    Lets start with the Motor

    I am having 5 x 74mm Crankshafts made here in Oz :evil

    I will pencil you in for one No???? :wink:

    With the 74mm stroke and 99mm bore you will have 1139cc :eek1

    Now if you run 100mm pistons you will have 1162cc, but I reckon its too much of a stretch .

    I am planning to get a pattern to JE pistons and have em custom made, but I have about 2 weeks of study to complete before I can get busy on this stuff.

    You thought about Turbo's?????

    Well this Bike I can make happend with a Freaking Grinder and welder and some bend tubes, so money is not a issue like it is with the Golem project (that part is making crazy, I selling all i have to get it started but not much is happening.)


    when i have a minute i show you guys pictures of the little progress i have done on it, but the progress took me already a long long way..

    ... see you on an airhead bike; I followed with great interest the Golem Rebirth thread. It must have been my post that suggested using an airhead frame like Team Incomplete, no I know, not really.

    Looking forwards to the project and the a challange to the oilhead, which is the real GS? Can it be better than the oilheads with modern updates? It will be lighter, easier to work on.

    One thing I love Motocicletas is that i can be as "Poliamorous" as i want to, with out getting in any trouble..

    I'm a Dye heart Oilhead fan (How can I not be after 400hundred something thousend milles..!?!?) but i can also apreciate the simplisity of the Airheads, to the point you offen wonder how this thing even run...
    [​IMG]

    Plus the elegance of the Airhead engine block and arquitecture of the power plant is to dye for, when the Oilheads are great machines they just don't really have much of a soul...

    well when Golem get revive will see, if the "Fire breathing dragon" comes alife and how grandious it will be.....:ricky

    Anyway I have a ton of things for sell to get Golem going, when for PeZZ_Tilence I can pretty much do it with a old toothBrush and a bucket of bolts.

    Here is a "go to sleep my baby" foto after "Washing" her Butt..

    they don't call me RicoSuave for nothing, even if I look more like Bela Lugosi

    Okay time for some real Action shots..:fyyff
    [​IMG]

    Handlebar-less i push (well LifT) the poor thing from the Cold garage into my "Living room" at the "Palacio" that i have on loan for a few months.
    [​IMG]

    Boy does she have a fat butt with that BigAss seat...!?
    [​IMG]

    She was very shy at first
    [​IMG]

    Nudity for sure is not a german quality, specially when is being 20 something years with out a bath
    [​IMG]

    The "hangers" for the Electrics look like came out of my old stove or something
    [​IMG]

    so static, so skinny, so flessy, so complicated to get (take one to get to the other one.) just one thing out with out the other.
    [​IMG]

    And then you wonder why she was kind of shy.
    [​IMG]

    I was ready to call Tarzan before i got into this jungle.

    actually the airbox was not so bad, just this cover under the starter, ergo the carburators are soehow clean (on the inside at least).
    [​IMG]

    Somehow this is close to the way I want to run the Pipes, upwards near the tank or maybe even inside the tank territory,, Yeah heat scares me shitless, but is also a miilion great isolators, ad heatsinks.
    will see on that topic.
    [​IMG]

    I just rotate the stock pipe a 180 deggres, imagine what will happend when I fabricate them my self (well JP the Genius) HOpefully out of stainless steel, but is 30dollars per bend.
    [​IMG]

    Like this example on one of his Rickman Maico's

    Houston we have a Little Problem
    [​IMG]

    the old owner was in a hurry to mount a tyre and forgot about swingarm clearance
    [​IMG]

    What a Dummy, who will do this...:yikes

    Me, ME, mE when i forget to Turn on the Switch
    [​IMG]

    Final drive Out, shock out, just the Empty and soon to be Un-emploid swingarm
    [​IMG]

    Oh Boy 20 years of desert.
    R-Dubb wants this swigarm for another of the Sisters, so i need to find something to replace it, no big deal I have a "few" spares.
    [​IMG]

    more to come in a second.

