    I've got a Motorrad gespanne upstairs with an artikel about that guy with the diesel Zeus. If someone is interested, i can post his name. He is a friend of Bert111 who also owned a Zeus at some moment.

    No, Sammie isn't at my place. I think he would be one of the last people i would invite.

    The Junkyard Dog H-D with Kubota 3 cylinder diesel installed.

    I can't find a pic of the one with an upright big single diesel installed in and driveing the bike from the sidecar.

    The XS and Unit forks have now been sold and been replaced with a Yamaha XJ900S Diversion (or Seca for you colonial types)

    Indeed it is, it's actually Tottington near Bury. Blackburn is over the hill in the next vally!

    I haven't posted a pic here since last Spring, so here's one from this summer.

    Hells Canyon, Idaho. On Kleinschmidt Road. The camera is level but pointed somewhat downwards.
    The Kleinschmidt grade is about the same as the grade on the road across the way there (Hess Road).
    At the bottom of this canyon is the Snake River, dividing Oregon and Idaho.

    And guess what ? I know the guy ( Floris Velthuis ) that took the pics for his blog very well so I'll contact him for more info !!


    [edit] Floris told me that's all he has on this hack, no more pics, no info, too bad [edit]
