I want to put together a better bike than the Boxer of Hammers. I want to put together a more purpose built race bike, specific to off road endeavors, and I could use your input. Dont want to use a standard loop frame. Dont want it to be a re-purposed street bike, cool as that is. Not going to bother with HPN gussets and tinkering with all that. I want a Rooney Frame. We'll see how he comes back with pricing. HEre are the basic ideas: Rooney frame (white, probably) with the 1100 swingarm and paralever rear diff. Ohlins rear shock in center mounted/no linkage R1100GS position. Front end: something modern, either DRZ, or CRF, or YZ/WR. Actually leaning towards Honda or Yamaha. Something post 2008, but I dont need/want USD's, necessarily. Engine: Well, the R65 turned into an 850 ala rooney is a great suggestion for getting the overall width 50mm narrower, but there is a LOT of jiggery-pokery, and expense. Probably straight up R100 would be the overall best result? Best bang for buck, as long as the overall dimensions are all the same? Probably dual plug the heads and do a powerdynamo ignition. Dual plugs for better fuel consumption and redundancy. Probaly DR650 30L tank, unless i also get one of Rooney's collector/exhausts that allows both rear side of the bike to be clear, and I still a pair of 8L tanks back there, and go with a smaller tank up front, like a 12 or 15L. (I like this idea) This should give me a 60horse airhead that weighs 350lbs with 12inches of travel. Is this something you all could help me with, idea-wise?