    Did I ever mension I'm a person "De Armas Tomar..!?!?" A.K.A. I Do not fuck around
    [​IMG]

    The swingarm was a piece of cake to take out, a 10MM 12 sided socket work just fine to disconnect the final drive and swigarm (well for one nut you need a close end wrench do to clearance, but is no big deal)
    [​IMG]

    Anyway to take the swingarm you need a 27MM socket (28Milimiter I can not remenber :loco ) and then a 6MM allen to take the two pivot rods, out so easy, plus a side effect , you can actually adjust the locaction of the swingarm by moving the two rods one side or another(on the oilheads, the Right side is Fix), this will become really useful very soon.

    sorry no fotos of this part.


    My friend mark came to visit, with out him you will never see this part since I was a "Little" to bussy to be taking pictures..
    [​IMG]

    Yes the next time I will take the clutch actuator push rod from the back, but this time i forgot,,,
    but ...You Don't forget...!!!!!!!!! is such a pain.
    [​IMG]

    I really Really Love this Shit.
    [​IMG]

    Then becomes time to Try some stuff.
    [​IMG]

    Yes, YES a paralever swingarm:smile6
    [​IMG]

    Before you start the whole thing about "Keeping her a classic", well first I Don't give a F^^K about "CLassic" and then it make a lot more sense to me to only have one type of rear wheel I can trade , from golem> to my bicycle rack bike> to PEZZ-Stilense and viseversa since I don't have much space to keep spares on my little studio(this palace is over in about two month, one ore reason to get Golem going before is to late)
    [​IMG]

    Mounting the new swingarm (for now) was super easy (I don't care if is not exact at the moment) in fact is nothing to it, nothing to cut, well actually the upper member on the frame , the ones that carry the battery box bracket needs to go or move upwards about 3/4 of a inch since it touches the swingarm.

    Hello Houston now we have a REALLY BIg ProBleM...!!!!!!!!!!!
    [​IMG]

    the freaking new swingarm places the wheel ReaLLy far from center.
    [​IMG]

    so I took some very basic and rudimentary measurements.

    F^^K:puke2
    [​IMG]

    Firsts ussing a long punch coming out for the center of the engine, ussing the Clutch splines to hold it.
    [​IMG]

    Yeah the Middle of the Blue tape is soppose to be on Axis with the Puch
    [​IMG]

    well in this case they are about 1 1/4' apart.
    [​IMG]

    i'm not worry, I sure i can do a few thing to "Convince" everybody to get along, ussing my "Holistic aproach" of cutting a little here and moving a little there.

    Now ussing the whole subframe for referece, the exact same amout.
    [​IMG]

    Be sure is much more to come..

    So what do i need to do. . .!?!?
    were do i send the money. . .??

    Actually maybe we need more than one, let me ask R-dubb, he is the man in charge of the triad (3 at least) of projects, and I get "whatever is Left"

    personally I'm building a Airhead more than anything do to their famous reliabiltiy, so i don't want to compromise this bike by making it into some stupid hot-rod (weak tranny does not help) oviuslly the more power the better but i don't want any "Molotof" compromises if is possible.

    I don't care much about top-end horse power, but I do about a flat (steedy upwards) increase of the power delivery to improve and facilitate drivavility in the dirt...:yikes

    I want more than anything a really torque base powerplant...

    also will be great if I can use one of the "narrow blocks" (from the /5 and /6 I beleive) to make the bike as skinny & narrow as possible (Trees, berms, cracks, rocks, Cars, riders, racers, etc)

    Again i know nothing about this bikes so maybe I'm stiicking my boot in between my teeth, exept for the fact I want to hack them up.

    Okay Pezz I give up...

    for the last 12 hours I'm being trying to understand how this idea of yours is going to work (i'm sure you know what you are doing), but i can not make sense out of it..

    I understand how you increase the amount of volume on the chambers by making the distance in between the connecting rods shorter, but how do you keep the compression to the same lever since the piston are not going to reach as far into the chamber.

    plus this sound very expensive if you are going to build them from the ground up.

    how much are they going to cost ...!?!?

    or are you going to re-manufacture a used bmw crank...!?

    just wondering.:yikes
