now that is one sweet looking moto!
Aluminum or chrome scrambler style fender up front, and I would think that it's pretty damned near perfect!
I've been pondering this fender question. Going back and forth between the airheads scrambler and dirtbike threads. Stylistically speaking...it strikes me that the scrambler motif involves a chrome/stainless fender, low to the tire. The dirtbike motif is a higher fender, painted to match the tank.
I'm inclined to the low metal fender in front; higher metal fender in the back. Need to think about how to attach it to my lower fork brace...
I'm in love
I did pretty much that, in fact I pretty much copied the current Triumph offering...except in brushed aluminum
Where did you source the fenders...aluminum is a good choice.
has anybody posted up or been keeping track of what CRD is doing? excited to see this thing finished.
plenty of photo's here of the progress.
That's a really clean look -- totally hidden exhaust and carbs!
7 Metal West offers a variety of metals, ribs or no, ducktail or no. Good product built on demand so it takes a couple of weeks once your order is in. No affiliation, just used his parts and like the product.
Query for scrambler fans...
I'm in a position to decide what size front wheel to put on my R90 scrambler build. I've got a modified rear and XR600 forks, so the bike sits up higher than a normal airhead. I have a nice beefy 21" wheel for when I go truly offroad.
I'm having a second front wheel built for street and fireroads. I know 19" is the standard, but I am tempted to go with 18" for the option of a wider front tire (like a 4" K70) and a bit quicker handling on backroads. The difference in rake/trail is miniscule...
Any thoughts on this...?
Reckon this Rooney built bike qualifies as a scrambler
Its what you can't see in this build that would make it very interesting.
i could stand to see more of that bike
What tires are those? Mitas? E07's?
The E 07 appears to be the pick of the Mitas tyres, especially on the rear. Hard wearing, good handling, and good enough for dirt running, with something more aggressive on the front if needed.
that a seat straight from a new royal enfield rang the dealer and ordered it from spare parts cost $180
What's the ignition coil setup on that bike? Single coil with two outputs...?
looks like it!
some good ideas here
yup, thinking of buying a '79 R65 to start a little project
