    you're right, does look good, but don't touch' em, yours are one of a kind and replacing them take away from the provendance.

    Wanted to upgrade my forks to something better then the spindly 35mm units that came stock, but still look period correct. Found a set of Marzocchi M1R forks that had been set in SP clamps (195mm spacing) with a custom carbon fiber fork brace. Took awhile to figure out spacers etc but got it on the road today. 380EE27C-2788-4816-BD93-A632832C6460.jpeg

    I also got rid of the wrist torturing clipons for a set of Renthal low rise bars. They are almost the same bend as the SP bars on my T3. Used the stock LM3 cables and brake lines.
    I’ll box up the original forks etc so it can be set back to stock.

    This is the 76 Lemans project I purchased about three years ago. A good friend of mine bought it as is from a guy in south Florida and he talked me into buying the project as he wasn't going to put the bike back together. Almost everything was there except for the common parts that have been fairly easy to find. I'm still looking for original grey bell housings for the carbs and an early left side foot peg hanger which doesn't have the boot plate.

    All the usual parts went to the powder coater:

    And everything else went to the painter:

    I rebuilt the engine with new sourced barrels, pistons and a newly ground Raceco cam.

    The wiring harness and Dyna ignition being installed:

    New headers were ordered from Teo Lamers along with new Lafranconi muffler's from Germany but they are somewhere in the shipping no man's land/US customs

    In the meantime, I've painted up the shot muffler's to basically kill some time. The front master cylinder and throttle have shown up and a box of brake parts also came in today so those items will be installed next. The Dyna coils which should have been here a week ago are also somewhere out there.

    Had to brave the wilds of the outside world yesterday and run into work for a bit, so I took the Eldo - I love this thing, so chill and just a delight to ride. I just put the Q back together after a bunch of maintenance so I took it for a brief spin too, needs fresh gas and the new front brake pads bedded in but all good. :super

    I got two of mine out Sunday for the first time in over a month. Just puttered around some local backroads, 30 mins. on the V700 and 45 on the Convert. Helped brighten my mood considerably.

    Yessir, even just a short blast can brighten the day indeed. Envious of the lawn mowing already... well, the riding too. :ricky


    Timely post. I have an old Bat Wing up in the barn that I was thinking of using on the Hack but... I will be hard pressed to find the directionals and reflectors to fill those voids on the fairing. I do have the rods for mounting and can fab up something to do onto the bars but those lenses are going to be a challenge.
    Are (were) these made by Bates or…?

    Great looking G5, is that former Police or just painted in the same livery…?

    Best,

    This bat wing is Shoei, I think they were common somewhere in the seventies and eighties, but hard to come by nowadays. I used the original upper brackets and fabricated lower ones. Should you need pictures of the brackets, I can take some. The bike is what I know an LAPD presentation bike, but was not purchased by the dept. but sold further on without the police gear. Original paint, I also have original panniers, handlebars and some other parts.
