That bike was inspiration for my Trumpet - 1968 TR6R 650 motor in a early 70's Bonnie frame....
Eldo, Chobro, Chander, and Pig, such great inspiration!
I hope to have some good pictures to share soon. I'm working on the
triumph and my Beemer bobber is close as well.
Here's another not mine but lots of things I was thinking to add.
Pigford, I see some nice bits on your bike. What tires did you use? can you post a side view?
Probably a one-off custom job I'd say
Looks really nice, food for thought :eek1
Tyres are Michelin Serac.... Side views
that bike look cool and if the down pips wre painted black it would look better than heat wrap
Details man, details!
I like the two into one pipe and silencer- custom or can I find something like that? The swingarm and rr suspension is very interesting as well. What's it off of? What does it do to the handling- I assume more stability
I really like the disc setups on both wheels.
You should post this in the flat track thread!
Looks similar to the Dunlop K460 tread type, not quite as open in the tread
Now THAT gets my juices flowing! Very nice!
My new favorite BMW
I need a can like that for the R90
That's sweet but don't think so- never considered a Kaw triple as a scrambler. More of a high pipe cafe maybe but that is one well done bike. Color choice and the pipes!
Any idea where I could get a header/pipe/muffler setup like that?
That seat is basically what I have now, but I want mine higher...more like the desert sled style bikes. I'd like more legroom on my scrambler build. I'm not really going for the bobber style...doesn't work on a boxer, IMO, because you can't move the pegs forward.
Any suggestions for a taller single seat?
Addendum to above....a seat like this! Source...?
That appears to be a Bates TT seat from the 60's. Hard to find.
They turn up on eBay occasionally with widely varying prices and in widely varying conditions. Most recently, good ones have been going for $300 - $400. Good luck!
Diablo, Wrench Monkees built that Beemer and the pipes. You could repro that seat using your base and adding foam with a new cover. Someone familiar with bike seats could do it easy. Here's a similar design
