Thank You ! This is my home, city: Érd. Look on the earth.google.com.
Hi Master Rudo ! What is teh news on the Tatooine ????
I've just moved to Switzerland and want something fun to beat around the area on the weekends. I've found this RD03 on my doorstep and spent some time looking through this (incredible) thread but this one has been tinkered with (seems like its with good stuff) and I just wanted to get some insight into whether or not you guys would view it as an attractive build.
If you could kindly let me know if you think its a good bike, I would really appreciate it.
It's certainly not original and those WP front forks and the single disc with the Brembo caliper look very appealing for any serious off road. So if it's dirt you want to pound I would say...yeah go for it. The asking price might seem high to some but then again you get what you pay for right? And only 20,000 kms....just a baby. I like it.
Other than that odd sqare headlamp (that all the Swiss bikes seem to have), I can find nothing wrong by studying the photos. The PO took pains to prevent paint being worn off the tank by adding those black areas near the saddle. That's the point where my boots wear on the tank so the bike was shown a bit of extra love.
You can change the front fairing and lamps by getting parts in Germany so it looks like a proper AT.
As with any fork conversion, you will want to make certain that the fork travel was built correctly so the front wheel does not contact the frame or top triple-clamp on full compression. Only fiddling with the bike or trusting the word of the owner/builder can tell you this.
Is the rear suspension altered to compensate for the front? Difficult to tell from the photos.
Crashbars are an important addition since the RD03 bodywork is starting to be difficult to find.
