Wow, like what was done to the rear of that smoker. Nice pipes as well.
Damn, but don't that Buffalo look wicked! Before yer done, I'd suggest getting rid of the CV carbs for slide-throttle Mikuni's, and 'float' the rear brake to eliminate chatter. You can use an early GS-750 rear hub to swap the drum for a disc and caliper. You'll love the difference. Might also consider letting Woody's Wheel Works do a 'Superlace' and seal the rims for tubeless tires.
Got to ride this thing!
Here is a modern version of this design from BMW. Looked real cool. Much like this one. I love the out of the box thinking.
My 69 Bonny I built in 1988
Aparently not oser
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave.
Thanks for all your effort in this thread, you have provided a lot of ideas I am whoreing for my current build.
Lemme get this straight...
R 100 GS swingarm
R 1100 S (?) front end
R 1100 S Kat + mufflers
R 90 S (?) tank
K or oilhead switchgear
custom cross-wired wheels
I think you'l find it's based around a R100R
Is that a Harley battery?
No. It's a stock R100R, with an R90S fairing and tailsection, with some minor mods in the instruments and mirrors. Don't know what he's done inside the engine - could be stock or souped-up. The really neat thing is the trick underseat muffler - that's totally custom. The tank, suspension, and chassis are all R100R.
The seat is an early R100RS single seat.
More of a "buddy seat".
Or perhaps "all you can eat buffett" troller?
Nonetheless, nice '65 Panhead bagger! 2nd year electric start for HD.

Um...As far as I know 1965 was the first year e-start as well as the last year panhead...
The Servicar (trike) had e-start in 1964.
