    Received my Hack yesterday from Dauntless(M72D) as promised. Here she is being unpacked and sorted out. I ordered her unpainted as I plan on a different color scheme. Will report daily or weekly updates pertaining to attaching her to my 2005 1200 GS as well as painting both bike and tub. Stay tuned....

    It's the new fiberglass(GRP) repo. Currently it is as is coming out of the mold. It will be sanded, primed and then painted a mellow yellow/ Monza red.

    Very nice. I can hardly wait until you post finished pix!

    Looks like Jay may have beefed up or redesigned his tilt mechanism?

    Yes, nice lookin' wheel, there.
    Good crating job too, from the looks of it (sorry - it's kinda' my "thing")...
    Abenteuerfahrer - when I saw the aux tank underneath pic, the first thing I thought was "wonder where the filler is?" :lol3

    I'd probably make an access hole before painting. Then you could always pop a rubber grommet in to plug up the hole. Would look nice and clean and make life a lot easier if you break a shock (something I'm guessing isn't too uncommon in heavily loaded, long distance off road trips on such a machine...).

    I am sure Jay knows who has them...We know that Mike Paull has one with his DSZ(Liberty designed subframe), but he's on the road somewhere and just did the Tierra del Fuego on his 1150 and Jays Hack.

    Beautiful... getting fancy!!! No biggie about the TILT... it is not even needed if properly fitted. It might also be that after riding every day for 900 sunsrises and sunsets I am used to it...

    Hope to see you down the road sometime...

    Hi Beemerchef....good hearing from you again. I know about the pusher tire but have been unable in getting one, it seems that Dave(inmate Stroker????) isn't producing these tires en masse, so I am waiting for him to solicit our needs before building them in quantities. Also he will have to differentiate the wheel mounts for those wanting them for their 1100; 1150, and 1200 Gs'es. He seems to build them in-house?

    Actually he has a very capable machinist making them... last I heard he was making about 10 of them. Do you want his e mail? he is working right now but will be home next week. Just talked to him yesterday as I am going to try a snow/mud tire!!! I understand about the fittings... I put this wheel on much easier than the stock! Beautiful job... Let me know, anything I can do to help... By getting 12K on the front and car this has really opened up my riding!!! I was getting 3K... and much $'s to replace them

    Be well, Ara & Spirit

    We are starting to catch up on wheel orders, but thankfully there is a lot of new interest. It seems that quite a few hack pilots were burning up too many tires. Send me a PM and we will get you on the list for a wheel. Thanks, Stroker

    Abenteuefaher, your new rig is a work of art. I can't wait to see it in person. Jay's new subframe and hack frame are worlds apart from the earlier model. I feel a little foolish as after backtacking thru your thread I realize (and remember) that you are wanting a pusher wheel for a 1200GS. I need to get my hands on a 1200 wheel so we can reverse engineer a proto-type pusher wheel to try on your rig. Congradulations on your project! Stroker

    That hack is the bee's knees! That aux fuel tank idea is getting copied! Hope you take it as a compliment.

    No doubt you will have one beautiful rig when you're done Elmer!! :clap :clap

    You're in good hands with Jay, he'll come though. Too bad about the hickup but things happen.

    Oh, Hey, watch that Ara dude you'll get that nice paint chipped up if you ride with him :evil
