? I think this thing would be PERFECT for you!

    Golem is in a state that you can call Catatonic,actually is more cryogenic when is cold at night,currentlly I'm more or less bikeless but i'm working to change that very soon...

    I don't think a Aircool Gs can take my 40,000/50,000 milles per year riding crap, not to mension a few little jumps and 40 boxes with handlebars..

    That one could~ And when you wear out the airhead engine, you just go out and get another one and drop it in~

    that is true,but also is a few waster oilheads running around that sell for much cheaper than that and I already have half the parts.

    for fun i'm thinking
    ORANGE
    and for function I will stay with the Oilhead powerplant that i know so well

    Here's my old beemer, but this one is really made for off-roading, no fancy paint-job or stickers i'm afraid...

    Here's mine.. (apologize as pic's been on Advrider before). I like the 2" extension and longer drive shaft on the one you showed Ricky. Mine is still the short stock- which makes it very maneuverable offroad but almost too hot on the road where it likes to fall into turns and has to be positively arrested. I'm curious who did the work. The oversized front disk looks like Jim Rowley's (M.A.P. engineering) work. He's the one who built this bike. I'm still trying to get smart on all the airhead maintenance skills, not to mention the other unique items on this bike (Showa inverted forks, et al).

    My son enjoying the bike...

    This is the bike I'd like to put your Ricky bars on and I remember you had clamps for the R80G/S (1 set left?). Unfortunately I'm not sure the triple clamp is stock and don't have other R80G/S's to compare it to. Need to make sure before I order.

    Will try to post some better/current pics if I get a chance today... Unfortunately, I have to go to work now :bluduh

    the spacer, though simple, is not an ideal solution for extending the
    monolever. the monolever is not a straight tube. it's partly bent so
    there's room for the tire. extend it in the wrong place and you have
    trouble fitting a wide tire. (use one with less width or cut off the nobbly
    parts - ouch)

    I always love little kids on bikes,,maybe because I dream of them when i was little,any chance i get I let them seat on mine and make RummRuMMMM noises.

    wild man you have it much easier
    figure out exactlly the kind of forks you have on the bike(ask Jim maybe) and get a Protaper upper triple clamp kit,they are really nice and very adjustable(in a good way) and then mount the protapers on top..
