What is that swingarm off of? And how long is the rear shocks? ED
the swingarm is off from an XL350, but the work required to adapt it is really excessive !!!
The next time I will build one of them i start my job from a steel sheet !!!
The reason for which I have acted in this way, is the difficulty in finding chromium molybdenum steel bars.
Shock absorbers are long 33cm , but I think to replace them with Ohlins or Furlanes gas shocks.
Stay tuned !!!
Thanks, I just got a XT 500 frame again. Will set-it up for enduros i think. Stock forks, stock swingarm. ED
Awesome workmanship Tony Any updates/progress with the project
PEDAL ASSY, BRAKE
specially racing oil cooler
painting and decals
That looks awesome!
OK guys ..... ready to start.
Very, very, very sweet!!!
ooohhhh...the envy in me is strong!!! nice job!
Reminds me of what Gégé (Gerard Anthony, Ateliers dh Désert) was doing on the French-Cult XT500.... I even sold him a beautiful XT in 97 which he transformed for the 20 years of the Dakar!!
Congrats on your job!! (gave me ideas for my old 77 in the garage..)
Thank you all for the compliments.
Your 77 has already a nice rear axle !!!
if you need help to make tank or oil cooler i'll be happy to assist you !!!
Wow, you ''did the damn thang'' very nice, id like to see a video if it.
Thks TonyXT for your proposal... I have a "elongated" TT swing arm and long Progressive shocks, a big bore kit, Megacycle cam/springs/rockers and dual oil line(s). I'll keep like it this (maybe a new alternator/ignition from PowerDynamo when I win the Lotto!) still have to install my disc front fork-wheel one of these days!!
But this is to play around and look cool!! The day I want to hit the "adventure" road, I'll take my XT250 with the "magic button"!!! I am too much within the heart attack age to kick the damn thing when hot or after a spill!!
If I remember well there was even a small skid/water tank under the Dakar ones (late Dakar regulations!!). More alloy to work on!!
love the build; great tank & oil cooler!
makes me want an XT even more than i already do :)
We're building a XT for the Mexican 1000 next month. Read about it on our thread in racing- LAMEco & Race for the Wounded take on the Mexican 1000. Not near as fancy as your bike!!
Really nice work,I had a love hate relationship with the couple I had.Loved the stump pulling power off idle and after some suspension work its ability to slide,I really loved to slide the back to the max.I absolutely hated it before the suspension work,it would hook up and loft the front and spin sideways,well thats was ok come to think.Starting it when hot was what KILLED it for me.Spent to much time laying on the tank panting like a dead dog after a couple of hundred attempts at kicking it.Love the BUTTON.
and the fire????
