I thought that's what those were...
Do you have a pic of the back fender attachment and taillight setup? I'm making a hoop for the back of my subframe, but not quite sure how to attach the fender to it.
The nice nylon/plastic spacers came fom Lowes hardware bins; I sanded the angle of the fender into one face of the spacer for a tight fit. The fender dead ends about an inch from the battery which has an aluminum shield (bolted to the lower fender mount tabs) to protect it from debris.
Ah... Those spacers are a good idea. Well done...
...and the bottom one was built by Chris King in Alpine, TX.
I have a bike with a swingarm/shaft and subframe made by Chris...the rest of the bike was built by a local guy (Santa Cruz), on Chris' original ideas...
And was born as a 1977 R75/7, so there was done more then you'd think at first glance.
I know ,think I have ridden it
In the Airhead Flea Market...
21" Excel Rim laced to /5 hub. Built by Woody's.
Yowza! That rear disc is a neat trick, will you tell me how it's done?
The bike probably started life as a R100RS that came standard with a rear disc.
Bike is a R100 RS
Like your bike eruzo.
Interesting sub chamber on the front cross over. How does it make itself felt ?
May I ask whose front brake rotors, front and rear fenders and rear shocks ? almost forgot, whose mufflers ?
Front brake- K1100 calipers,Disk made special in Spain for mi bike, Fenders universal in ebay. Rear shocks Öhlins from Yamaha XJR 1300, Mufflers Megatons by ebay.
About that crossover chamber -- what does it do to sound or engine characteristics?
Lightened pistons, lightened crankshaft, connecting rods lightened, lightened flywheel, worked heads, big valves, dual ignition, etc, etc.
Big bore cylinders, pistons lightened, lightened crank, lightened crankshaft, lightened flywheel, camshaft fast, worked heads, big valves, etc.etc. Very fast engine.
Ya, I didn't look closely enough, I mistook the rear wheel as wire spokes.
